  • What a great way for self-publishers to showcase their work! I am very excited to submit our book, Chase-Man: How My Brother Became a Super Hero.

    I have a book that would be appropriate for this contest: (Burston the Bad, A Story for Childhood) which may be seen along with a description on Amazon.com under “Kathy Alba.” The only problem is that it has about 6,000 words–a paragraph of text on the left side of the pages with a full-page picture to accompany it on the right. Your limit appears to be 1,600 words. This breaks my heart because young readers have told me it’s one of their favorite books. You can’t make an exception, right?

      Hi, Kathy:

      Hi, Kathy! thank you for your question. I don’t make exceptions. I’ll consider making changes to the rules the following year. 6,000 words, IMHO, puts the book in a different sub-genre of children’s books. But, you are not the first to ask me to consider increasing the word count limit. I’ll consider it again for the 2018 contest. If you have another book you’ve published that meets the guidelines, I hope you’ll consider entering it. Unlike other contests, I don’t care what year you published the book. I’m just looking for great indie children’s books to recommend. Should you have any other questions, please contact me at GittleSubmissions@gmail.com.
