Hi welcome to the first intentional use of keywords. Is this awkward the first time, or not? Well, actually, so far the only time I illustrated my own fiction was on a project which has never been published. The project was still good: I wrote some childrens stories for my son and painted some water colors to go with them.
Over at my Facebook page there are a few ‘real illustrators’ such as Duncan Long – if you are ever seeking someone to draw a book cover. Meanwhile, most of the fiction I write isn’t illustrated but nowadays at least some of it finds its way into publication.
This year look for Luney Writers, vol 1 and An Adventure in Indianapolis from Alethia publishing by this author….and remember, if its Jimmy Bodeilo its a juvenile fiction story by this author.
