‘Get into the culture of children’s writers, otherwise you will flounder as there’s so much to learn in this profession. Join your local writing group. Create your own critique group. Do some classes. Belong to writers’ organisations. Get online to Creative Kids Tales and children’s book blogs. Follow your favourite authors and illustrators’.
‘Publication is a very rugged road, but if you have friends and colleagues on the journey, you’ll have great buddies to celebrate, commiserate, but continue the march forward’.
