She is a children's author for Bloomsbury and a young belletrist for Nosy Crow. I had always liked photo albums and often purchased them for myself, but also got them as a gift from my relatives and my mates. It was always ingenious to be able to create my own book, but unfortunately I was definitely not an illuminator (my hive-humans = hurt sausages).
Once I reach page 16 and see that many of my illustrated albums have their own author and artist, my whole lives would never be the same again! I was overjoyed when Becky let me know that Bloomsbury wanted to release my first work.
Though my first young book was not quite right for my editor Bloomsbury back then, my agency sent it to Nosy Crow, who accidentally was looking for something like'Baby Aliens Got My Teacher' and Kate Wilson immediately made me a 3-book-quot... awesome!
It really worked out well that I have my picture book with one publishing house and my literature with another publishing house. It was also very interesting to work with a large and a small publishing house. Strangely enough, both of them were released on the same date - January 9, 2014! Hopefully my experiences will help to show up-and-coming writers that just because something isn't quite right for one publishing house doesn't necessarily mean it isn't right for another.
An editor may already have something similar on his mailing lists, looking for something completely different at this point, or it's just about getting the right people to love your book as much as you do. I advise everyone who wants to publish to do as much reading, writing and research as possible.
So I suggest that you know what kids actually do and what works well. I would advise you to try to get as many as possible of those that have been published for kids, especially in the area you are interested in (it's the best time ever!). It will help you understanding what works and why, and make your own text more powerful.
That was the next book I bought just after the completion of the book my fiance gave me and with which it all began. I really did help me figure out what to do next, and it's still a book I use today. After all, it may seem apparent (and maybe even a little cheesy), but I think you should be writing for yourself.
I' ve been reading this a lot, but I didn't quite comprehend what it was until I laughed when I wrote my first young work.
