Although I usually only post a small part of the question posed to Glenn, I decided to go ahead and post the entire question this week because it is one that was originally posted on the FW message boards. This week's topic deals with not only breaking in to the Children's Stories market, but also what publishers look for in an author.
Q: Okay so I love to write Christian romance but there is not a big demand for it. Besides I'm not very good at it-- well at least I don't think so.
However I do feel that I may have a knack for Children's stories. Not older ones but younger ones. I love kids and the stories I write for my classes are usually well received from kids and adults alike.
The problem is, I really need to earn some cash with my writing and I don't know where to start. Also I am not an artist and in a children's book you really need pictures.
I'm thinking maybe I can write articles or stories in children's magazines and handouts too.
… Can you help me?
