Thanks for the information. I neglected to mention that this will be a self published book for non and early readers. I am guessing that that illustrator and I will need to reach a mutually beneficial agreement on our own. I was just wondering if anyone else had had a similar experience.

Hi All,

Passing along another contest I have been trying to look into. As I just explored this part of the forums where these can be shared, posting it along. You might already know though.

100 word story about Halloween (100 WORDSSSSSSS , I KNOWWWWW). There are mandatory 3 words to be used - creak, broom and pumpkin.

Deadline's , of course 31st Oct!

I am not even close to this word count. I would be gratified to read some stories in these categories, next on my to-do list.

All the best everyone who decide to hop in.

Nice to know this part of the forum. I had known about the contest  for a couple days, but hadn't yet explored this forum to share it.
Thanks for the other link about the reading levels. This was so very helpful, thank you for sharing.
Writing / Re: Revisionland

Mark, I am glad your ideas are flowing in the right direction, that's awesome! I just wanted to toss some advice/an idea at you. When I was starting out with the writing, I had a hard time seeing/fixing my own flaws... until I saw similar flaws in another person's writing. I recommend exchanging critiques with a few other writers. It can be scary/frustrating, because you will inevitably run into people who don't critique well. I'll admit to ignoring a lot of the (bad) feedback I got. But I learned SO MUCH from trying to help other writers straighten out their books. A lot of my steady critique partners are published now, and I'm in a few thank you notes. And that's super cool, too. :)

Karen, that depends on what kind of book it is. If it's a picture book, royalties are usually split 50/50, but with the illustrator getting a larger advance. So if the royalties are 10% of list, the illustrator would get 5%.
