Submitting to Publishers

Places to submit my manuscripts

As well as my kids book, I am in the process of writing a series of short stories that I’d love to have published as an anthology, or a series in a magazine, as well some non-fiction manuscripts.

One of my Facebook friends posted links to Manuscript Monday and The Friday Pitch. It looks like publishers are changing the way they are doing things! I’m posting them here as much to keep track of the links as anything else!

While my kids book won’t be part of this as they aren’t accepting picture story books in this way, my other manuscripts are likely to fit their lists – I hope! With the Accidental WAHM stories, I need to choose one that will represent them all. With the various non-fiction manuscripts, I will need to find a chapter to submit, especially as they are based on blog posts, so are fairly short.

It may take some time to get my submissions up to scratch, but it’s a start… as well as that, if I get one of those manuscripts accepted, then I’m more likely to get my kids book published too…

Anyway, wish me luck.
