Exciting News

Friday I received an email from an editor for a publishing company about my picture book manuscript, Melba Sue and the Cactus Kid. They are interested in it, and have asked me to make some revisions to see if it can become a good fit for their company. I was very excited to hear this, of course. but particularly pleased since this was the first editor to see this manuscript at all, since the other house I sent it to was not taking materials from non-agented authors. (Alas, incorrect information from a writer's market let me astray, but I don't grieve the lost postage.)

So now it is time for revisions to see what will come. No matter what comes, it is very encouraging, and I'm happy to see my favorite manuscript making some headway in the picture book market.

Who knows. If all goes well, maybe Melba Sue will bake me a pie.


  1. I will say it again and again. CONGRATULATIONS! I couldn't be happier for you! :)

  2. Thanks you guys. The truth is, I wouldn't have made it this far without such an awesome writing critique group to help me, so thank you to you both (and Clarissa and Briana)!!!! We're all going to make it to publication!

  3. Amen to that! :)

    Did I mention how proud I am of you Beth? I really am beaming for you! :) WoooHoooo!
