Now some people might think, “What is she getting all excited about?”
Well, let me tell you why I’m all excited. Earlier today, I got a rejection on a book proposal. I did the market research and it was a great fit but the industry is not that open now in some ways. Some picture book authors, even some really well-known ones, have gotten rejected several times before they got their first contract. Guess I’ll have to send it to a new publisher tomorrow as I got a nice comment on it.
So while I would have loved to have got a picture book contract, I’m delighted to be accepted in a children’s magazine. It is my fourth story. (Three fictions and one nonfiction.)
