101 Things You Didn't Know About Publishing #6

Knock their Socks Off

If you want to get a picture book published, its going to have to be good.  In fact, not just good, it has to be OUTSTANDING!   

You must have original content, strong characters and a believable story.  If you’re thinking of writing a tale about a poor animal who can’t find a comfy place to sleep, or has lost its nest, or has lost its oink, baa or moo, then you might need a re-think! 

Picture books have progressed beyond all recognition since the days of Peter and Jane, so make sure your story is a real belter!
