Hm...

Quote:
Meyer says that the idea for Twilight came to her in a dream on June 2, 2003.[16] The dream was about a human girl and a vampire who was in love with her but thirsted for her blood.
50.000 people went before.... and another 50.000 will go after.

Quote:
Of the 15 letters she wrote, five went unanswered, nine brought rejections, and the last was a positive response from Jodi Reamer of Writers House.[19] Eight publishers competed for the rights to publish Twilight in a 2003 auction.[19] By November, Meyer had signed a $750,000 three-book deal with Little, Brown and Company.
So, getting published and getting rich by it is more luck than anything it seems?. If your story is half-decent, you could make it by just contacting as many agencies as possible.
