Picture Books and the Process of Getting Published

We all love picture books. We love reading them and even writing them. However, the process of getting a book published is a little more tricky.

Here to help us today is the Creative Director of Larrikin House Books, Mary Anastasiou. Mary discusses the process of being published, tips on submissions and making sure your story is the best it can be. 


Today’s Special Guest is Picture Book Author, Jeanette Stampone. Woo-hooo!!

Jeanette Stampone intervie

Today’s guest grew up in a spooky three-hundred-year-old English house where her brothers and sisters taunted her with stories of ghosts and goblins. She now lives in Western Australia and has just released her very own story. A most magnificent picture book titled, Shadow and the Girl.

To tell us all about it and share her amazing journey with us, ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for Jeanette Stampone.
