Breaking Down Publisher Guidelines - What a Writer Needs to Know
Popular opinion will vary on whether or not one should submit a "NaNoWriMo" novel to a publisher - critics tend to suggest that writers who participate in NaNoWriMo will write the book in November and start the agent/publisher search the very next month.

After all, the more publishers you approach, the better your chance of getting a book published are.
