Should I keep calling for producers to accept to read my script.
Hi, another question to help me out, I’ve called at least 9 production companies trying to get them to read my script or accept my idea. Is this normal and Should I keep calling more, or is this a problem meaning my idea isn’t that good? Two, any tips on how to get them to accept, or if there will be…
I once heard that Dr. Seuss sent his first book to over 20 publishing companies before anyone bought his first book.Marc Cherry, the Creator and Executive producer of Desperate housewives sent his script to 7 networks before ABC bought it; it is now one of the most popular well known shows in the country and has won awards and has received many nominations.What I’m saying is don’t give up and GOOD LUCK!By the way, anyone dedicated enough to send a script to 9 production companies has something worth reading so I’m almost positive your script is not the problem.Don’t give up!

I wrote a children’s story,I have been told it’s pretty good. How do I get a professional evaluation.
I don’t want to waste my time on scammers.
In all honesty, I must tell you that the children’s book market is the most difficult out there. I have this from a reliable source at Harper Collins. 40% of kids books today are celebs like Madonna etc. Another 40% are successful, tried and true children’s authors. Another 15 – 20% are reprints of kids classics – Dr Seuss etc. Which doesnt leave much room for new authors. And lately, writers of adult fiction have started entering the kids market – taking away from that 5% for new authors. And the major publishers have a tremendous backlog of children’s books awaiting publishing. As a result, most agents arent even bothering to read children’s books – they cant sell them – no money in it for them.Get yourself a copy of Writers Market 2007 and look for small publishers and agents still reading kids books. There arent many. And to be honest, “pretty good” isnt good enough to get into that tiny percentage – it has to be exceptional. A close friend of mine just did it. Made it to #1 on the NY Times kids list and his book is currently being made into an animated feature. But he had important backing – namely the NY Yankees.Give it a shot, but I warn you – expect a lot of rejections. Pax – C
How much royalty and advance would a first time children’s book author expect to get.
How much royalty and advance would a first time children’s book author expect to get? I understand it varies with each publisher but what is a ball park figure one would expect to get? Thank you.
Most likely – absolutely nothing.The children’s market is the hardest market to get into. Not long ago, I sat down with an exec from Harper Collins to discuss children’s books. The news was grim. 40% of the market is celebs publishing books – Madonna, Jamie Lee Curtis, Billy Joel etc. Another 40% is established children’s authors like Eric Carle etc. 15 – 20% is reprints of children’s classics like Dr Seuss and Curious George. And recently, many adult authors have started publishing for children – further cutting into that 5 – 10% window of opportunity for first time authors. In addition, many of the major children’s publishers have a huge backup of childrens’ books they have purchased and have under contract that will be released over time.In other words, the market is glutted. Most agents wont read childrens’ books anymore because there is little chance of sales and therefore no money in it for them.So basically, even if you could sell a book, it would probably be to a small publisher and they generally pay zero upfront – only royalties on sales.Get a copy of Writers Market 2007 and you will see exactly what I mean. The major publishers deal only with agents and agents wont read children’s. You may find one or two small publishers who might take it on royalties only.Trust me – you wont get rich with kids books. Take a tour of your local bookstore and you will confirm exactly whose books are on the shelves and selling. They arent unknown authors. Sad, but true.I have a close friend whose first children’s book recently went to #1 on the NYTimes Childrens Bestseller list. However his book was exceptional and he had a very big backer – namely the NY Yankees. It’s currently being animated as a feature fim. However he had an exceptional book and major players backing him. Without such heavyweights behind you, there isnt much chance. Pax – C
What are some good things to sell online.
Im trying to put some stuff on craigslist to sell to make some quick cash. I need to make about $70-$100 more, so i can buy an ipod touch.I dont have many things to sell though. I know video games and electronics always sell good, but besides 3 XBOX 360 games I have that I can sell, and like 7 old PS2 games…
Books don’t really sell that well.Depending on your location, you can also try kijiji.com which is a website just like craigslist but it is advertised on ebay and maybe ever created by them?I have sold electronics on ebay, games, movies,But I have boughten many different things off there before, so it is possible books could sell. Try it out, list one item at a time and see how it goes. You could also wait until ebay has one of there free listing days
what year did Theodor Seuss (dr.seuss) die.
Later yearsAfter the war, Geisel and his wife moved to La Jolla, California. Returning to children’s books, he wrote many works, including such favorites as If I Ran the Zoo, (1950), Horton Hears a Who! (1955), If I Ran the Circus (1956), The Cat in the Hat (1957), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1957) and Green Eggs and Ham (1960). Although he received numerous awards throughout his career, Geisel won neither the Caldecott Medal nor the Newbery Medal. Three of his titles from this period were, however, chosen as Caldecott runners-up (now referred to as Caldecott Honor books): McElligot’s Pool (1947), Bartholomew and the Oobleck (1949), and If I Ran the Zoo (1950). Dr Seuss also wrote the musical and fantasy film The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T, which was released in 1953. The movie was a critical and financial failure, and Geisel never attempted another feature film. During the 1950s, he also published a number of illustrated short stories, mostly in Redbook Magazine. Some of these were later collected (in volumes such as The Sneetches and Other Stories or reworked into independent books (If I Ran the Zoo). A number have never been reprinted since their original appearances.In May 1954, Life magazine published a report on illiteracy among school children, which concluded that children were not learning to read because their books were boring. Accordingly, William Ellsworth Spaulding, the director of the education division at Houghton Mifflin who later became its Chairman, compiled a list of 348 words he felt were important for first-graders to recognize and asked Geisel to cut the list to 250 words and write a book using only those words. Spaulding challenged Geisel to “bring back a book children can’t put down.”  Nine months later, Geisel, using 236 of the words given to him, completed The Cat in the Hat. It was described as a tour de force by some reviewers[who?]—it retained the drawing style, verse rhythms, and all the imaginative power of Geisel’s earlier works, but because of its simplified vocabulary, it could be read by beginning readers. The Cat in the Hat and subsequent books written for young children achieved significant international success and they remain very popular today. In 2009 Green Eggs and Ham sold 540,366 copies, The Cat in the Hat sold 452,258 copies, and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish (1960) sold 409,068 copies—outselling the majority of newly published children’s books.Geisel went on to write many other children’s books, both in his new simplified-vocabulary manner (sold as Beginner Books) and in his older, more elaborate style. The Beginner Books were not easy for Geisel and reportedly took him months to complete.On October 23, 1967, suffering from a long struggle with illnesses including cancer—as well as emotional pain over her husband’s affair with Audrey Stone Dimond—Geisel’s wife, Helen Palmer Geisel, committed suicide. Geisel married Dimond on June 21, 1968. Though he devoted most of his life to writing children’s books, Geisel had no children of his own. He would say, when asked about this, “You have ’em; I’ll entertain ’emDied, September 24, 1991(1991-09-24) (aged 87) … Mulberry Street in Springfield, made famous in Dr. Seuss’ first children’s book

