I received a gift card for Christmas for Books A Million!
Here is my pile of books I came home with.
I am going to get serious and start going through the 2015 Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market, looking for publishers to send my manuscripts.
My only complaint - there are so many where you can't send in unagented manuscripts. So, I go through and put big X's where these publishers are listed.
I have finished reading CHOMP and I posted about it last Wednesday (before I had finished reading it). After reading, I consider it an upper MG book or maybe lower YA. On the downside, there are a few instances of bad language in the book. Call me old fashioned, but I don't like reading or writing bad language in books. There is also some violence, abuse and drinking (mostly by the father of the female character, Tuna). On the good side, the child characters in the book are likeable and responsible people.
Visit my blog on Wednesday. I'll be giving away CHOMP to one of my commenters.
Well, I've got to get to work searching through my writer's market book. I need to send out my manuscripts!
