I made a query, for one of the manuscripts I submitted to the Institute of Children’s Literature course on Writing Books for Children, to a publisher. Now I have to wait to see if they may be interested. That is the hard part. It takes sooo long and most do not give any response back if they don’t want to use your material, especially the ones who still require “snail mail” queries and submissions. Those who do it through email will sometimes respond. I have been rejected several times that way. I am still confident that one day I will get a positive reply, but, with all I have been hearing lately, self-publishing may be the best route. If all writers start doing that, the publishing houses will be going out of business before too long. Does anyone think that will happen? I would not like to see that, but Chandler Bolt wants to put them out of commission. He runs Self-Publishing School, which I would enroll in if I had the finances to afford it.
