I have written three books so far since my twins were born. I know I am a novice, but I am sure that someone would/should look at them. I have sent one to Albert Whitman----rejected, and one to Limitless Dare to Dream---no response in months. Does anyone have suggestions. One book is written about a child with DS geared towards young school agers, another is about a survivng twin----geared toward school agers, the other is a collection of poems written from my NICU/Preemie/loss experience. I hope it is ok to post this here......as I am not published!!!! I just need help finding a publisher!!!! Thanks.

Hi, I am Debbie. I am not a parent here but a person who has Down syndrome. I am a writer of sorts and so I thought I might could add some advise. Have you thought of asking someone on the Down syndrome web site's on the Internet? You could e-mail the National Down syndrome Congress and see if they might could help you. Then there is the one in New York City. I think it is the National Down Sydnrome Society. I am sorry I don't have the web sites memorized. I don't think you will have problems finding it if you type those names in on Yahoo, Goggles or Microsoft Explorer. Then there is Woodbine publishing. I think that is the name. If I ever finish my book the way I like it, I may do the same.
you might try to get in touch with Janis who used to post often with us here. Her daughter Cariana passed away this spring from leukemia and I think she has finished a book she has been writing...perhaps you all could share resources....if you email me I will try and connect you .
