EMMA WALTON HAMILTON CHILDREN'S BOOK HUB INTERVIEW
In January 2013, I did an extended interview of my friend and colleague Emma Walton Hamilton, founder of the Children’s Book Hub, for the Hub’s Expert Interviews series (Emma was the Expert for a change, instead of the Interviewer). Emma graciously allowed me to serialize the transcript of this oral interview. The links are below:
JULIE GRIBBLE'S MAKING A PICTURE BOOK SERIES
Julie Gribble is a media specialist who is now making her mark in the world of children’s writing. Lori Hanson is an illustrator. Julie and Lori independently published their first picture book, Bubblegum Princess in July 2013. In this on-going series of guest posts, they take us through the entire process in fascinating and enlightening detail. Most of the posts are written by Julie, with Lori contributing posts occasionally.
I’m glad to host her series on By Word of Beth.
Besides the interviews and Julie’s series, there have also been a few guest posts on By Word of Beth. I hope to host other guests in the future!
