Picture Books (PB) / Re: What If You Have More than One Manuscript?
« Last post by Debbie Vilardi on October 17, 2021, 06:15 PM »
You open with the explanation of why you have chosen them and the title and word count of each manuscript. Then have a paragraph for each book with its pitch. Keep these brief because the letter should still be one page. Next comes your bio as in any query and a closing.

What is the query letter format for a multiple manuscript submission to an agent/editor/publisher? A few agents I am querying for PBs request mulitple manuscripts, not just one.

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!

Picture Books (PB) / Re: Formatting verse for picture book
« Last post by Debbie Vilardi on October 16, 2021, 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?
