When you have a great idea for a picture book but you have no idea where to start, I’m the one you should have a talk with! After writing, illustrating and publishing five picture books, I am now also working with other authors. I understand each individual expertise that comes with publishing a book, I can guide you through the entire process.
I love reading a new story for a picture book, getting to know all the characters and letting them come to life in their own distinctive way. It’s a great process where I often find myself chuckling behind my drawing board.
Do you really need a publisher if you want to publish a book? It is often the easiest way but also difficult to find a publisher who wants to publish your book. You can also choose to self-publish instead. This can be done via platforms such as Amazon. The advantage is that you are in control of everything. The disadvantage is, you have to do everything yourself, find an editor, a designer, an illustrator and do your own marketing. More information about the process can be found here: picture book illustrator .
