My story, Benjamin's Bookshelf has been accepted for publication with MeeGenius!  I'm happy to join the other BBers who have stories published with MeeGenius!  I really like they way they present their books.

Happy writing,

Sue

Congratulations Sue!!! I've read a few of the stories and do love how beautifully they've been illustrated.

Great news! I have one under contract with them, too - just waiting to hear who they get to illustrate it. I haven't found it's a really speedy process, but that could be because someone left the company mid-way through my editing.

Thank you for your congrats!  I am very excited!

Jan: Congrats on your MeeGenius book!  I am looking forward to reading it!  My book was in the editing phase for about a month and I received the contract 8/16.  I was told it would be 3-4 months until publication.  Got an email yesterday that my book is now in production!  Can't wait to see the illustrations!  They are very nice to work with and I am very happy with the process. 

Mirka: I do have a Benjamin - we also call him Benji :-)  He is 13 now and I wrote this story when he was 3!  Nice to know it can now be shared with other children through MeeGenius!

Hi!

Congratulations! We have a growing group of MeeGenius authors here on the Blue Boards. I sometimes get questions about this company, and several authors have told me that they are very hesitant to work with MeeGenius. I certainly haven't gotten a pile of money from them, but I've found them good to work with and quick to answer questions. I think the founders of the company came from a very different background than the usual children's book publishers. Several of us who have MeeGenius books are trying a bit of marketing and hope to increase sales of our titles. We'll see . . .

Hi, Shelia and Sue,

I'm excited to join the group as well. I just recently signed a contract for one of my stories with them. I hope to join you next year on the promotion side.

Back to Sue's celebration!
