Working with a Self-Publishing Author

Members Only
Have you been approached by an author who wants you to illustrate their story? This essential resource covers the important points that need to be clear: the commissioning process, time commitment (especially for children’s books), financial arrangements and written contractual agreement.  A downloadable pdf 'Author commissioning Illustrator', drafted in-house by the Society of Authors/AOI, details the key points for an agreement.
