I apologize if it sounds blunt, but I'd say the best way to start is to finish. Many people have great ideas inside, and don't take the first step. Many take the first step, but never the last step. Finish your beautiful book and then start contacting publishers. The internet has made them very easy to find.

Yes. Urgh. I have a kid's book about bereavement that was rejected AND accepted four times. each time, they said "We'll take this is you change the ending". But the ending was really important to me and I couldn't make myself change it. So it remains, unchanged, and unpublished.
