Podcast: Author Ginger Churchill discusses the art of writing picture books

We’re pleased to present our interview with picture book author Ginger Churchill (Carmen’s Sticky Scab and Wild Rose’s Weaving) as she talks about the art of writing picture books and shares her wisdom and experiences with us in a fun and interesting way. She tells us how long it took her to get published, how she did it, and how she got her ideas. She also covers the technical parts of picture books: format, page length, plot, rhythm, etc. As always, comment for a chance to win a signed copy of one of her books! (Winner will be announced one week after we post our second interview with Ginger.)

    Ginger’s books sound so fun! I always thought it would be fun to do a picture book. I’ve got 4 munchkins under the age of 7, so scabs are really cool at our house.

    They would probably love her book then. Maybe you’ll win it!

    I LOVE the sound of these books. I have never heard of this author before, and I think that I NEEED both of these for my small brood. Thanks!

    Thank you for this nice interview.

    It would be interesting if you could get an illustrator on the podcast to get a different kind of view.
    It bugs me, that illustrators and authors have most of the time no contact in there creative process or afterwards.
    I’m just working on a private project and it is so much more fun and creative to work together. It is so important to get misunderstandings out of the way and to be on one level in terms of story-atmosphere.

    Do you know how to format a book for a publisher which has already illustrations? Sounds like this can be a problem.

    anyway – Thank you for really fun, entertaining and informative podcast 😉
