Find an illustrator for your children’s book | Children’s book illustrations | Kickstarter campaign

Today we are starting our journey with Rob, the author of M is for Money. He is a math and personal finance educator and he saw a need in the children’s book market for an ABCs of money book. But he never wrote or published a children’s book before.

  • We started with the search for an illustrator. Here is what we learned along the way.
  • What was the genesis of this book? Where did you get the idea for it? Why were you the one to write it?
  • The book was written, then the search for the illustrator was on. How did you go about starting that search? What resources did you use for your search?
  • What did you learn from your experience vetting illustrators?
  • Hard to bring up the illustrator search without also talking about the Kickstarter, so how did you first get the idea that you would want to do the Kickstarter? Had you ever done one before?
