Any tips for getting published?
I'm not a publisher or an agent, so no need to send me your work. I'm afraid I can't offer any feedback on your no doubt, heart felt, sweat drenched efforts.
I recommend the Writers & Artists Yearbook for contacts to send your work to. These people know what they are doing.
Have a look over my answers to questions I am frequently asked, there's some info about how I first got published.

Where can I get a signed book?
I'd like to take this opportunity to support my local bookshop, you can purchase a signed book from Books Of Wonder in New York. Visit www.booksofwonder.com online or use their contact form.
I cannot accept books in the mail to sign and be returned.

I'd love to receive a letter from you.
Please send it to:
51 Bergen Street,

Though, please be patient for a response, I have a habit of biting off more than I can chew. And also please note I can't receive packages of books to be signed and returned.
Do you do workshops / events / school visits?
As much as I enjoy saying hello to everyone who enjoys my books, my workload means I can only undertake a few tours a year.
