Hello.

So i've finally finished my book and i'm finally done editing it, and i want to know what to do? I've been told to get it proof read, or to send it to publishers but how do i go about that? Any advice at all would be great.

hi ...

I have a VERY long blog about it on my MySpace page.

If you go to
http://www.myspace.com/nicoledelsesto

and then I have a box that has my old blogs in it ... find the one called "I'm an author, huh" and I've detailed out what I went through.

But yes ... you need to edit like crazy, and you should get a good resource book on sending queries to agents. The book I reference in my blog is US focused (primarily)

Miss Snark, Literary Agent is an entertaining and informative resource. Be sure to look over the Snarkives.
