My path was a bit unusual, because I worked in school publishing for many years, so my first illustrated books were textbooks and easy readers.

Are you interested in publishing a book for kids? There is a lot of great, free, helpful information out there. I recommend the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), starting here: http://www.scbwi.org/online-resources....

After that, try the Blueboard: http://www.scbwi.org/boards/ where you can see every imaginable question answered and topic discussed, or ask your own.

Good luck!(less)
