Hooimi, good information. Thank you. I have a couple questions to pose. I realize as an unsolicited writer that many of the larger publishing companies won't of course accept my submissions at this point in time, however there are a few who don't have any prerequisites or previous publishing requirements. Should I try for the larger companies or get my feet wet in the smaller ones and go from there?
I write a variety of material-ie: songs, childrens, teens and adult stories as well as greeting card ideas, poetry and plays. I did get some local paper to publish a few of my poems,stories and artwork when I was a child and belonged to a kids writing and art club but that has been it for me. Grin. Other than that I have only tried to submit material when I was about 14 and then again in my early twenties but I haven't tried again since then.
I thought I was over being vulnerable but I can feel this hesitance and self consciousness rising up in me again.
Also, I am an artist and would love to illustrate my children's books or covers at least for my writings but don't know how I incorporate this into the letter, as I know many companies have their own artists lined up to do the designs for books they decide to publish. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thank you much! Lord bless, Janice
