I took some time today to go through ALL my WORD DOCs and file folders filled with completed, partial and developing manuscripts...
THE RESULT: 20 COMPLETED Picture Book MSs
26 PARTIAL/DEVELOPING MSs
I am quite excited. The downside to that number is, when you approach an editor and/or agent, they would like to see your (sometimes top 3) strongest piece. Well, that is such a subjective call... it could potentially take me the next 400 years to circulate these one by one and wait the 4-6 months for a response.
Have you ever had an editor or agent sit down with you with ALL your ideas? Do you need to have at least ONE published book under your belt before anyone will devote that kind of time to your projects?
What are your thoughts and insights?
