There have been some interesting picture book resources posted in the last week or so.
The first one comes from Ripple Grove Press who posted about the importance of titles. Titles can be something which are often overlooked but can make or break a story, especially as a picture book story. To read about picture book titles, go here.
If you’d like to submit to Ripple Grove Press, here are the guidelines.
Note: Ripple Grove Press is only taking picture book submissions and they do not want religious or holiday themed stories.
The second blog post comes from the Children’s Book Academy Blogateers. This looks like a great blog to follow if you write for children and includes the Newbery Honor Book Award winner, Audrey Couloumbis. Audrey posted a great article about scenes in picture book. This is not something I’ve seen written about for picture books and is extremely important in any type of story. You can read that article here.
And yes, I know Valentine’s Day is past, but this was a very fun article about love notes found in used books.
