Several years ago, I was a young librarian with a love of stories; one day I wrote a picture book. It was original, funny, and fun. I had spent several years reading kids stories and knew what they wanted in a good picture book. I went to workshops and conferences, and learned the publishing business. And then I tried to sell it and was in for a rude awakening: picture books are a ridiculously hard sell. I sent it to every picture book publisher I could find, and each one sent the impersonal rejection that writers dread. And so I filed it away, and didna€™t think that much of it. Then publishing changed. Suddenly, authors could become publishers, and I began to feel hopeful about the book again. There were still two problems with the book that I faced: 1.
