Q: Will you illustrate my picture book?

A: I’d be happy to, if you’re asking on behalf of a professional publisher operating under professional terms. If you’re an aspiring author trying to get published, be advised that most publishers today won’t even look at a collaborative submission from an unpublished author and/or illustrator. Your best option, unless you’ve already got some clout behind you and the ear of a willing editor, is to submit your manuscript on its own merits. Trust me. I’ve swum those waters already.
