Well, with one big breath, I sent out 70 promotional postcards for my illustrations. They were sent, mostly east coast, to publishing houses, agencies, and magazines.I prepared my heart as I have heard that the first few mailings come up thin with good news. You gotta start somewhere though. On Monday, my response cards, or SASE as they call it, started coming back. I opened with anticipation and to be honest a little fear. Out of about 20 so far, the responses have mostly been " not interested. " I have had a few "we will keep you on file" 's and a handful of wrong addresses. I go home every day now to find responses lying by my mail slot. If just one of the 70 come back with some promise, then I have succeeded in a Big way. I will keep you posted as to how the rest goes.
