    Thanks ladies. Lots of good information for newbies and not so newbies still hopeful. I’ve written at least two dozen picture books on everything from a story about deaf siblings and how they communicate to a cookbook with dinosaurs. It’s a wide and diverse range. Out of that I believe that about 4 or 5 are worthy. I’m going to use your information and keep trying. I’ll submit the worthy and work on the others some more. Thanks again.
