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's New Book

Today, I'm celebrating. My illustrated picture book, Candy Canes in Bethlehem, is out! Yay! Eat a candy cane and celebrate a little bit of Christmas with me today on this fine May Day.

  1. With so many elements, it's interesting how gently the cover seems to breathe. Nice.

  2. Thanks so much AHAviews. It was a challenge to get all the elements working together. I'm glad I achieved my goal.
