  1. Mark -- or Liza -- please see my answer below.

    Another suggestion -- ask other people to read your ms. and make comments on it.

    For a first-time novelist, I suggest you finish the entire book before you send it to publishers. Some authors find helpful feed-back from others who write in the same genre. Check if there are authors' groups you can join.
