Ready to go!

I got my manuscript ready to send to 10 different publishers by mail and another 3 online.  Each of the envelopes includes a query letter (a formal way to ask them to take a look), a short biography, the manuscript, in some cases a German translation and several copies of the illustrations and sketches.

The manuscripts will be sent all over Germany, one to the UK and another to the US (Michigan). You have to send out a lot of submissions, since only 5-10% of manuscripts get accepted. Dr Seuss even had to send 28 submissions before he got accepted with his first children’s book. Having endurance and determination pays off in this business!

I am confident and not in a big hurry. Seeing the stuff looking so nice is amazing!

  1. Congratulations! I can’t wait to get to this point. Like you said, I’m not in a hurry, but I fantasize about seeing my completed manuscript laid out ready to go. Good luck!

    1. thanks saywer for your comment! All I can say is that you just have to keep knocking until someone opens that door. It takes a bit of work and time, but it’s worth it :)
