Hello, I've written a children's book and am hoping to get it published. Are there children's book writers/editors here? I'd love some feedback and suggestions for what to do next. (I'm in Australia if that makes any difference.)

Hello Elizabby! Welcome to FM!

We have a few members in Australia, but I don't remember who. I hope someone can step forward with local publishing info for you.

We also have several children's-book writers. Check out the Children and Young Adult board, and feel free to start a discussion.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

I'm one of those Aussies. You will find a few of us around. Most of us met up in Chat in the 'quiet' times - when the American's are still sleeping and the Europeans are just going to bed. Mind you being writers there are a good number whose sleep cycle is shot to pieces so you'll find chatters come from all over the world at any time of the day.

Come join us some time.

Welcome, don't forget to ask if you can't find something or want to know something.

And chat is a good place to visit too.

Welcome to FM Writers, Elizabby!

Yes, we do have several children's writers here, and have a genre board dedicated to it. The boards were just reset, so by all means start up a thread or join in the discussion.
