It’s not the easiest of times to get a book published. The entire publishing industry just suffered its worst year in decades. The economic downturm may be great for libraries, but booksellers, publishers and agents have all cut back. And to make matters worse, most agents aren’t anxious to take on new projects by untested authors. Nevertheless, The Christmas Ladder is determined. (We grew up in the advertising business, so rejection is something we’re used to.) Like anyone who ventures into this world, we expect to be rejected more than once. A good ratio is 12 denials to every one acceptance. (Twenty seven publishers rejected Dr. Seuss.) But we remain optimistic given recent interviews and conversations with bookstore owners about the shortage of good stories out there. If you’re a Mom with kids four to eight and want to give the story a tryout on them, send us an email request. Thanks.
