Writer’s Bloq has a meeting with a big publisher coming up in just a few weeks to pitch our collection of children’s books. We’re seeking stories that make children think, giggle, and wonder, books that make adults feel like children. Have a question about the opportunity? Email us. Have a book you’d like to publish? Just send it our way! Have a friend who writes children’s books? Let them know. We promise to pitch you well, and soon you might just be reading your own book to your kids or nieces or puppies to put them down to bed.
Let’s get you discovered like that very hungry caterpillar. Submit!
This past year, Writer’s Bloq made good on its promise to help talented writers get discovered. From successful publications to literary tours, Writer’s Bloq has found its calling in using digital tools to successfully shine the spotlight on writing and writers that were once overlooked. In April, we made the full-time jump to digital publishing, becoming the first step in an author’s path to literary glory. We’re thrilled and honored to announce that manuscripts seeking Writer’s Bloq representation have poured in since April and thus, we have an exciting queue of books coming this fall and winter.
But we’ve also had a lot of questions, and we think all authors considering Writer’s Bloq representation might want access to the answers. As a result, we’re using this post as an open forum for you authors who might be interested but not entirely convinced just yet. Below are a few details about our book accelerator process. If we didn’t answer your question, please ask away in the comments below. Read The Rest
