Question
How much writing experience do I need to publish a book?  

Answer
Dear Jeff,
Thank you for your question. You don't actually need any experience to write a book. However, it has to be a great book, because the markets are competitive and crowded. Usually the big publishers pick up authors who have been journalists, or have other experience in writing, or are already famous for something else. Basically, big publishers are looking for authors who have a ready-made audience.
However, many medium to small publishers publish material from unknown writers. It happens all the time. Every author has to start somewhere.

If you have any more questions, feel free to write back.
Sincerely,
Nori
