Children's book update

I got my first two rejection letters this week. One coming from Kansas and the other coming from Maine, but both post marked on the same day and arriving at the same time.

To be honest I was surprised to even see anything this soon I wasn't even upset they were rejections. Most publishers take several months to respond (at least that's what their websites say) but I got my first replies in just about one month.

I've sent manuscripts to five publisher so far and hope to find at least 10 more to send my children's book to. I enjoyed getting the rejection letters because, to me, it's all part of the process. I'm going to keep trying and keep hoping for the best, but not expecting anything. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.
