Julie, I've gotten in touch with some of my illustrators whose work I love. I still remember the first time I did this--for my  first magazine story that was accepted. Sylvia Long illustrated it and it was so darling with her characteristic bears and she was delighted to hear from me. It is lovely to be able to express your joy and thanks. Don't hesitate. And tell her many blueboarders think her cover is beautiful too :)

I haven't done this, but I have seen it. You can reach out and thank the person for taking on your text and making it the best book. You may also want to try doing events together, even if virtual, and boosting each other on social media.

If you are published in Trade, and you never corresponded with the illustrator during the editing/publication process, what is the etiquette for once the book is published? There are no launches where I am these days, so I'm wondering if authors have ever got in touch on line with illustrators to say hi, gush on their work, and say thanks? I don't want it to sound like the illustrator is not 50% of the book. Thanks for your input.

Hi. Have they announced who has been selected for the haunted short story writing publications? I have not received a rejection email or an acceptance email. Just curious.

Mary, there are some helpful comments above in the thread. They've pushed the book back to next year and have not made final decisions yet. Read more above.

I'm late to this, but I LOVE this concept. And that is all I have to contribute to this discussion.  ;D
