If you have a wonderful site for writers that is not listed - please email me and let me know. I am always on the lookout for helpful tools and sites.

First please let me share that I was very, very, very, very lucky.
My manuscript was at the right place, at the right time
and my editor was just in the mood for what my story had to say.
And she was able to convince the editorial staff at Sasquatch
who then sent it to some other folks who determined that
The Giant Cabbage was indeed salable and might possibly make
a return on their investment........THEN she contacted me.
Oh, Did I mention that I was very, VERY lucky?

I am extremely grateful to the many picture book folks in cyberspace!
They took me in and shared their 'tips & secrets'. The usual suggestion
was something to the effect of "make sure you share this with other writers"

so here you are:
