I have a 17 year old daughter, who is an amazing writer. She is writing , and almost done, a book about a (redacted.) I was wondering if you could guide me on who to talk too about getting it published?
I could but I'm not gonna.
The best thing you can do for a kid who loves to write is just let them write.
Let them write 486 novels, short stories, novellas, poems, and cereal box copy if they want to.
Writing and being published are two very different things.
Publishing will break your heart. Writing will fill your heart.
You pick which one you want for your kid.
That said, if your kid wants to be published, she'll figure out how to google "how to get published" without any help from Mum, Dad, or Aunt SharklyOne.
And like a butterfly breaking free of her cocoon, it's important that your kid do the work herself. She needs to beat her wings against the barriers to get strong.
And if you absolutely cannot help yourself, buy her a book on how to get published like Writers Digest Guide to Agents, and then sit on your hands and tape your mouth, then go bake cookies or adopt a kitten. Writers need cookies, and kittens. (The bourbon will come later.)
