*DEAR ABBY & ELVIRA BECAME ONE WITH THE LIGHT*
*HAUNTINGLY YOURS, LADY LYNDY*

Each of the Four Sacred Seasons: Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumnal Equinox & Winter Solstice, Dear Lady Lyndy will present for your viewing pleasure answers to your questions received through blogging comments &/or email.

The Summer Solstice celebration has come & gone so quickly. The beautiful full Moon Goddess has blessed the earth with a wonderful summer to behold. Lady Lyndy's seasonal Summer Solstice Topic is truly informative: PUBLISHER REJECTIONS TO TIPS ON HOW TO PROTECT YOUR SELF-PUBLISHED BOOK.

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
I've gotten rejection letters from some big publishing houses should I quit sending in my manuscript for my children's book to other publishing houses?
GRETA FROM BERLIN WISCONSIN

DEAR GRETA FROM BERLIN WISCONSIN,
NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

THIS IS THE STORY BEHIND THE REJECTION(S) OF ONE OF MOST FAMOUS AUTHOR'S OF CHILDREN'S BOOKS IN THE WORLD...

When the manuscript of Harry Potter & the Philosopher’s Stone was finished, early in the New Year of 1996, Rowling visited Edinburgh Central Library to look up the Writers’ & Artists’ Year Book in search of a literary agent. Her first approach had been unsuccessful: a brief rejection letter. She then posted a sample of three chapters & a covering letter to Christopher Little Literary Agents, based in Fulham. It was here that a young reader, Bryony Evans, read the first chapter & laughed. Evans passed the chapters to Fleur Howle, a freelance reader, who agreed with her assessment & together they persuaded Little to sign up Rowling. A few days later Rowling received a letter asking for the remainder of the manuscript. The agency sent Rowling’s 200-page script to 12 publishers, all of whom, to their eternal regret, turned down the book. Harper Collins showed interest but was too slow in formulating a bid and so the first book by the most lucrative writer in the world was picked up by Bloomsbury for an advance of £1,500.

When Barry Cunningham, head of children’s fiction at Bloomsbury, invited Rowling to lunch in London, he praised her book but told her to be prepared as there was no financial reward in children’s books. Rowling did not care. To hold a hardback copy in her hand was reward enough. Yet prior to publication she would prove him wrong.

"The purest most unalloyed joy was when I finally knew it was going to be a book, a real book you could see sitting on the shelf of a bookshop" ~JK Rowling

I agree with JK Rowling...

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
Is it a good idea to get a US copyright for my book idea or the whole book?
BARRY

DEAR BARRY,
If you have not written your book yet you could submit your book idea to the US Copyright office. You must protect your written work (this includes art work & music) before big house publishing or self-publishing. Submit your work(s) to:
http://www.copyright.gov/

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
I'm thinking of self-publishing. I've been told I need to get an ISBN number. What is an ISBN number, do I need one for my book & how do I get one?
TONI SPRINGFIELD ILLINOIS

DEAR TONI SPRINGFIELD ILLINOIS,
ISBN 'The International Standard Book Number' is a unique commercial book identifier barcode, which allows book sellers to order the book from distribution for resale.

If you want to make any real money on selling your book & obtaining a wider audience you'll need the ISBN number for greater distribution resale.

To obtain an ISBN number:
http://www.isbn.org/standards/home/index.asp

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
How do I get my book in my local library or any library for that matter?
STACY DONNALY

DEAR STACY DONNALY,
After your book has been published, submit your book to the Library Of Congress for the catalog control number:
http://www.loc.gov/index.html

The Library Of Congress indubitable insures your legacy until the earth implodes into a black hole.

****************************

DEAR LADY LYNDY,
Can't wait for your BLACK CAT FANTASY ART WORK BOOK. Any updates?
JK AGAIN...

DEAR JK AGAIN...,
Thank you again for asking about my art book endeavors. The wonderful artist we hired to be the books page layout designer had personal matters to deal with. So the book has been delayed a bit until we can do her assignments ourselves. Hope your kitties are bringing you joy & lots of magick.

MY BLACK CAT FANTASY ART BOOK IS SLOWLY BUT SURELY GETTING COMPLETED & ALL MY WEBSITES, MYSPACES & BLOGS WILL BE THE FIRST TO KNOW WHEN THE BOOK IS PUBLISHED & READY FOR SALE!
