A proposition

I would love to be a children's book illustrator.
It's actually a dream of mine.

Writing children's books? ... not so much.

It has come to my attention that there are a lot of people out there who write little stories and poems and make up stories for their kiddie winkles and sometimes even write them down.

So here's the plan:

 Send your stories to me.
*Jedi hand gestures*

Tell me whatever specific visions you have for your words and I will illustrate them FOR FREE.

THEN, I will get them published and sell them in the hopes of making back whatever fee I would have charged you for the illustrations in the first place. I will send you digital copies of your newly illustrated book, so you will have a FREE copy of your FREE illustrations (of course you can buy a book if you want to) and I will plaster your name around the interwebs.
You will end up with a lovingly illustrated book (did I mention it's for free?) and I will end up a better illustrator (hopefully!).

So that is the plan. 

You in? (say 'yes'!)

Email me at eleanor.mccomb@gmail.com if you want to send me your work or if you have any questions or if you just want to say ... Oh hi!

p.s. I am glad to know that there are slightly more than two people following the blog and if you are a blog stalker like me, feel free to follow me with your google account - get clicking at the bottom of the page. Or give us a shout out if you follow by email.
