So a good friend of mine, out of the clear blue asked me for a favor. He asked me to read something and tell him what I think. Little did I know my goofball of a friend was a closet Sci-Fi novelist and he handed me memory stick with a 400 page novel in it. The crazy thing is...its freakin good. After I read it the first thing I told him was he needs to get it published. Unfortunately he is way too shy and sheepish. His wife also agrees that he needs to talk to a publisher, but his response to the both of us is...I don't know how Any GT writers out there can explain, in plain English, the process of how a first time writer can get a book published.
