I was going to write a post in the CBI Seminar on Children’s Publishing, but I think, David has it covered and rather than split the discussion I thought I’d direct people to it from here!
I’ll say these few things though:
1) I thoroughly enjoyed it
2) There is an awful lot of passion in Ireland about Children’s publishing
3) No one holds out any hope for picture books which distresses me enormously but is a reality
4) We have got to break open new markets (however we do that!) or our market will shrivel and die!
Feeling a bit more rested, definitely more energized and exciting about the forthcoming holiday (Chicago for a week! Whoop!)
