    I do not have cash to invest in publishing my manuscript.

    I think I must be confused or something, or maybe you are.

    If I have a manuscript ready to be published: Why should I be paying anything to a publisher to print and publish it? Are they not supposed to be paying the Author for all of his/her hard work? If you are being asked by some publisher for money so that the publisher can do their job, get another one fast.

    Unless you are doing self-publishing, you should not be paying for your manuscript to be published.

    Here is a great website about vanity publishers and what to avoid: http://www.sfwa.org/for-authors/writer-beware/

    good luck with publication!

    You don't pay anything upfront to have a manuscript published, publishers pay you.
    Publishers that want payment are called Vanity publishers, stay away from them.
