Finished my first children book and want my illustrator start with the illustrations.
What are the general requirements for illustrations?
What do I need to know? Is the print book size and e-book format enough info to start with the artwork?
Are the illustrations usually submitted in separate files or I have to place them in my manuscript myself? What format they have to be in?
Should I wait for illustrations to get ready and THEN send it all to the publisher or send the manuscript first for evaluation, etc?
