Question
How much experience do I need to publish a book -  

Answer
Dear Nkathazo,
Thank you for your question. The basic answer is that you do not need any experience, you just need a good manuscript. It does help if you have a resume of writing experience. However, a good publisher will sometimes take a manuscript from an unknown writer if it's the right book at the right time. The writing business is very competitive and not a reliable source of income, but if you have a story to tell, you may need to tell it. Getting your message out can be very rewarding.
At my site I have posted a couple of articles you might find interesting, see:

There's an article on how to find a publisher and check out the Fiction Writers Workshop.
I hope this helps. Best to you. Write back anytime.
Sincerely,
Nori
