need publisher, imagination will travel
October 17, 2009 4:49 AM   Subscribe

I've recently begun work on a children's book. It is inspired by my granddaughter. I was wondering if anyone had any information on how to get a children's book published? Suggested Publishers? Also, any other information pertaining to this process, would be appreciated. ***I realize that children's books are a dime a dozen...but mine just might be spectacular ;)***

You need to get an agent.

Of course they need to take you on as a client, and then they need to convince a publisher of your book's potential.
