"If you think you're too small to make a difference, try sleeping in a room with a mosquito. - African Proverb" I am a published illustrator ( books: "Saffy" and ""One Little Bug"). While I have writing input in the books I work on, the real reason I got published was because of my illustrations, which a publisher noticed at an art show. This just goes to show how important it is to get your work out there - so that people can see it and LOVE it! A site like protagonize is GREAT for writing and I don't want to take anyone away from using this fantastic site, but if you've ever contemplated doing a picture book or comic, then I'd like to invite to check out everytales.com, a web site that I have just launched. By sharing your ILLUSTRATED story on everytales you will have the opportunity to be reviewed by publisher SIMPLY READ BOOKS who is on the panel of judges for best tale competition. And don't worry, you keep the rights to whatever you submit. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions about it, meanwhile, happy writing!
