This is one of the reasons I've opened The 7 book series as a creative outlet for kids. I'm opening the doors to kids contributing ideas for the stories ... and illustrating them as well. I want them to have the opportunity to see their ideas made real. At some point, I may make videos about the process of turning the writing into a book as well -- maybe a fun learning experience for those who picture themselves as future authors!
Right now I'm working on the second book in the series, and while I can't take any one kid and turn him into the author of the book ... well, he or she can sure add ideas. In my opinion, ALL these ideas will contribute to the world we're essentially building together, but I'll take my favorites and actually put them into the books. So if this is something your child would love to do, please help him or her add those ideas.
Calls for illustrations will come later, so please make sure to follow this blog!
