Hi, Jessica!

I noticed with my last few responses from Ladybug that the turnaround time was getting longer and longer. I think they're just a little behind.

As for the status changes, there doesn't seem to me to be any rhyme or reason behind them. I've had submissions never change from "received," and other times I've had submissions go right to "in-progess" the moment I send them.

Because of a systems issue, registrations are temporarily suspended as of July 9, 2020. We hope to have that part of the Blueboard working correctly soon and get caught up with pending registrations by the end of July, so if you have not heard from us by then, please try again!
I've taken some pictures of my latest illustration (colored pencil on black paper) and I'd love some advice on how to make it look the best it can possibly be. I know about making the file 300 dpi, bow can I boost the colors without losing the detail, or flattening it too much? (Sorry I had to scale down the artwork to fit it here, the original size is much better).

Working on GN for 4-8 with David Monroy, TALL TALES OF THE CIRCUS.  Want to take a peek at the first two illustrations?
I have a submission for Spider from last October that I still haven't heard back about (it's been "in-progress" for awhile), and I'm not at all worried about it.  Be patient!

Paranormal is fantasy as David said. Some ghost stories might also fall under horror, but I bet you'd know if it were one of those.

Usually ghost stories go under Paranormal (a subset of fantasy as a general heading, but not what most people think when they hear the word).  Have you found a comparative story yet?  If you can find a story like your own it might help you identify it.

Hello, I have written a MG novel that is a ghost story and I wonder if that would go into the "Sci Fi & Fantasy" category. Otherwise, I'm not sure where it goes. Although it has a mystery element, it's not exactly that. Any thoughts? Thank you.
Thanks for posting, Avery!  :flowers2
