Thanks Debbie and Tara :) I didn't choose the Hilton as the flights were quite pricy so I went with a cheaper option for the hotel! However, I do think I will probably drive so would definitely be up for meeting on the Friday night at the Hilton if something gets organised.  So yes, please do let us know, Tara.
Debbie, I'd say let's organise something ourselves but at the moment you are the only other person i know going! Hopefully some more people will join the facebook group nearer the time.

I have an idea for a NF picture book but would like to include some actual photos for the Author Notes section.  Any advice on how to find and acquire pictures?

Any information would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Thanks for the info Tara. I was wondering about a Friday night dinner, but I haven't seen anything on the Facebook page or here yet about it. If you hear anything, please let us know.

Aha! I just came to check to see if Sian connected with other mentees.

The East Brunswick Hilton is typically a top choice for mentees. Someone usually organizes a Friday night dinner or get-together there each year.

If you don't want to drive, I'm sure Ubers will be available. It's just a few miles from the hotel to the Cook Campus Center.

There are also plenty of Taxis at Newark Airport. The Airport is Exit 13 on The NJ Turnpike and the East Brunswick Hilton is at Exit 9, between the two office towers you can see from the Turnpike.
Illustrating / Re: How to Commission Illustrations

Gwen, if you follow the link in Tanja’s Post at the top of this page, it will take you to the blog where you will find more info and yet another link, to the pamphlet. I don’t know if it’s been made downloadable or not.
As for what an Illustrator would charge to work with either an Author or a Publisher, that varies widely and is up to the Illustrator and what they feel best compensates them on a project by project basis.

I am collaborating with a couple of authors and could use some input on pricing per illustration.  my previous was gallery hung, so priced at retail (with framing etc) . taking that in to account a wholesale price of a small piece (12x20) would be $400.  Is that reasonalbe for a black and white and how much of an increase for clor.
