Hi Tesha,

I own a small publishing company and we've worked with several illustrators. From my experience, you are going to have a hard time getting an artist to take a percentage of sales. They usually want payment for a finished job. I would recommend negotiating where you do not pay the full amount upfront but partial amounts...say some upfront, then mid-way, and the final amount when done. You can request the illustrations be sent to you as they are finished (we do it all by scans and electronic transfer -- 300 dpi at least). I can give you more me at

I'm finishing up two children's stories and I'm curious to know the typical charges for illustrators, anyone have any insight? Also wondering if any of you have experience paying illustrators hourly/by project or did you pay them a % of the total proceeds of sales etc and if so what %? Many thanks for any insight.

Hey lovely ladies - I'm looking for your stories of being on the receiving end of unsolicited advice and judgement about your parenting for an article - here: You can leave your story anonymously or not as you choose - but if you leave me your URL, I will return the favor with lots and lots of comment love :). Thanks!!

Did you ever wish you could get away to a remote cabin, just to write? Here's why you may want to rethink that:

Good Morning! Author friend, Andrew E. Kaufman, is celebrating the release of his While The Savage Sleeps in print format over at Author Island. Stop by and wish him success. He said last night he was a bit nervous so make sure to show your support if you have a minute...

THIS COULD BE ANY ONE OF US!!! Now, that's exciting :)
