For the new author, sending off your first manuscript to the publisher is a momentous occasion and scary as heck. Will they like it? What if they hate it and say the book is not good enough. What if they reject it and me? But what if someone says, 'Yes'? That begins the tumultuous journey through publishing.
What I do before submission is to run my manuscript 100 ways to Sunday through edits and spell and grammar checkers. Look at your manuscript with a critical eye, for odd spacing, punctuation (missing or misplaced), quote marks, and any meta data that needs to be in the front and back of your book.
Sure that your book is ready to go, send it up, they do not agonize or chew off your nails in baited anticipation. I also after a couple of days call the company to make sure they got my manuscript. Most submissions are now down via an online link and you may have an agent or publishing rep that is assigned right away. Make them your best friend and keep in touch for the duration of this next and strange trip!
We'll address some more concerns as time goes by.
