On Wednesday, I am teaching a two-session class at the Schack Art Center, WRITING THE PICTURE BOOK.
This fall, I taught this class to two packed audiences at the Seattle Public Library branches.
One of the questions which we discuss is…but how many pages in a picture book story? And how does an ebook picture book story differ in page count from a traditionally print published picture book?
Darcy Pattison is one of the best resources I know for current information about picture book writing, and she answers this very question on her blog:
She also has a great post about Indie Publishing here. Be sure to read what she says about the Amazon Program, Kindle Kids Creator–this is the picture book self-publishing program at Amazon.
If you’d like to learn more from Darcy about writing picture books, she has a great ebook about writing the picture book which you can purchase and download here.
If you are interested in writing picture books and/or other children’s stories, I’d highly encourage signing up to follow her blog.
