Bitter Sweet News

Yesterday I found out that a manuscript for a children's book that I sent to a publisher had been accepted. Then I realized that I can not afford the author's investment required for a new author. Pretty cool getting accepted. Pretty crappy not being able to do it. Oh well. Life goes on.

Wait, what the hell is an author's investment?

Is it a vanity press?

Get an agent.

Awesome and that sucks. My advice would be to e-mail Eric Anderson (Alena and her favorite thing)maybe he would have some contacts or some beneficial info.

Great to hear your local farmers market is open. The markets up here have been open since mid-April.

Love the curds and spicy cheese bread.

That's really cool Matt! Charles told me to tell you that he has a friend who publishes children's books. Maybe she could help?
