1. Write the book! You can make it better later, but first you have to make it exist!
2. Care about craft. Read every book about writing, take every class about writing, attend every conference about writing that you can find. Try to apply everything you learn to the work in progress (see #1).
3. Do the work. There is no secret or magic to getting published. Much of it simply takes tedious research and patience.
