Today’s author needs to stay abreast of the rapidly changing world of publishing, particularly as the storybook app and ebook market grows. That’s one reason why I created a template for authors and illustrators to use to develop storybook app proposals. This page lists other great resources for more information.

Authors also need to know how to use social media platforms to connect with writers, readers, and as a way to market our work. Below are my own posts on apps and ebooks as well as some of my favorite blogs on the subject.
