Hello. I’ve enjoyed your book reviews and commentary with Scott Simon on NPR for years. Having read the disclaimer above regarding specific literary questions, I have one very general one. A favorite family dog passed away last fall, and I decided to honor his memory with a children’s story. I have a finished manuscript and three illustrations and I’m not sure what to do next. What advice would you offer to a prospective children’s book author? Thank you.

Daniel replies:

My advice to prospective children's book authors is to make use of the vast resources of the internet, where much more current and apposite advice than any I might have to offer is to be found in profusion.
