Moving Forward

This week I am in PA visiting family and meeting the illustrator of two of my books. I have done some more research on self publishing and am excited about making some contacts in the near future. Too soon to really feel comfortable, but there is always hope in possibilities!

After receiving a personal rejection letter from a publisher this past week, I experienced the normal reaction of "What exactly do they want?" This has been the million dollar question, of course, for writers throughout time wishing to be published. People sometimes mistakenly think that once you are published, it gets easier. For me, nothing could be further from the truth! Although teachers and kids love my books and ideas, publishers come to the edge, but don't jump in. So I am beginning to serioulsy consider the self publishing route, but with a little twist. At the same time, however, today I received an invitation to the New England Reading Association 'Evening with Authors' event in September. So somebody out there knows about me! Perhaps, it will be a combination of methods which keeps me writing and sharing with kids. But however it happens, I'm not ready to give up just yet!
