Can someone tell me more about book publishing?

I’m in the middle of writing a book. The only thing is i’m not really sure how everything works. What happens next, what must i do to get my book published etc. Do i have to pay or do i get paid?

You could do some research on all the options you have for publishing a book. Yes, you can go look for an agent, but you can also consider other possibilities like self-publishing and print-on-demand services.

Try checking out the publishing process offered by Xlibris, a self-publishing company at http://www2.xlibris.com/faq_publishing_process.html. That will give you an idea of their publishing process.
