How can I, being an adolescent, publish a book?

I was writing in class today, and I realized I really enjoyed writing. I would like to write and publish books. Does anyone know of a CHEAP way to do this? Or who to talk to?

Well, it is NOT easy.
Start with websites like livejournal, or even start a blog where you put up your pieces. It is a great way to be discovered. Keep in mind that very few authors, no matter the age, end up getting published. However, don't let that discourage you. Follow your passion and never give up:)!

Go to Amazon.com. They now offer self-publishing services for really reasonable prices. Each book is printed only when it's purchased. I've got a lot of artist friends who have used the service.

You're lucky to be in this era. Back when I was starting out I had to do years of work to get an agent, then get stacks of rejection letters before finding a good publisher, then had to search long and hard for a good editor. Not to mention, self publishing was VERY expensive and very hard to do.

Be very careful what you put online. Many less talented writers troll the Internet looking to steal story ideas from less experienced, non published authors. Until you finish & poor man copy write, writers guild register or self publish your finished work, someone can steal it.

Keep trying, keep writing & follow your dreams!
