Training #518 – Understanding Illustrations (and how to purchase them)

If you are writing books for children under the age of nine, you probably already know that illustrations are vital to your projects.

The right illustrations can enhance your wonderful stories and help you build a brand for your book business.

In this training, we look at illustration formatting. For example, how big is each illustration in relation to the size of the page as a whole?

Then we take a quick look at illustration styles. We take a look at the various mediums and how illustrations can be created.

We talk about how to navigate online marketplaces what to give your illustrator when you're working with them.

And finally, we cover what to review before you press the Pay Now button.

This training is not a DIY illustrations training. It is designed to help you navigate hiring an illustrator for your book.
