Hi. I'm recently completed a novel, but I'm 14 years old. Will this be a problem when getting published? I really need some help and some tips on how to get an agent interested in my work. Also, please read the summary of my book and give me feedback. Please help. My book is approximately 35, 800 words in length. Thanks.
Tyler Anderson was a normal teenage boy. He was just trying to fit in like everyone else. One day, when an out of place earthquake rattles is hometown of Houston Texas, he discovers the unimaginable. Ty, and the girl that lives across the street, Taylor, find that the earthquake wasn’t a natural occurrence. It is up to them to dig deep into a global corporation’s shady background, and save the lives of their loved ones…and possibly the world.

The best place to ask for advice would be on the Writer's board. Scroll down the bottom of the bookclubs main page to find the group. Brandi moderates that forum.
I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

First of all, a very big congratulations to you. That is a huge accomplishment at 14 years old and you should be very proud.
In terms of publishing, it is a great time to be a 14 year old author with the explosion of ebooks. You can upload your book through B&N's Pubit! and start selling your book in just a few days. It's a great option that is free and easy to get your book out there in front of readers. Check it out and have fun.

Thanks for the advice Susan! I've queried some agents, but I'm having trouble getting their attention. Any tips?
