Ten Picture Book Mistakes (Post 136)
Ten Picture Book Mistakes (and how you can fix them) (2012), is one of the how-to books I have available as paperback, epub or PDF. This one, like the others, sprang from years of writing notes, edits and proofing for clients of Affordable Manuscript Assessments. After the first decade I had a pretty good handle on the errors writers producing picture book texts were most likely to make. Fixing these errors or not making them in the first place is no certain way of getting work published, but not fixing them is a fairly certain way of getting it rejected. This text, along with most of the others, is incorporated in the giant how-to Everything You Want to Know About Writing and More, Much More, but this one is short, specific and a lot cheaper.
Ten Picture Book Mistakes is available in paperback via THIS LINK.
The PDF version is available directly from me for $5.00

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service, leave me a message.
