The word "essay" came to Russian from French and historically goes back to the Latin word exagium (speedypaper review). The French "essai" can literally be translated with the words experience, trial, attempt, sketch, essay.
Hello! I’m a 3rd year illustration student looking for a writer to collaborate with for my upcoming project. I’d like to collaborate with someone who has interest in mental health issues or have already written about mental health and is seeking an illustrator! My style is varied but mostly digital. If this interests you I can send my portfolio :)
Hello, my name is Rico, and I am a Character designer and book cover illustrator available to collaborate with you on your next project by adding my weird and wonderful character work. I design covers that engage, enlighten and entertain and I want to work with you if you want your work to stand out and be read as well visually, as the rest of your book.
Please see this link and if you like the style, then let’s have a virtual coffee and a chat about your next adventure.
I have been offered a 'buy back deal' by a publisher for a non fiction cookery book- I have to buy 2000 books at a 50% discount and they will pay for all origination and production costs, photographer, designer, copy editor, printing. I get an advance on royalties in 4 instalments of 10K. I believe that for the price point suggested for the book I will pay up front 26K which with the full advance would mean I had paid 16K to get the book published. Is this a bad idea? Am I better going down the route of assisted self publishing and how can I be sure to get a reputable organisation?
Hello! I am currently working on my first children's book, "Beastie", which I intend to self publish. While the text is complete, I have only recently found the perfect illustrator who is bringing my story to life with her beautiful watercolour illustrations. While this is incredibly exciting, I am equally terrified! I am looking for any/ all advice that will help me get my book out there, printed, marketed, read and (hopefully) enjoyed by children everywhere. Thank you so much (in advance) to anyone who has ANY wisdom they would like to bestow on this nervous, terrified "indie" writer!
