Submitting a Children's Book ManuscriptHand in children's book manuscript
You must review the submit policy for the box in general and for the agent and publisher you find appropriate for the request before you begin the request . You have two joint directives in the policy you are proposing. Even if your case is, for whatever reasons, so extraordinary that you think that these rules do not hold true, it is a sure bet that those who consider your inquiry will find these breaches to be both nasty and non-professional and are opposed to your input from the outset.
Everything is clear and concise about how to find an illuminator for your storybook. If you are submitting an MS for a storybook, do not send any illustration unless you are the artist. Publishing houses of children's literature know how to open an MS. Don't call me on the telephone.
2 reasons - 1) The telephone is not good for us because we can't pick the time. Also, the telephone is really uncomfortable - I always felt secured against the walls when someone I don't expect to speak to is on the ring. 2 ) The telephone is not good for you. When you ask us for the state on the telephone and we didn't like it, we have to refuse it right there, on the telephone with you.
Maybe we have also "maybe" thought about your projects, but now that you have made us speak to you on the telephone, we think against. And the other thing is that taking open-call is too much of a contact between the agent and the editor, some of them are true lunatics (see Moonrat's full article for more).
I am kind of upset that your response to listening to "publishers prefer and I' ll do it anyways. "Well, if it was just a penchant ("We also like that your book is about vampires!), I could see that, but we're discussing an industrially accepted one. You don't sound as if you are very unfamiliar with industrial norms, policies and workflows.
It is strongly recommended that you familiarize yourself with them before submitting them. You have a book in which you have spilled your guts and your heart, a book you are proud of, a book that is awesome - you don't want to confuse the questioning, because that's just to learn how these things are done and then do them.
I advise you to find out what agents' and editors' weblogs are, what works and what does not. that seems to piss off the feds, you're really trying to stop it. In your case, however, I would be particularly interested in children's publishers who have their own problems.
I' ve nothing special to suggest, but I'm sure you can find great things there.
