How to get published?

I was wondering if there is anyone on here who has ever had a book published? I looked for an ible and couldn't find one.

Try looking in your phone book for local publishers. If you cannot find one, take it to google to find the nearest publisher around.

I was published in a book. My grandmother had a book published, I may ask her. OK?

Thank you, please do!
I think she used this website called and paid for it you can check that out. That's most likely the route I'll take.

I'm hard at work on mine (did I ever show it to you? Can't remember...), I'm seriously thinking of just submitting it to a publisher and seeing what happens. I mean, I'm not trying to act all conceited, I just think it's...not awful. Pretty good. Better than some books I've seen published, anway. Worst case scenario, I could just sell it on metacafe.
I've got the same theory, it's better than other books. No I don't think so, if it's a big file pm it's location in your library or something...
Some points:

Get an agent.
Print out your manuscript double-spaced, in a basic font like this,without fancy layouts.
Attach a cover-page, with your name, address, and an approximate word-count of your book. You could also attach a brief summary of the book (style, plot etc), but that's not necessary.
