Tomorrow I'll be on another panel, here in Chicago. Here are the details:

Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators

Join us at 57th Street Books in Hyde Park for the next SCBWI South Side Chicago Network panel discussion. We're featuring four debut children's authors who will share their journey to publication, how they broke through and won over an editor, whether they used an agent or didn't, the role of revision, what it's like selling and marketing, and much more.
