Even more useful tools and podcasts!

I have even more useful tools and podcasts I'd like to share with you!

Tools and Resources:

nuSchool - Form to help you price your work.
I have used this tool to help me price my work for clients.  I have found it to be accurate and very helpful.




KidLit411 - A resource for everything children's book related
The creators of KidLit411 have taken so many resources about children's books and have put them on one website.  It is a great website that covers everything from contests, to tips, to marketing, and social media.  Think of it as like a home base for kidlit.



Will Terry is a successful children's book illustrator (he also has worked in other markets).  His YouTube channel has some great information for freelance illustrators.  He also is a teacher so he explains things very well.  I find it a useful tool to listen to while I work.  I have learned quite a few things from his videos.



Podcasts:

Chris Oatley is a former Disney animation artist.  He shares wonderful interviews and tips through his podcast and on his website.  He also shares great storytelling advice.
