Hello ! I could not possibly narrow my list of favorite picture books down any further. I apologize for nothing.

Hey ! Chiming in with my tips, which certainly are not revolutionary, but: join an SCBWI critique group, read as many PBs as possible, keep writing new stories, let your work sit in a time marinade, be patient and kind, and pay attention to what kids talk about/like.

I’m proud of myself for not participating in . I’m learning to give my ms time to breath and grow so I can polish. I’m learning patience and it is HARD.

Congrats to the finalist in !!! And, it's OK if you didn't get in! I've entered the past 3 years, never gotten in, but a PB I entered last year is being published this fall. Remember these parties are a great way to meet new writers, not the only way to get a book deal.

My manuscripts are perfect when I first write them. Then I send them to critiquers and all of a sudden they are ABSOLUTE EYE-WATERING CRAP. So I revise until they're decent. And somehow they turn into a festering pile of DOO-DOO again. This goes on AD INFINITUM. :)

Allow myself time to mope. Ask myself what about this particular rej. is bothering me. When ready, go back to/make my list of goals w/ plan of action. Bury myself in the work even harder. As an actor-author, it's essential to have a system in place for dealing w/ rej.

has many more winners than just the talented finalists. We all got to learn, improve and make connections - like the new online critique group a few of us just formed. Those with experience in this, how do you handle 8 people critiquing each other's work?

Here’s the deal. There are loads of mediocre picture books out there. I don’t want to write one of those. Rejection is a gift to my craft, a way of pushing me to be better for my little readers. So, in a perverse way, I say “thank you” for the rejection! Back to work!

Congrats to all selected for ! For those of you who did not get selected, your time may be right around the corner. In fact, I'm one of those who did not get selected in 2017. But my chance came a few months later & now THIS BOOK IS SPINELESS sits on shelves! Keep trying!

My mc is a pragmatic unicorn named Leonard, and I love him. I picture him as a cross between Dwight from The Office and Chidi on The Good Place. He would totally hang a banner at your party saying, "It is your birthday." 😂
