Is this an ebook? If you are doing traditional publishing do you have the "right" to pick your own illustrator? I just finished a book on bullying which is a very important issue and I am happy to hear you are doing a childrens book about it. GOOD FOR YOU! Need more info..how many illustrations do you need? Cover? back cover? end flaps? What do you pay? I am a fairly well known artist and will send my samples once you kindly respond.
