|Debbie Ridpath Ohi's Will Write for Chocolate|
With some solid critique advice from several trusted SCBWI members and my own CP, I have made Redbird at Her Window sparkle. Here's what I've accomplished in the past two weeks:
~Picture book ms critiqued & polished...check.
~Satisfying query + hook + personalized each letter per agent...check.
~Researched literary agent bios and submission guidelines...check.
~Submitted queries + text to a few hand-picked agents...check.
Oh, Agent! Where art thou? I know, sit back and wait. But, while I'm waiting, I'll work on the other two manuscripts that are near completion. Woot!
Wanted to share...
For all of you writers who specialize in children's, picture books through YA, have I got a treat for you! In my research, I came across an excellent source for literary agents who take picture books. Author, Heather Ayris Burnell has done a splendid job of gathering a Monster List of Picture Book Agents.
She has a few fabulous agent interviews on her blog, too. Most of the agents on her list are accepting queries at this time. Many also specialize in all children's books, not just picture books.
I hope you find the information useful. If so, please let Heather know how much you appreciate her hard work by visiting her blog.
