I recently submitted a story, the first of what I hope to be a book.
With past submissions I got more response. I was hoping that would be the case with this as well. Is there anything I can do to encourage that? More certificates? perhaps?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

michaelcahill: I'm on my cell phone at the moment so _ could only take a glance. I can tell you that the length is going to scare many potential reveiwers away. Remeber that they can review a poem for the the same reward. I would break this up into smaller bites. That will get you a more detailed review as well. For a first chapter it's your best shot at getting a following. How about a thousand words and try to get it on the front page. That's your best bet with a first look.
Delightfully told in rhyming verse, this story features a young hero (Sophie) who encourages a self-conscious king to show himself even though he is different. Sensitive and silly, this vibrantly illustrated tale will show readers that when we embrace diversity and difference, we open up a world of friendship and possibilities.
