Pat Achilles in Pennsylvania:
(1) I’d like to invite anyone in communications, publishing, advertising, design or related industries to stop by the Illustrators’ Meet & Greet, hosted by the Bucks County Illustrators Society on Monday, Feb. 13 from 7-9 PM. This is our second annual informal night of networking, with some outstanding local illustrators who offer singularly creative resources to the business community. The event will be held in Paxson Hall at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 84 E. Oakland Ave., Doylestown 18901. Please take a look at some of our members’ work at http://bit.ly/wIwS2A. Interested illustrators can get further info at http://bit.ly/o1T1uS+.
(2) A reminder for authors: Next month I’ll give a presentation on “Getting Your Story Illustrated” at Temple University’s Ambler campus. Aimed especially for writers of children’s books, it will be on Saturday, February 25, from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM. I’ll speak on finding an illustrator, what to do while working with an illustrator to make your book look great and market well, costs and ways to cut expenses, tips on traditional & self-publishing, and marketing ideas for events, online promotion & networking.
