How do I move forward?
by Elizabeth Spaulding
I have a rough copy of a children's book that I have written. I'm not sure how to begin to get published.
I'd like advice, information or simple "How-To Instructions for Dummies."
I'm also struggling to determine which age group to aim this story book towards; it could easily be a story that would work for different ages.
To get an agent or not?
To get an agent, or not to get an agent, that is the question.
I have this picture book poem/story that I wrote a long time ago, and I think it has a chance of being published. I am getting ready to run it through my critique group. But then what?
Agents cost money. I am broke. I really don't see the picture book making tons of money to help cover an agent's cost. Should I just start querying publishers? Or would that just be shooting myself in the foot?
I was flipping through the Writer's Market (reviewed on this site) and am a bit torn about whether to pursue an agent or not.
Tips? Suggestions? Is an agent not as expensive as I think?
I need help getting my children's book published
I have talked with a couple of publishing companies, but they wanted me to send them money. I want to make money from my book not lose money. Can someone help me please?
submission format for picture books
by Lesli Lytle
Since most of the story and humor is told in the pictures, and all I'm submitting are the words, how do I tell a publisher what needs to be included in the artwork for each page?
I've written my manuscript by page, but the first thing I do, in parentheses, is describe the basic elements needed in the art.
The text follows.
Let me know if I'm wrong, please.
