It's been brought to my attention that whatever I seem to post here falls upon deaf ears, but that's never stopped me before. If there is anybody who is reading this, leave a comment saying hi. I'd love to hear from you! :)
Back to what I came here for... I believe I may have developed a 'novel' idea (sorry!) for a children's picture book. It would remain a 'fantasy' theme, but one that many children could relate to. You see, being a teacher I have a good understanding of what goes on inside the minds of children (or at least, I think I do).
I know it's diverting from what I have always been planning, but it's exciting nonetheless. Whether or not anything will ever come of it, I cannot say. One significant hurdle I am facing is the fact that I am no illustrator... at all! For now, I am unsure as to how I would leap this one. I'm not sure if I even can. But I know there is a story there waiting to be told. I guess another, slightly shorter hurdle would be how I would go about getting it published. I am well aware picture books are almost never accepted by large publishing houses. Having it independently published through Lightning Source may be an option, I guess, but that in itself poses more problems. I don't envision picture books being great sellers as an ebook, leaving paperback and hardback as the most reasonable medium to tell this tale...
Anybody out there with experience in writing a picture book and having it illustrated, I would love to hear from you. You may be able to answer my unending list of questions. Please leave a comment :)
Bye for now!
