    I ask because I've written loads, had a lot performed, but I've never been published or paid.

    are you referring to authors of books or other publication types (e.g. academic journals, magazines, newspapers)?

    Instead of playing 20 questions, wouldn't it be faster to say what you're looking for? icon_wink.gif

    Exactly, because I have written for a column in the South Florida Gay News a few times.

    I really have questions about becoming published. Fictional novel , but I'm sure it all goes through the sane process right?

    Ha!
    Great typo.
    There's nothing sane about getting published.
    When someone figures out how to get recognition, let me know.

    i asked because publishing in an academic journal, which i have experience, is very different from publishing a book through some publishing house or on your own. academic journal articles typically go through a journal editorial process followed by peer-review followed by additional self and journal editing.

    for publishing a book, you may want to check out these two sites

    I've self-published, which is really easy through Amazon. Self-promotion is key and if you can get your name out there enough, a publisher might see it or you might have success just selling through self-publishing, which has no overhead costs.

    Through the publisher route, you have to find an agent, since most publishers don't take unsolicited material. It takes a lot of shopping around to get a publisher.
