Over the weekend, I went to Darcy Pattison's Picture Book Retreat. It was more than I ever anticipated. She gave superb suggestions on how to make your picture book stand out. From coming up with a focusing statement to new ideas and making dummies to marketing.
It was extremely challenging, but it made me aware that each little word counts.
Lots of great info. I came home with great feedback and lots of new friends. If you get a chance to take it, I highly recommend this workshop.
