The New CWIM Is Here!

My intrepid postwoman just plopped a fat 'n' fresh copy of Alice Pope's 2010 Children's Writer's and Illustrator's Market on my doorstep!

It looks great. No, I haven't read the whole thing. (It just came, remember?) And I probably won't. (Not a reasonable goal, really.) But I did want to pop in to give this edition a big thumbs up.

It's always a great resource for market info and insightful articles from industry pros. This year, though, I'm thrilled to see the new feature of access to an online database of all the markets listed in the book. I don't buy this resource every year (last edition purchased: 2003), but that little bonus makes me very, very happy — and it will likely turn me into an annual customer. (Smart move, publisher!)

That IS great news about the new feature of an online database. I'm not an annual customer as of now either, but with all the changes and moves recently, I think it's time to get the 2010 issue! Thanks for reminding me! :)

All the best,

Lori, that was my thought too -- that this year was a good one to get a nice snapshot of who's (still) out there!

I'm jealous, Lisa. I don't have my copy yet, and this is the first time I have an article in it!
