gotten anything published or anything like that.

Here is my situation:

I wrote a book, and my dad managed to find a guy who can help get me started publishing and **** like that. There is only one thing, he wants to read it first, so I basically have to write out a synopsis (summary) of the whole thing. Which I am already working on. He wants the first 50 pages or so too so yeah.

Has anyone else been in a situation like this or simmilar to this, and suggestions or advice you can give me. All help is appreciated, thanks.
VERY METAL!

Society's doing great. There's a rise of people like PlayMadness. I feel pretty good about the way things are going.

You of course will have to type it out too, so we can get a summary also... PLEASH!

Thanks for telling us what a synopsis is.

But is this book just a collection of the threads you've started and is it over 9000 pages long?


I jest, I jest.

Why is it that some folks quote praise from other members in their sig lines?
Its lame.

that's fairly standard for agents seeking out new talent, if they liek your synopsis/sample they will ask for a full manuscript, then they will refer you to an editor and try to get a company to publish you.

Honestly, my best advice is to make sure you get a really good editor.

But I'll tell you guys when its done so you can read it for yourself

I would love a summary of your book if you wanted to PM it. I've wanted to write a book for the longest time...

I got a short story "published." I entered a short story contest back in 7th grade and won at the school level. It was apparently put in some sort of magazine or something.

I kind of got published once. Funny story, actually.

My English teacher junior year of high school made us write poems and submit them to various publications for credit towards our grade in the class. Well, at the time, I felt that I couldn't be arsed to write an actual poem, so what I did was I opened Microsoft Word's speech-to-text translator and started saying random stuff...I think I read off some song lyrics or something. Anyway, the program was horrible to begin with, and what made it worse was it hadn't been 'trained' to know my voice better, so the result was a paragraph of the most unholy nonsense I've ever read in my life, which I divided into stanzas and turned in. The funny part is that it was published in the school's yearly poetry compilation AND a national book of student poetry. Needless to say, when I found out, I ROFL'd.

And that's my story. Sorry it doesn't help you, TS.

I had a poem/song published in a magazine, but I didn't have to go through that.

Congratulations though.
