You commented once that the standards for adult books are much lower than for children’s books. You are absolutely right. In evidence, I present my own experience: Two years of trying to break into picture books, with nary a sale, although I receive very friendly rejection letters. My first attempt at writing for adults sold like a flash, with flash being defined as less than a year.

Love your work.

I didn't say that. I said that I respect children as readers more than I do adults. Congratulations on getting published!
