Delighted to get an acceptance from Highlights last week while I was on vacation.  :running

It was for a puzzle I had subbed the last day of December.  An almost 6 months wait.

One of my favorites is The Nuts and Bolts Guide to Writing Picture Books by Linda Ashman (available on her website). As the title suggests, it's very specific and walks you through the process.

Sci Fi & Fantasy / Beta readers?
« Last post by hauntedsouls on Today at 11:57 AM »
Hello:

I seek a couple of beta readers for my story "The Lie".  It is slightly over 10K words and has already been professionally edited. But, I seek new eyes on this story because it just got rejected by Analog. Mind you, that is only the first submission. I will, of course, be happy to read material in return at any time.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Haile Evanson, seventeen, lives in a world without history. All events prior to her time-period were destroyed in The Purge. History began approximately 200 years ago with The Great Floods, where oceans and rivers ravaged the land and millions of people died or became stranded as climate change refugees.  One afternoon Haile finds an old book, The Diary of Anne Frank. Angered by the story, frustrated with peoples’ lack of knowledge, and driven with a passion to know the truth, Haile realizes everything in her world is a lie. The Lie was created to reset humanity on the ‘right path’, a path governed by The Science Council whose delegates rule over what is left of Earth’s remaining land masses and resources. When Haile speaks publicly about Anne Frank’s history and the Holocaust, she is deemed a traitor, a threat, and a liar by the world she thought she knew. Haile is faced with a life-altering choice; either denounce the book as a lie, or find a way to redeem the history humanity left behind.

Many thanks!
