I am picture book writer who is niew to industry. My story is about crane who delivers babies to Ukraine but they all get sick. It is called SIBERIA,YOU ARE BACTERIA. I try to send story to editors. But they refuse to open. Why this?
I hear ya. I once wrote a story called The Bacteria Bear about my two-year-old's loved to death teddy (and no editor would open the envelope).
Children's book editors LOVE foreign writers, but I must say bacteria is a word favored by science and medical book editors.
Send it to them with samples. Just specify the sample names on the envelope. Or include them with your mss.
