comment Meeting with a respected publisher, what questions should I ask?
This really cuts to the nature of my issue, thanks. It's my first novel, I'm not there to pitch, though if they're interested, great! Fundamentally though I do want expert feedback from them. This answer gives a nice framework through which to do that.

Good ideas, I wish there were submission guidelines to be found. For the one-to-one session all the info I have is: "Please submit a cover letter, one-page synopsis and first chapter/30 pages. The cover letter should include a one-line pitch for the novel." - Their website says "currently accepting submissions of finished manuscripts in the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres."

comment Methods for writing from an alternate gender/age/cultural viewpoint?
Whilst there are intrinsic issues with research, there's nothing stopping you talking with kids or women about the things you're writing about. I'd recommended you sit and listen to people converse in order to better learn dialog, ways of speaking etc.

I appreciate the edit, though some answers would be welcome! In fact @neil, I'll be meeting a literary editor too, have any feedback on the same question but editor focused?

comment Does self publishing via Amazon or similar services make your book ineligible for later acceptance by a publisher?
Much like your virginity, your publishing debut IS special. Lots of the writing competitions I've seen preclude published writers. If that's not a concern then as has been said, proving you can sell books is a great way to get interest.
