After reading many "How To" books on becoming a published children's author, I decided to follow their advice and create a blog to help myself network. I have written two children's picture books that I am currently attempting to get published. My adventure officially begins today, as I am sending my first manuscript to a publishing house. I am nervous, excited and trying desperately not to get my hopes up. I know, logically, that I will have to send the manuscript to easily a hundred publishing houses before generating any interest. This has been a dream of mine for some time, however, so I will hold onto that hope. Wish me luck!
