If you want to be published, just do what I do. Re-read your novel over and over. Soon the owner of a publishing house will appear at your door with one million dollars cash (and some illegal drugs and weapons), begging you for your book. If you're smart, you'll do what I did and hold out for twice what they offered. It's been a while now, but I just know they're coming back.
