Here's an update:
Received a rejection letter from Peachtree Publishers. Good news is I don't have to wait until August for their response as they responded quickly. Also the submission to Albert Whitman & Company has expired, so I'm considering it a no as well. I think I'm going to find my own illustrator and self-publish. "Ten Little Gator Eggs" is publishable and I'm not finding it a home nor an agent.
My second article, "Marriage and the Moon: Both have phases" has been accepted at the familyshare.com website. I'll let you know when it's published. "Don't get stuck on the side of the road" has been submitted and is waiting approval. I'm almost done and ready to submit "Prepare for your marriage, not your wedding."
Let's write a story
My research indicates the character I've chosen isn't considered an alien from outer space, but I think I can still swing it. There's no proof it's not either. I'm working up it's character profile and will have it here soon.
How are you doing with your story? Keep at it and it'll fall in line on the paper or in your computer.
Stealing paragraphs and chapters with the book "The Drylands" by Mary Rosenblum. Will review here as soon as I'm done. Not much reading time, but this book is really hard to put down.
Happy reading, writing, submitting, researching and getting published.
