View Full Version : POD Children's Picture Book

05-24-2011, 09:25 PM
I've not been here for a while, so I apologize if this question has already been posed. I looked at the threads, and couldn't find it.

I'm interested in knowing if anyone here has published a children's picture book using POD. I know it's pretty expensive to do so, and have already taken the cost into account.

Any suggestions about where to find a reasonably priced illustrator?

You might want to go to the SCBWI site; maybe they have some names or info. Or a site like guru.com. Or google "illustrators for hire."

Finding an illustrators won't be a problem. As mentioned above, there's SCBWI, and you could post on AW. The bigger question is knowing what you are getting involved in starting a POD business -- the amount of your time that will be needed, your money, formating and design knowledge, illustration, production, promotion, marketing, distribution, and more.
