HOW TO BE A CHILDREN’S AUTHOR WHEN THINGS JUST AREN’T HAPPENING
Today’s guest was, until recently, a frustrated author who’d achieved success early in her writing career with a terrific picture book, but then couldn’t get that next contract. Until she learned a few golden rules of being a children’s author.
I thought this could help those aspiring authors that have been at it for a while and are not having any luck, or who might have one or two pieces published but having trouble getting something new out there.
Being a children’s author is a journey. It takes time to find your process, your voice, and who you are as a writer, even if you have a few things published already.
Today’s guest turned things around for herself by persevering and continuing to learn her craft. And, you can too.
