Kim's Magical Journey Into the World of Children's Picture Books

Finding bliss

on August 23, 2012

Boy, do I feel lucky.  After years of just dreaming about it, I finally have the opportunity to do what I’ve always wanted to do– write and illustrate kids’ books.  So here I sit in my office/studio, finishing up a sketch I drew in pencil yesterday… wrapping up text for a picture book… researching the next book… researching the industry… reading, reading, reading.  Like I said– danged lucky.  (No bad language here– I still have a small child at home.)

In my quest to get better– to be prepared and know as much as possible about the illustrious children’s book market– occasionally I come across some really interesting (sometimes fascinating) things along the way.  My goal here is to share them with others who, like me, have a true passion for Kid Lit.

So hopefully you’ll come along for the ride.  Or at least join me for a few trips.  Happy Writing and Reading!
