  1. Hello Helen, After ten years, I'm ready to send you another manuscript for your review. My books, which include "Don't Pollute Our Island" published in 2011, each include an underlying message about preserving our great planet and tackling the problem of pollution and global warming. Here in Minnesota we all feel the effects of global warming with the blistering days we spend plummeted with temperatures well below zero for months on end. We are the "Gopher state" for a reason, so I hope you will enjoy my book "Cuddles and The Magic Gopher" that's on it's way by mail. Thank you, Collin St. George email: emeraldsails@yahoo.com

  2. Books should be designed a sure path keeping in mind the end goal to speak to distributers. A book that joins articles with short stories, for instance, could experience some resistance from distributed organizations. They need something that effortlessly fits into a class that purchasers would as of now be acquainted with. It's the general business standard that numerous Book publishers in India are searching for work that will offer and effortlessly fit into a case at the same time.

  13. Hello, I was wondering what the submission guidelines are for submitting a book dummy? I've written and illustrated a book and would love both the manuscript and illustrations to be considered together. However, I wasn't sure if this should be mailed to the Editor or the Art Director. please let me know. Thank you so much.
