DianaM---this is off topic (sorry everyone if this is against the rules), but I just saw that you wrote Ned the Knitting Pirate. I picked that up not long ago at the library to read to my daughter. We --loved-- it!!  I am a big crocheter and learning to knit, so it was such a fun topic to read about in silly verse!

Research / Re: What Genre is Annie?

Annie is one of those films which is spread across a broad spectrum. Also, it can appeal to a wide audience and you might need to consider that most wouldn't consider it to have ever been a book. What might associate it as a film musical, or adapted for the stage.
It could work as a book, but you'd really need to research the relevance of that type of plot in today's market. Opinions on that topic have changed dramatically!
Personal opinion.

Illustrating / Request for pricing advice?
« Last post by joana-miranda on September 16, 2018, 06:34 PM »
Dear fellow illustrators,
I am new to SCBWI and a newbie on Blueboard  :new and have a question custom illustration pricing.  I've been contacted by a magazine based out of Japan (the NY office contacted me). They are interested in having me do a monthly illustration for a column in their magazine (12 illustrations total).  From what I can tell so far, the illustrations look like they'd need to fit in a 1/2 banner (smallish horizontally oriented rectangle at the top of the page.)  They are asking for figure illustrations, though I've explained that given the small size of the proposed illustration, a head/torso illustration would work better than a full figure illustration.  I asked if they have a budget in mind, but haven't heard back.  This would be the first time I'm doing a multi-illustration magazine project, so I'd welcome any advice on how to proceed with pricing.  Thanks for your help!  Joana
