Hi, I must know as specifically as possible estimates on submission, acceptance, and completion of print copies of a biography for ages 10 - 15 from a major American publishing house, including obtaining permission to use quotes from published sources and photographs whether previously published or not. I am extremely knowledgeable on the subject. This will not be either the first children's or adults' biography on the subject but I have tried to improve in various ways on the others. A draft was finished a couple of years ago but due to personal issues and lack of encouragement from the right quarters, I set it aside. An anniversary is coming up in a little over two years for which if I had the book published and if events are held for this anniversary (which they will be) I could attend said events and sell copies. My main question is, on what exact date should I panic? Is it already too late to submit a manuscript, obtain any necessary permissions, and have a completed print book in hand by two years from now? If it is not too late, how long do I have before I need to panic, give up, collapse and die? Any advice, except to self-publish, appreciated, thanks!
