365 (blog #2)

I have two WordPress blogs. This one is all about what I do for a living — writing, marketing and strategic consulting. My other blog, Three Hundred Sixty-Five, is all about a personal challenge — to write every day for a year. Hope you check it out.

    I am at heart a children’s writer, but I have never attempted to get them published since I havent a clue where to start. I dont even know if they are good enough to interest a children’s publisher. Do you have any ideas for me? I have a couple of children’s poems in my children’s section of my blogsite if you want to view an example, and I will be posting others next year.

      I am not in the publishing industry, so I can’t really help. Here’s what I can tell you: When looking for a literary agent you need to send what’s called a submission package along with samples/manuscripts. Google submission packages for writers of children’s’ books and poetry. That will tell you what’s needed. Once that’s done Google literary agents for writers of children’s’ books and poetry. While there are always some exceptions, most publishers won’t deal with authors directly. You have to have an agent. Anyway, go to the agents’ websites and see what their rules are for submitting. And also check to see if they’re accepting new authors. Agents get cranky when you send out mass submission packages so do one at a time.

      Expect rejection. Don’t take it personally. It’s very difficult for previously unpublished authors to get agents and/or published. Doesn’t mean you won’t, though.

      Or you can just seriously consider self-publishing. It’s very sophisticated now, very doable, not that difficult and even established authors are doing it. Google it.

      Hope this helps. Good luck.
