Thank you for sharing your work with me! I am currently looking to for AUTHOR-ILLUSTRATORS of picture books, middle grade projects and graphic novels. Illustrators of graphic novels and everything funny with heart. I am closed to author-only fiction picture books, but will review biography and nonfiction. I'm interested in Chapter Books and Mg, especially illustrated projects. If you are submitting as an author-illustrator, you must include a link to your online portfolio and/or dummy as a sample of your work. Please submit a complete letter with contact information.
