I had a look at the publishing submission process. It was a little more than I expected. As well as submitting either the finished manuscript/chapter summaries/writing sample you need to answer some questions. It's the kind of thing you need to consider on your own anyway when I really thought about it. They ask you your scope, your audience, and your competition. This presents two problems; my chapter summaries are very basic and I'm also not very aware of my competition. I'm not sure on the other science fiction novels out there. I imagine people who enjoy the Star Wars novels would enjoy it but I can't really say "This book was released last year and I reckon people who liked that would like this."

I'm still considering it but right now I have serious anxiety issues. Not to mention you have to wait a few months before getting a response, if any. I'd submit something to the publisher then spend the next three months worrying about what happened. For now I'll probably stick to self publishing, but I suppose we'll see how I feel in a few months when the story is closer to being finished/is actually finished.
Who knows? Maybe a publisher will see this and send me an email. Hi random publisher!
