|Kids Book Editor goes live|
February 27, 2010
It’s a rare pleasure to design websites for clients who know what they want from a website – and who know how to write good web content. Children’s book editor Monique Stephens is such a client; and her recently launched website,
was, as a consequence, a joy to build.
With a client like this, web design is almost too easy!

Update! Monique is now offering children's book writing classes for aspiring writers. See KidsBookWriter.com. The classes are offered online or offline, with the first offline class due to take place in London in early 2014.
I've seen Monique's teaching materials—and they're excellent, of course. She gives great advice on building characters, structuring stories and the like. But what I found most interesting were her industry-insider insights about, for example, hiring illustrators, using agents and writing in verse. That's her big competitive advantage: As a published writer and an experienced editor, she knows children's books from both sides of the editor's desk. If writing the next Harry Potter was my ambition, I think I'd find Monique's course invaluable!
