This is the INTRODUCTIONS area ... Welcome.
My name is Gary, and I'm the host of this virtual patio party. I brought you all here for two reasons:
- selfishly, perhaps, to provide some valuable feedback on my haiku-for-kidults project, and
- unselfishly, perhaps, to provide a public space where we all can learn a little something.
Me, I live in San Francisco, am 52, and write and edit for a living. This haiku project would be my fourth book. A publisher's interested, who're just making the transition into children's books. Thus two things have befallen me which have initiated some of this discussion:
- finding illustrators, as they don't have a rolodex of children's illustrators, and
- researching further the institutional market for the book, so they can recoup some initial expenses for what might be a high ticket item.
I look forward to meeting you all face-to-face, in real-time, over some steaming Chinese food ...
