The number of people who refuse to do any research about the publishing business amazes me. Internet access is at an all-time high. Libraries have free electronic searches and knowledgable staff. Same for most bookstores. And yet, people fail to use any of these resources. A simple search on "publishing a book" pulls up over 57 MILLION websites on Bing.
That's just Bing.
Google will pull over twice as many.
Granted you have to weed out some of the crap, but you have no excuses for not finding the necessary information.
My local Barnes & Noble? Seven four-foot shelves packed with books on how to write (ranging from chidren's picture books to erotic romance), how to find an agent, and how to get published.
Quite simply, no one has an excuse for not learning how the publishing industry works.
