Will you provide feedback for my children’s book manuscript? Will you blurb my book? Will you illustrate my story?

I am busy writing, illustrating and promoting my own books. It is how I make my living. Therefore, I pass on offers to read, illustrate or blurb unsolicited manuscripts–especially self-published books–so that I can spend time working on my own projects.

If you need feedback on your manuscript, I suggest joining a readers group or an organization, like the SCBWI, to help you learn your craft.

If a major publisher is releasing your book and you’d like me to see it, please contact my agent, Jodi Reamer, at Writer’s House. However, I don’t blurb often and generally only blurb books from people I know personally.

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
