PubSubPackMo ended and I moved on to my next deadlines without a word. No fanfare - no nothing. It's just that there is so much to do this month, I had to keep going.

PubSubPackMo Summary: I completed my goal. All my research yielded 31 well matched possibilities to send my illustration samples to. I can't help but feel that I cheated a bit though. Not all of those possibilities are unique and separate from each other. Some are imprints with identical addresses. It was the same amount of research either way and I came out of the month with a better picture of where I fit in and what I want to accomplish. That's always a good thing.

Onward - April 1 I leave for my next SCBWI conference where I will receive two critiques and have my portfolio on view for Random House, Holt and Carus to peruse.
Stay tuned - I'll be posting my conference prep process and results...


  1. Wow, how great for you! Feb. went way too fast!

  2. It went so fast because of those missing days! I'm glad there are more days this month.

  3. Great illustration, Kristen! The editor who requested the full from "you know where" goes to a lot of SCBWI conferences (according to what I could google about her), so I checked out the one you are going to just in case. :-) They have some great people (names I even recognize) who come to their conferences. I'm sure you are going to have fun and learn a lot from the presenters.

  4. Thanks Angelia! The conferences are great. There's nothing like getting direct feedback from publishers and being able to ask questions to someone who knows the answers.
