Contains information on a wide range of topics with the emphasis on giving the aspiring writer and illustrator knowledge of the children's market in all areas, to help them pursue their careers in this increasingly competitive area. No other guide to writing and illustrating for children does this.
Now in its third edition, the Children's Writers' and Artists' Yearbook has quickly established itself as the premier book aimed at helping all prospective children's writers get their work published. To say 'premier' is a little of an understatement, because there is no other book like it.
The cover statement "Between the covers of this book is everything you need to know to get published" is somewhat of an understatement too - it does give you everything you do need to get published except talent -THAT, you need to buy elsewhere!
Like its older brother, this book is set to become a classic in its own right and will be filling the shelves of all budding children's writers - myself included.
The Children's Writers' and Artists' Yearbook covers everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING you will ever need to know: finding an agent, finding a publishers, self publishing, marketting, copyright laws, income tax and other financial obligations, illustrations and much, much more.
If you think you have it in you to write the next best-selling children's book, go out and read this book first. It is utterly necessary.
