Jennifer Rees Q&A

Q: What's the market for picture books?

A: Like Kathy Dawson, Jennifer said picture books are tough to get published in today's climate.

Q: Do you like rhyme?

A: She says don't be sing-songy and don't force rhyme. If it's done well, she's for it.

Q: What if what you're doing is too similar to what an editor has already worked on. Where's that line?

A: If it's a very similar plot, she would not look at it. If it's similar generally (like distopian, for example) but a different twist on that than what the are doing, that would be considered.

Note: Jennifer doesn't take unsolicited manuscripts. She time frame on submissions is at least 8 months.
