JNG Cartoons by Jaenet Newell Guggenheim

This is a brand new book of cartoons that Jaenet drew in 1994.
Horses, birds, butterflies, and a myriad of other characters

and the weather.

We love all artists and writers of children's books very much. However, we have received so many subsmissions that we can barely get in the door of our office. At the moment, we cannot accept any new submissions. Please do not send us any of your fabulous work at this time, but do continue to visit this web site for updates about this situation.

Our guidelines: We really only consider manuscripts with Southwestern settings and themes written and illustrated by people who live in the Southwest. If you feel you must send us something to read, please do the following:

Put a word count on the first page.

Send your manuscript with an SASE big enough to accomodate your manuscript if you want it back. If you do not send a large enough SASE, we will not return it.

Or send a #10 SASE if you want to receive a letter from us without the return of your manuscript.

It would be helpful to indicate the following: age of child you are writing for and where you think you could sell your book. Remember, school teachers and librarians love to have you come and read but they probably will want you to leave the book for free.
