In addition, you’ve had it critiqued. You’ve revised it. You’ve made sure it’s as good as it’s gonna get this side of an editor’s desk.
What do you do now? Here is a breakdown for you…
1. Put your ms in an envelope.
2. Address the envelope to the desired (and well targeted) publisher or agent.
3. Walk out the mailbox or drive to the post office.
4. Put it in the mail.
6. Repeat as many times as necessary.
You have to SUBMIT your stuff, folks. Get it out there. Don’t keep it in a drawer to gather dust. Why are you hiding your light under a bushel?
And if your excuse is, “I don’t have time to get to the post office” or “I don’t like snail mail”…then email your manuscripts, queries and proposals to the editors and agents who accept email subs.

DISCLAIMER: I do NOT know these agents personally. I am in NO way affiliated with them. They are just some agents who, according to agentquery.com, accept email queries AND children’s stories. Do your homework and make sure your story is a good fit before submitting.
