During this forum for independent authors, you will learn how illustrations can help you convey your children's book's story and reach more readers. Our special guest, Ethan Roffler, will walk you through the process of working with an illustrator and what to consider to go through the process with ease.

During the forum, we will talk about:

- What to look for in a professional illustrator

- How to determine which illustration style will fit your story

- The creative and legal aspects of hiring an illustrator

- Standard rates for professional illustrators
