Today, I sent a status inquiry letter to one of the publishers who currently have my picture book manuscript. I only send status inquiry letters if the publisher's website indicates it's okay to do so after a certain amount of time.
At the post office I asked how long it would take for the letter to get to its destination. The answer was "About a week." I don't know if I can wait that long, I'm too excited. I'm guessing I shouldn't expect a response for at least 2 weeks. *sigh*
The last time I sent a status inquiry letter to a publisher my manuscipt had made it to the final round for publishing. Unfortunatly, it was not chosen. I'm hoping this time the results are different.
I'll keep you posted. :)

That's how many days I have to wait until I can mail a status query to a publisher regarding my children's book manuscript. Very Exciting! I'm happy about this, not only because it means I have not received a rejection letter yet, but I'm excite about the book and I feel it is a good fit for this particular publisher. I hope they feel the same.
I will periodically update you on my progress of the status query. If you have any tips or helpful links on writing a status query letter please let me know.
