New things have popped up on the Children’s Book Sequels website

We have added some new icons to the Children’s Book Sequels website. previously the links were in the main paragraph or in the links page but now they are much easier to find. There is now a link and icon to the blog, our Facebook page, and our Twitter feed in the menu at the top of every page. Follow us on social media and read about all the wonderful and amazing things that go on in the world of children’s books.

For many years illustrators have been the poor relation in books for older children, but with more books being illustrated, they need to have a bigger presence. So finally we are adding an “Illustrated by” field on the Children’s Book Sequels website. Yes, I know, about time. I now need help from you to share this news everywhere and get any illustrators you know to check the Children’s Book Sequels website and if there is a series on there that they have illustrated, please let me know. There is a contact me form on the website.
