New Jersey's SCORE professional education series class "The 6 Steps Plan to e-Publishing," by children's author Ally Nathaniel lit a fire under me this week.  Nathanial has published many beautiful and thoughtful children's books through Amazon, at least one of which fulfills the recent critical opining that children's literature is sorely lacking images of people of color.  I enjoyed a copy of My Spring Day last night.

Another author and accomplished illustrator who includes diversity in her work is Elizabeth Sayles.  I really enjoyed and recommend her recent illustrated book Anne Frank's Chestnut Tree by Jane Kohuth.  And I've preordered What Mary Jo Shared.

I've been inspired to publish old artists books I made and create new books for fun and to market my own work.
