When I sent in the PB during this "open call," I mentioned in my cover letter that this other MG non fiction manuscript was still available. The editor asked to see it! :explode :yay

I'll let everyone know if anything comes of it.... :crossedfingers X six million!

Oh, Verla, what a silver lining!!! Add my    :crossedfingers   X six million to yours!!!

Just heard from Millbrook today. They rejected the PB story I sent them, but asked to see a MG ms that they had purchased many, many years ago and never published. I had waited five years for that manuscript to be published only to be told mere weeks before it went to print that Lerner had just bought Millbrook and was cancelling publication of the manuscript.

I went to Chautauqua with the Highlights Foundation and loved it. They put so much into their events.

Just checked with my agent and she reports nothing yet but  we actually submitted in the very last day so I’m sure we will be near the end to hear.

Crossed fingers for all that are still waiting.

I haven't heard back yet, but I'm guessing that that's because I submitted so late. At this point, I think it's probably going to be a "no."

Good luck to anyone else who's still in the running, though!

The same here.

I think no news is probably good news. :hanginthere

I submitted on April 17, so if she's still going in the order they arrived and she stopped at the 15th before, I would have been pretty early in the pile. IDK if she's going straight through, or maybe saving the acceptances for last.

So for the rest of you, no news is good news!  :goodluck

Nope, Carrots, not a peep. I think poor Ms. Hinz must be running behind still. I submitted on April 30th, so mine is probably near the bottom of the pile.

I wonder if the people who were rejected are going to get a mass Blind Carbon Copy email or something, and that's why I haven't heard: because all the rejectees will hear at once when she's done.

Also, in full disclosure, the reason I stopped by the Blueboard this fine morning was to ask this exact question! Thanks for asking it for me! Still wishing for good luck for Blueboarders.
