Hello Readers!

Norm and I recently hosted a roundtable podcast discussion about the changes with Adobe and Creative Cloud.

Well, we were contacted by Adobe and it looks like we'll be getting the opportunity to interview one of their reps. We'll be asking the questions you've wanted answers to. So we are soliciting that our readers send us the questions they would like us to ask during this interview. We'll choose a selection of questions to use from your submissions. All questions submitted are not guaranteed to be asked during the interview.

Feel free to post your questions in the comments or send us an email. Also let us know if it's ok for us to use your name when we ask the question.

The interview will hopefully be the next podcast we post. The deadline for question submission is this coming Wednesday, June 26. 2013.

Thanks so much and we look forward to reviewing your submitted questions!

Be sure to subscribe to us on Itunes so that you can get access to the podcast early!

-Norm and Wilson

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to post up a little commission / collaboration opportunity here.  I have written a Dr Seuss inspired children's book, and I'm looking to hire an illustrator / designer to help me bring it to life for submission to publishers, or to self publish.

To be clear, this is a paying gig, so if you're interested, please feel free to contact me through Deviant Art, or email me at

Apologies if this seems "spammy".  I was simply hoping to find the right person to help!

Take care everyone!

I have a question. I am an aspiring children's writer (one day I hope to illustrate as well, but for now I'm just focusing on my writing). I was wondering if any of you know of any good agents that I could submit my early reader fantasy book to or any publishers who will accept a non-agented submission. Any tips and suggestions are also very much welcome.

For those who might not know, our admin for this group, Wilson Williams Jr. passed away suddenly this week.  He was a talented artist and a kind friend, and devoted to spreading the love of children's illustration.  He will be missed by many.

Oh my god. I didn't know that. That's why the art contributions expired. I hope he will rest in peace :heart:
