Can I send a self-published book to a mainstream publisher?
I’ve found an illustrator to work on a book I’ve written. She’s a wonderful illustrator and our working relationship is very good. We’ve agreed an amount of money for her illustrations – most of which she’s already completed – which, of course, I will pay her.
My question is:
Can I have self-publish a book which is illustrated by an illustrator and send the same book, without the illustrations, to mainstream publishers?
