  • I hear more agents are opening up to picture book writers. So my question is: What are they looking for in terms of picture books? Do they really want to see a potential series, or are several unrelated picture book manuscripts just as good?

    My second question is more general: When querying agents, how much do you allude to future completed manuscripts and works in progress? Is it best to focus on the project you are submitting, or is it a good idea to mention that you have others?  

  • I'm so glad to hear you'll be doing webinars, Deborah! But I have to be honest: the charge has to be pretty small for me to commit.

    As a children's author, I will have a different platform dynamic than nonfiction and adult fiction authors. I have signed up for free webinars to help me build my platform and most of them only sort of apply to me. Since they are free, though, I don't mind that I'm not using every tip. If I'm going to pay for one, I would need to believe that the webinar will help me specifically and that I'll walk away will many tools I can put into practice immediately.

    An example of a webinar that would be attractive would be one that had both general tips (that any author can use) as well as specific tips (that an unpublished picture book author could use).

  • I had a book about classic TV shows that was really cool. I wish I could remember the name of it. I think it was put out by either Timelife or Life Magazine.

    When I was looking for the title online, I found this website: http://www.tvparty.com/bookstore.html maybe it will have something there.

  • Deborah, I may be interested in the webinar. It depends on (a) cost; and how in-depth into the social media it goes, i.e., beginner vs advanced? where vs what to post? proven results/results statistics?

  • I am looking for books, blogs or articles about classic television shows. What are some of your favorites? I would appreciate any info about writers in this area. 

  • Who would be up for a webinar on building your platform through social media? I would like to plan one for July. There will be a small charge. You can let me know at Deborah@WAENet.com. You can also send me questions you would like to see covered. I want all our WAENet members to be up to speed with the new platforms and how they can even the playing field for you. 

  • The Conspiracies of Dreams depicts the loving relationship between an Egyptian Military Intelligence Agent and a beautiful Israeli actress during the 1956 Suez-Sinai War. They meet through a Christian who wants to follow Jesus's footsteps on the Via Dolorosa. Their poignant relationship is threatened by all the nations for whom the Suez is a vital waterway, and by cultures who have been taught to hate each other for 3,000 years. The book is available on amazon.com, Barnes&Noble.com and iBooks.com. I am also in the process of adapting it into a film script, but now I know why most books(not all) are better than movies.
  • In a quiet moment pruning my list of bookmarks - keeping this one and will be back soon. Get caught up in other groups, etc and losing track of my memberships!

  • Have a pilot TV script that we are looking for Representation for. If anyone has an LEGITIMATE contacts in LA area, please drop me a line. It's for the book "See Jack Die" which I wrote a few years ago, self-published, and serendipitously found a Producer at CBS who wanted to get the TV show developed from the book!

  • Great idea, Jen! Also, just FYI...if you are a writer who happens to love travel, have you heard about the new program with Amtrak for writers? It gets you free train rides! Check it out: Amtrak Writers Residency Program
