Your published books : )

Hi Forum! I finished the final art for my first picture book in April, and the publisher released the cover last month. Imagine a Wolf (Page Street Kids 2021) will be out in the world January 12, 2021, distributed by Macmillan.
SVS Learn continues to be an integral part of my first-book journey. I discovered 3 Point Perspective when I was still in the rough thumb stage - the podcast totally fed my process and helped me immensely. There is always something in the conversation relevant to what I’m doing or thinking about (or should be doing/thinking about!)…and now I’ve been an SVA member for a couple of months and I’m loving the forum, monthly prompts and classes. Thank you!
@Lucky-Platt Thanks Lucky! And congrats!

Do the books have to be published after starting an SVS course? I’m assuming yes
@danielerossi Well, to be honest, I guess anyone can publish a book but taking the classes makes the illustrator improve. I self publish on Amazon and the classes have really helped but, I can see a lot of places I can improve on myself. Finishing a book is a great learning tool to. You can see where you need help
Wow, so cool to see all these! Let's keep this thread going If you have a published children's book out in the world, or know of a fellow SVSLearn student who has one, let us know!

The first picture book I illustrated in English is out this September. Very Excited for this one.
I have one Picture book in Norwegian came out in 2020:
The book did OK. I received my first loyalty report right before the summer holiday :-), very cool. I was also commissioned to do another book with similar concept for the same publisher. I just wrapped up the project before the summer holiday, and the book is coming out this September as well :-).
And here is another book that will also be out this September.
Personally, I have a very mixed feeling about the last book. But as Jake Parker always says "finished, not perfect".
Right now, I moved on to the next picture book which will be a non-fiction book. I am also writing my own picture book, a completely new adventure.
I also did a book cover art and some interior work for a YA fantasy novel.
The book got some attention in the country, and I have seen the book poping up around in the city, and around social media and news paper/magazine reviews. It was really cool to see. Unfortunately, there is no tradition to have the illustrator´s name on the cover (I have asked for this, but the AD said "sorry, we can not do that"). So I did not get much benefit from it apart from being happy to see the book around

Hi! This is my first post here. My brother and I self published a book on Amazon last year. My brother, a Physical Ed Teacher and Coach, wrote it and I did all the illustrations and layouts. As a long ago Art grad I knew I needed help to get to a pro level. I needed to find a place to level myself up as a children’s book illustrator and creator. I’m currently taking the Children’s Book Pro class and I’m blow away with how much I didn’t know. I’m also impressed with how much more of a reality my long time goals are becoming thanks to Jake, Lee and Will.
Thank you ALL at SVS!

This is a neat thread! I've illustrated 2 self published books. I was wondering where I might be able to find other SVS student projects.
