One of the things I LOVE about kid lit is how tight and cool the community is.
I’ve emailed, interviewed, and am actual friends with (some all 3 others not) 3 authors on this list of 10.
I’ve read books written by most of the rest. I’m not bragging, I want you to know even if you’re not published yet, it doesn’t mean you’re not a fantastic writer. It doesn’t mean you can’t have the support of other writers. It means you’re not alone in your creative endeavor.
Now go forth and work your ass off and let’s everyone get on this list!
