Would anyone here know how to begin the process for having a book published?

My wife had gastric bypass surgery four years ago. She kept a journal about her experience before and during that time. The added twist to this story occured this year when she gave birth to our third child (a healthy baby boy).

She has had a lot of people (men and women) want to talk to her about the surgery, the good and the bad. Many of these people are contemplating having this surgery and are very curious about her experience. SHe is quite happy to talk with them and explain, to the best of her ability, the situation involved.

We were discussing this situation a few days ago and joked about having her write a book about her journey through this experience, from the days before, during, and her successful pregnancy afterward. After some long thought though, we wondered if it would be something to persue.

We believe it would not only be profitable, but more importantly help other people who are seriously considering going through with this life changing surgery.

Neither one of us are writers. My wife believes she may have something to say that many people may be interested in learning/reading about. Any advice on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading,
