Question
I have written a mystery novel.  I am a single mother with limited income.  Please advise the best way to get published.

Answer
Visit a bookstore or library to identify publishers that have handled similar works. Contact each of them and request a copy of their prospectus requirements.  Prepare the requested documentation and send it to them.

If you're not offered a contract, you may want to consider working through a literary agent, who will charge a percentage of your royaltiess.