With millions of books in print, and nearly all of his 50-plus titles still available for sale, Dr. Seuss was, up until his untimely death in 1991, probably the most prolific living writer behind Barbara Cartland.

how many dr.seuss books are there.
BEWARE! The Wikipedia list used by several answerers is incomplete! Another page of wikipedia lists 57, see:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Bo… Six of these were sold by the same author under a different name, so (indeed) 51 are 100% Dr. Seuss.I found another web site, http://www.seuss.org/seuss/seuss.list.ht… which lists 63; some titles differ only marginally, so it could also be 59; but remember that some of these are bundled stories. Sold out editions are listed on another part of this site, and I found 9 more titles, for a grand total of 72.Some “official” Seuss-sites quote 44, which happens to be the number of titles edited by Random House.Ät least 26 titles sold more than 750,000 copies in the US alone by 2001. At least two (“Green eggs and ham” and “The cat in the hat”) sold over 7.2 million worldwide; conservatively estimating, Dr. Seuss must have sold over 40 million copies of his books, most likely more than 50 million, possibly more than 75 million.Including translations, http://www.catinthehat.org/history.htm claims a total of over 200 million copies.Dr. Seuss wrote some books very meticulously for the starting reader: The cat in the hat requires a vocabulary of 220; Green eggs and ham requires just 50.
