Picture Book Special!


Have a picture book you’ve been kicking around, but you’re procrastinating on getting the manuscript polished and off?

In order to celebrate the renewed energy I always feel as the air turns cooler and fall kicks in (and also to pay for the Springsteen on Broadway ticket I bought!), I am offering a Picture Book Special for the next two weeks, through September 18th. 


You provide: A picture book manuscript of no more than 1800 words.  Manuscript must be submitted by November 1st, 2017.

You get: A full two rounds on the manuscript. This includes: an editorial report on Round One of your manuscript, as well as line edits and margin notes. That’s followed by a 25-minute phone or Skype call, that you’re welcome to record, to make sure all your questions are answered and you’re ready to revise. If I have thoughts about the market for your work, or agents who might bite, I will share those.  If I see any red flags that will bother an acquiring editor, I’ll mention those, too.  

Round Two includes more line edits, margin notes and another report, and if you have additional questions, we can speak or email to follow up.

N.B. Sign up by Sept 18, send me the first round ms. by November 1st. 


Nothing like back-to-school time

Cost and timeline: $295, payable by Paypal or check.  Turnaround time is ten days from receipt of your manuscript and payment, though I’m often faster. You have as long as you need to revise between rounds.
