Welcome to Manic Network!

Here, you will find like-minded individuals who know how difficult it is to juggle not only creating the story, but illustrating it as well. When you as the writer are also the illustrator, you find a certain amount of freedom to draw what you want, what your inner-eye sees. But with that freedom comes the blind-sidedness of only one perspective, your own. As a group, we can offer that unique second perspective and help unleash a story's true potential. I hope you can learn from the members here as well as teach others a thing or two about the art of story-telling.

Traci Van Wagoner -- New Picture Book

I'm so excited to announce that I've finished the illustrations for my latest picture book, Candy Canes in Bethlehem, by Mirriam Van Scott. It is be being published by Pauline Books and Media and is scheduled to come out in May 2012. Today I found it listed on BN.com. Yipee! Here's a peak at one of the interior illustrations.
