Read a lot.

Go to book-related events.

Always be professional and good to work with, even if you're writing for free. Meet your deadlines. Don't throw tantrums. Proofread your stuff.

Respond well to feedback. If someone takes time to read the unfinished version of a long project, they have done you a wonderful favor.

Expect 100 rejections of various types before you get your first book published. Then, if you get rejected 80 times, you'll feel like a superstar.(less)
