Okay, if anybody here has being through the process of trying to get a novel published seriously then a word of advice on what I say and whether it is true or not would be greatly appreciated. When the novel is finished, spell checked and reviewed a billion times over...What exactly do I do with it? It is called a manuscript, am I right? Basically, will I need to print off the manuscript on good quality paper etc a couple of hundred times, copyright it maybe to ensure they don't steal it? (But I believe publishers do that themselves anyway, don't they?) All I'm saying is...the point of it all when done is print, print and print the manuscript and then send it out to every publisher known to man until the responses start coming back. Is this true? Or am I completely wrong?
