Winner! Manuscript Appraisal Competition


And the winner is . . .

Tom Blackfields Travelling Chest by Belinda Lyons-Lee

Tom Blackfield’s Travelling Chest is a fantasy for middle readers. I’ll be contacting Belinda shortly to arrange passing over his appraisal, which I hope is useful in redrafting his already engaging manuscript. More details soon . . .

In the meantime, congratulations! And thank you to everyone who participated in the competition. There were some excellent submissions and I wish you all the best of luck on your publishing journey.

Due to the high number of picture book submissions, I’d thought I’d offer my thoughts on getting a picture book published, so for those of you who missed out but who have subscribed to the site, there is a little something in tonight’s newsletter for you, which I hope will help. Just click on the link in the newsletter to download my advice and tips for Children’s Picture Book publishing. Just a reminder: you will have to have confirmed your subscription in order to receive my newsletter. If you haven’t received a confirmation email, perhaps check out your spam folder. It’s okay – you can click it – it’s just me.
