I decided after Princess Polliwog & the Swing Thief had been published, that I loved the idea of writing kids books. But I was really unsure of the price point I have to sell Polliwog at. So I decided to do some research on illustrators from Fiverr. I found someone who seemed really energetic about illustrating my story.
Now, my stomach is churning. Did I do the right thing? This story is special for me, but it is for a very select audience. I also wanted to get a book that I can sell at a price point I'm comfortable charging.
My illustrator is from Sri Lanka and I'm very excited. From his profile illustrations, his people are realistic looking and fun. I can only hope my story can be the same!
Stay tuned for progress reports!
