Does anyone know how the market is for rhyming pb's? Has anyone had good success with selling one lately?

Hi Plume - 5 of my 6 sold PBs rhyme. It's a matter of why a story needs to rhyme and if the rhyme is done well.

I don't think it's a market that fluctuates greatly--it's just that beginners are warned to keep away from rhyme because so many of them produce bad rhyme.

If it's what you do, and you do it brilliantly, then carry on.
