Children's Writers and Illustrators Market

Over the years, one of my most consistent January purchases has been the new edition of The Children's Writers and Illustrators Market, edited by Alice Pope. It is a wonderful resource for anyone writing books for kids. It includes articles about how to get published and information on hundreds of publishers and what they are looking for. In addition, there are profiles of new and established authors and illustrators.

One of our local authors, Fiona Bayrock, writes articles for this publication, and she kindly interviewed me and two other local writers, Melanie Jackson and Pam Withers, about our experiences in writing series for kids. If you'd like to read the text of this interview, you can pick up the January 2010 edition of the book (see page 117) or read it here on Pam's website. (I had planned to post it on my website, but Pam is clearly much more organized than I!) The title of the article is Writing Series: Three Authors Tell All.

A big thank you to Fiona for including me, and hello to Pam and Melanie, excellent writers all! To check out any of their websites, please click on their names above.
