Return to Sender

Alright, I did a round of promotional postcard mailings to various publishers and magazines and such.  I got the addresses from sources that were supposed to be accurate.  Places like the SCBWI Market Survey and Writer’s and Illustrator’s Market.  Then I’d usually double-check their submissions guidelines online to make sure I’m sending the right stuff to the right address.

Still, a few came back return to sender.  So, I’m posting the bad addresses here so you’ll all know, if you’re interested.

Oh, I should mention that I’m submitting art samples as an illustrator. Not writing samples as a writer. The submissions policies are usually a little different for artists than for writers.

Bad Address Good Address (as far as I know)
Jenifer Bacheller
Art Director
Sleeping Bear Press
310 North Main Street
Suite 300
Chelsea, MI 48118
I don’t know.

I couldn’t find the right address on the website, so I sent an email asking about it to their general inquiry email. Hopefully I’ll hear back.

Art Director
Linnet Books
Shoe String Press
2 Linsley Street
North Haven, CT 06473
I don’t know.

The address I used matched the one on the website. So… *shrug*

I sent an email asking about it (to an address listed on the site) and it bounced back.  So…  That’s not good.

Sharon Barnett
Frog Street Press
308 East Truck St.
Crandall, TX 75114
Sharon Barnett
800 Industrial Blvd.
Suite 100
Grapevine, TX 76051
George Luder
Maval Publishing
3900 East 6th Ave.
Denver, CO 80206
I don’t know.

It matches the address on the website.

I sent an email asking about it and it bounced.

Out of the Boxx
P.O. Box 2158
Daly City, CA 94017-2158
I don’t know.

There are several addresses on the website, but I’m not sure which would go to the art director. I did find an email for the Artistic Director (John Kovalic) so I send him an email asking about it, but the email bounced.
