Title: Your First PB Sale?
Post by: KatieC on September 23, 2011, 03:28 PM
I feel a little silly asking this  :waiting  (like I should already know the answer or something!).  But here goes...

How did your first PB sale come about?  As in, what did you do, from your side, that led to the acceptance?

Did you target specific editors/houses?  Did you start with the top publishing houses and work your way down?  How long did it take you from the beginning or writing to the "end" of submitting?  Did you query agents?  Did you make contact before your submission?

Anything you can think of, really.  I am eagerly awaiting any answers, and thanks a bunch  :hearts
