Authors and illustrators in the spotlight

Writers’ personal stories never fail to fascinate and inspire me. I’m privileged to count many authors among my circle of friends and they were the first people I approached when I decided to start In Their Own Write with the idea of offering writers  a promotional opportunity. I’ve since been introduced to a growing number of wonderful new acquaintances who share my passion for books and writing and were willing to put themselves and their work in the spotlight. Because I’m a children’s author, many of the books that come across my path are illustrated and that expanded the site to also include the artists who illustrate them.

To go directly to the post you want to read, simply click on the author or illustrator’s name. I hope you enjoy their stories as much as I have.

One thought on “Authors and illustrators in the spotlight

  1. Good to see Annabel sharing her insights and advice. I’m old school and found it hard to send multiple submissions, but these days you would be waiting years for an answer unless you do double up. Anyway, so few publishers are receptive that it’s really better to get on and birth your own baby!
