How do you get a book published?

This might sound stupid. But I've written a book and I've shown it to some of my trusted freinds and family. They think it's good for publicity, only problem is that I have no idea how to get it published. Can you guys tell me how?

Firstly,you should need to get your work accepted by a literary agent, because the big publishers only take submissions from literary agents. Info on how to get an agent can be found here. Once you have an agent, he or she will take care of selling your manuscript to big publisher. And that may get some newspaper review coverage. But don't count on much. The extent of that coverage has declined over the years and the simple fact is that most books never get reviewed.

    Literary Marketplace is the title of an annual publication of the book publishing trade. Your local public library probably holds a copy. It lists literary agents and what there specialties are. Also, one of the reference/information librarians at your local public library can help identify other recently published books which provide information about how to get a book published, including the option of self-publishing.
