Any publisher would be deeilhtgd to publish your work *if* they thought they could make a profit by so doing. That means your stories have to stand on their own merits against published stories written by adults. Being merely good for your age isn't going to cut it.As an aside, most of the major publishers (the ones who can get your book into bookshops) won't consider your book unless you have an agent. An agent's job is to sift through the thousands of mostly-unreadable manuscripts that wannabe authors send him every year and forward the ten or twenty that he thinks stand a chance to whichever publisher(s) he thinks will be most interested in them.
