"Stellar book!" In Becoming a Children’s Author, Reed does her usual stellar job of mentoring the new children's writer through the process of writing for publication. She freely shares the wisdom, knowledge and experience she has gained from working on both sides of the editor's desk. This book is really two books in one, a guide to getting published and a guide to becoming a children's writer. Packed with information, resources and guidance in an easy to read format, Becoming a Children’s Author should be on the reading list of everyone hoping to get their children's writing published.
