self publishing picture books
I do not know how to publish books, help? I have a very short time to publish!?

So in fact I wrote a book several years ago, edited thorougly, and were seeking an agent for over a year and a half now. More than 6 months. Ago, I started looking through self-publishing, and less than 5 meters. I read that there are nine self-published made the best seller. And now I have had many letters of rejection, and self-image editing, but I have a problem with time. Since I have just entered high school, and I think my book would have the best chance to sell if it was published by someone my age, and I have no time to wait, because then the chances of profitability and sales go down. What do you recommend? As in, I dismissed w / literary agents and there really are not that many books YA-I think I made contact with most of them.

I would recommend DO NOT self-publishing the book. There is little or no money in it. And you do not buy credit with literary agents or publishers in the future (They do not consider the experiment). People say they have self-pubishing success, but there is no way to know for sure POD because they work and receive fees directly. I understand your dillemma and your reasoning, but speaking from experience, publishers and literary agents would not consider your project more marketable, because you are young, aged fourteen. In fact, quite the opposite. Your age would make the editors off. Bestselling young adult fiction is written by adults. Age is positively correlated with experience. You can send directly to a publisher, but few accept unsolicited manuscripts of those days. That means you need an agent. Look around online for an agent literary, find one that accepts your type of manuscript, then send them a query. This should include a letter summarizing your project, consider how you that is different from other books of this kind, the credentials that you as an author, and the first chapter or two of your work. You do not even need to have the finished part to send a query. Here is an example of a site agent: http://www.writers.net/agents.html.
