Picture Books (PB) / Agents asking for two PB manuscripts - how to query?
« Last post by alia-mk on June 14, 2022, 10:53 AM »
Hi folks! So I'm currently querying and noticed that some agents will ask for two PB manuscripts. I'm wondering how to do query letters for this - should it just be like two query letters combined into one? Should I pitch one and then another? Thanks in advance for any advice!

Hi, I live in North Carolina and I never received a rejection notification. I assumed that since they needed more submissions for NC, that mine did not make it. I am reluctant to submit stories in future contests since I did not hear back. Also, I do not want to jeopardize my chance of winning (however slight) by submitting my story somewhere else. Please let me know if there is an update and/or a winner in North Carolina? Thank you

Hi Christine,

Unfortunately, the Blueboard staff has nothing to do with the contest. I know winners were announced for some states in a prior Insight, but they don't seem to have updated. Considering how long the first set took, I suspect they aren't done yet, but you'd have to email headquarters to find out for sure.

Good luck to you and everyone still waiting.

All quiet here. I too was hoping the Insight would give a little update . . .

Any news from Maine people?
I know a few of you have been waiting.

Thanks very much. I appreciate your input!

There are few publishers that do take work done by teams, but it is rare, and I've never heard of an agent doing it. I'm sorry this has happened to you. I'd research every agent carefully and decide if they might be open to this. Also, perhaps your advisor will be open to it. If they are reputable, you can say you took their advice in your letter.

Has anyone gotten any updates?! Was hoping to see one in the SCBWI Insight today but didn't, in case I missed something!
