Hi folks!

Eileen Robinson and I are broadcasting a Kid's Book Revisions webinar on January 23, in which we look at four different picture books (a classic, one with more text, a nonfiction title, and a "metafiction" PB) in order to lay out a theory about how picture books work.

Live seats have filled, but we plan to make a video recording of the webinar available soon afterwards. You can be notified about it and get a link to it by signing up for a special mailing list. There's a link to the sign-up page and more information about the webinar on the page about How Do Picture Books Work?.

Please let me know if you have any questions! And full disclosure: this webinar is set up partly as a preview of and prologue to our upcoming Revising and Re-Imagining Your Picture Book Manuscript webinar class, but it is entirely free-standing (as well as free).

Yes, you are--we sent out a mailing to everyone who signed up to receive it with a link to view the webinar last week. We know that mailing went out and that people received it.  It's likely the mailing is in your spam filter.

I don't want to post the link here because it will expire, so if you can't find the email, please contact me at harold (at) kidsbookrevisions.com and I'll make sure you get it. Thanks!
