Verla Kay’s Message Board Delivers

There is an overwhelming amount of information out there for aspiring authors.  The hardest part, to me, is finding information that is current, relevant, and accurate in a timely fashion.  I could search for hours on Google, slogging though endless websites of experts (mine own included???), to not find an answer to my question.

Or, I could just visit Verla Kay’s message board for Children’s Writers & Illustrators.  Her categories are well laid out.  The information is fresh.  Posts are typically responded to with multiple, appropriate responses.  And the agents and editors themselves participate. 

If you can’t find what you are looking for, post a question.  Take time to peruse what others are doing.  Get your finger on the pulse of the marketplace.  Any time you spend on this message board is time well spent. 

My username is ktbart (same as my Twitter username).  Let me know if you run into me!
