101 Things You Didn't Know About Publishing #5

Patience is a Virtue

Publishing a picture book is a LOOOOONNNNNGGG process, especially if you are just starting out.

Supermarket Zoo is due out on 1 July this year. That’s two years after it was snapped up by Simon & Schuster in May 2008 and three years from the time I first sat down to write the story.

And you won’t see a paperback until this time next year, May 2011!! So if you want to get a picture book published, you’d better start now!!
