Print Books

As more publishers continue to not accept unsolicited manuscripts, it has become harder for writers who wish to write for print books.

Charlesbridge does accept unsolicited manuscripts.

It isn’t easy when we are unknown to an editor; we must make it past the first-reader and that can be hard. But I did it in the past and my goal is to reenter the children’s market, both fiction and non-fiction.

Here is their 2017 catalog. This is a valuable resource for writers to learn to known what type books are published by this company.

The Cricket Group

It is getting harder and harder to submit to many magazines. The Cricket group magazines no longer accept hard copies and we have to submit via their website. If we have photographs, how do we submit? I haven’t been able, so far, to figure that out. I’ll keep researching this and let you know of any progress. I’m regularly published in children’s magazines, including photos that support my articles. I have been published in the “Bug Magazines” in the past. It is frustrating, being an author these days.

But in the meantime, if you want to submit, here is the website:

And I hope you are accepted!
