Publishing a book.. ?

QUESTION
Publishing a book.. ?
I’m only 12 years old (soon to be 13) and i really want to publish this book i wrote. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on how to go about this… step by step… names, numbers.. whatever. And, if this helps, i live in Canada… just so you know. Please, just tell me whatever you know, Thanks 😀 <3 ANSWER There are some routes to go. If your book is good, you could try a literary agent. That is your best entre' to the larger publishers. Most of them do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. They like authors with a track record. Romance novels are the exception. You could self publish using some on-line tools. They won't edit and there are no guarantees that anyone will read it. You could also use Vantage Press. They will edit. I would recommend looking into magazines that publish essays or other items of interest. If you think ahead, you could find a theme that will be of interest to a magizines future issue. That will give you a track record.
