I just took the time to check out the workshop with Evelyn B. Christensen on the Institute of Children’s Literature’s Writer’s Retreat. Evelyn is the author of many puzzle books which is something that I have always wanted to do.
She graciously shared the link to her website where her instructions for making puzzles and word searches exists. Be sure to check out the website @ http://echristensen.atspace.com/ and the ICL workshop she did @http://institutechildrenslit.net/.
Often a writer can only guess if they are doing something right. It helps to see what my readers are thinking, so your comments are most appreciated.

As a writer, I know how lousy it is to not get closure, to never hear back from an editor or agent. However, I find the simple act of replying, even with a form decline, multiplied by the amount of queries I receive, is taking time away from my my clients and my family. Hopefully, knowing if I am interested or not within 1 MONTH will compensate for my lack of response.
I look forward to reading your work so keep on querying!
Email Queries Only. NO snail mail.
Please email your query plus the first 10 pages of your manuscript pasted into the body of your email to jill@HermanAgencyInc.com

I no longer send form declines. If you do not receive an email response to your query + 10 pages within a month, I am sorry but I am not the right agent for your work.
