is to focus on this for now, since it may be quite a while before my picture book (a different project) is ready to submit with an illustration plan. So I have identified a few potential agents & will work on getting a query together soon. 6 years ago
of nonsense lullabies that have been languishing in a remote folder-within-a-folder on my hard drive for years now. During our celebration of my dad’s 80th this past weekend, my sister brought out copies & passed them around for family members to sing. I had forgotten how silly & clever they were!
Back home, I dug out the electronic files because we’re hosting a baby shower this weekend & we decided it would be fun to divide up into groups to serenade the soon-to-be-born baby with a few of these songs. I had completely forgotten about some of these lullabies. It was inspiring to read them again, & sing them in my head, & remember how they were almost accepted by a NY publisher way back when, & how my son used to pray every night that they would be published.
For now I don’t have time to work on the illustrations for my other children’s book, but I can surely take a couple of hours to identify some potential agents & send out queries for this one. May it languish no longer! 6 years ago
