Hi fellow writers *shy wave*
So…what genres do you tend to write in for children’s books?
And have you ever published a kid’s book before?

Hey there! I haven’t written MG in quite a while as I got sucked into the New Adult movement, but I’m planning (tentatively) a new MG book
What are your favourite kids books?

Ooooh cool this is def. my area.
@abigail-rebekah Hey! I haven’t published anything yet (and am not sure that that’s in the foreseeable future), but I love writing kids’ books and sharing them with some of my younger friends. 🙂 Mostly I write fantasy and sci-fi, but have also written some contemporary fiction.
What about you?

Hi again 🙂
Oh cool…have you decided what it will be about?
Ah…my favourite kids’ books are probably Ranger’s Apprentice (I don’t know if they are classified as kids’ books, or if that’s more picture books?)…I’m not sure of many others – I don’t tend to read lots of kids’ picture books nowadays…I’m more mature now 😉 Jk…I actually still do lol
What about you?
That sounds real cool xD
I love writing kids’ books too, and sharing them with my family and friends.
Those genres sound cool – I love writing historical fiction…I’m actually hoping to get my first kids’ picture book published this year…emphasis on hoping to lol 😉
It’s set during World War I and II.
Do you have any favourite kids’ books?

Neat! I love reading historical fiction. That’s so awesome that you’re hoping to publish your book! Have you ever published anything before?
Let’s see… My favorite kids’ series I’ve ever read would probably be Mysterious Benedict Society. My sisters and I are re-reading through it right now and I still enjoy it so much. XD
I’ve also enjoyed The Wingfeather Saga, The Candymakers, Story Thieves… and I’m sure there’s more. Even though I’m only a year away from being an adult I don’t think I’ll ever grow out of kids’ books… XD

@abigail-rebekah Hi! I write contemporary and historical children’s fiction 😀 I’ve had a few short stories and poems published but I’m still working on my novel. Your book sounds really neat!

Cool…I love historical fiction xD
Oh wow…that’s so cool 🙂
Whereabouts have you had them published?
Aww thanks…what is your novel about, if you don’t mind me asking? 🙂

Aw thanks…no, I haven’t actually properly published before. Well, I have had my story published for a missionary organization, which they translated into tok pisin, (PNG language) which is cool, but apart from that, if I do get my story published, it will be my first-time xD
How about you?
Cool…I haven’t heard of those books, apart from The Wingfeather Saga, which I haven’t actually read 🙂
Lol…kids’ books are great…especially the adventurous ones 😉

@abigail-rebekah I’ve been published in a few small e-magazines, so nothing too official 🙂 I’m going into some more serious freelancing this year. My novel is about a young girl during the early Christian persecutions in Rome, around 306 AD.
Are you illustrating, as well as writing, your children’s picture book?

Cool xD *thumbs up*
Your novel sounds really interesting too, btw 🙂
No sadly, I don’t possess the natural gift of illustrating lol 😉
I’m trying to find an illustrator for my story at the moment, but it can be hard finding someone who can draw the style I’m imagining in my head xD
Do you illustrate your books?
~ Laugh. Drink Coffee. Smile. And Write ~February 3, 2020 at 3:22 am #105040
No 🙁 I don’t possess that talent either. I have just enough artistic skill to make something that looks decent every once in a while, but no consistency lol and my people always look . . . unsettling.
What kind of style are you looking for? My younger sister is actually a brilliant artist. If you’re looking for something that sounds like what she does, I can ask her if she’d be interested 😀

Oooh cool…well, my aim is to have illustrations that tell the story before you read the words. I’ve included a couple of pictures from a kids’ book that I love the illustrations for, and are the style I’m wanting. That would be really cool, thanks 🙂

@abigail-rebekah My sister whipped these up really quickly, just trying her hand at the style after I showed her your example images. Is this anything you’d be interested in?
