Hi Community,

I have a short Children's story that I have been offered two Hybrid contracts for, by Austin & Macauley and also Olympia publishers.

The problem is I do not have an illustrator and I do not have the funds available for one either.

I'm not sure but an Agent seems the right way to go? -any advice is appreciated.

Kindest regards & thank you

This is a very useful piece of knowledge. I just completed a student paper on this subject and obtained an A+ grade from my professor. I found a writing service that I used thanks to the review https://www.topwritersreview.com/reviews/bid4papers/ that I read. Working with them was a pleasure.

Hi Harry, I think it refers to a publisher that charges the writer for their services at the first instance, as well as selling their book. They don't wholeheartedly take you on' or so it feels.
