How does one go about publishing a book? When they are 13 years old?

And I'm not talking about some pathetic little publishing company that will never get my book out into the world, nor am I talking about a stupid contest. You know, Scholastic kid's book contest winners don't get the money for their books that sell?

First off if you have a finished product put together a synopsis and a query letter. Research the various publishers to find one where your manuscript fits. Address your Query to the current editor. You could also pursue an agent, they will take care of finding the publisher for a commission.
