Hi Guys,

I'm seeking 20 families with kiddos age 2-8 for a product trial of my Christmas book, candy craft, and treasure hunt. This fun Christmas tradition lasts one evening. Adults complete a 5-10min survey when done.  Sign up here: https://forms.gle/bLrmbwtogn3MWuKn8   

Thank you, ;]

Hi Marjorie,

You can try https://www.budsies.com/.
They are a SharkTank company that has been pretty successful, and they have no minimum order.
I used a different company about 8 years ago, but they required a minimum order of 1000 units. 

Good luck!
Chris

Picture Books (PB) / Re: Formatting verse for picture book
« Last post by Debbie Vilardi on Yesterday at 06:36 PM »
Verse can be left justified. Verses are used as paragraphs. Do not use capital letters unless grammar calls for it. So:

Twinkle, twinkle little star,
how I wonder what you are
up above a world so high
like a diamond in the sky.

Often the line spacing is 1.5 or single spaced,  instead of double, with and extra line break between verses.

I would be interested in a crit group. I have completed my first manuscript. How does this work?

Picture Books (PB) / Formatting verse for picture book
« Last post by d-dzien on October 15, 2021, 08:33 PM »
Hi all, first time board user so apologies in advance if this topic has been covered.  I am formatting a picture book in verse.  I have found that I should be indenting each line with one tab.  My question is, if the line carries over into the next line , should it be indented further?  Should it stay in line with the rest of the verse?  Or maybe should it not be indented?  Any help is appreciated!!!
