This page is for use by those attending the CCBC's Business Of Writing seminar. Please do not post this URL anywhere publicly. I realize that the URL is at the bottom of most of my slides; I'm fine with posting a few slides publicly, but please don't specifically point people to this page -- thanks so much!
For those looking for info about the basics of breaking into writing and illustrating for young people, I STRONGLY recommend you checking out Harold Underdown's Purple Crayon site. I also have a "Getting Into The Business" section in my FAQ.
