About the Author

For example, why am I finding -- in the children's book publishers section -- publishers who exclusively print college textbooks?? And why are there so many typos? I would expect a book about the publishing industry to place a high value on quality and on essentials like copy editing and proofreading.
It's annoying that so many of the publishers in the directory limit their info to statements like "See our website for submissions information." We are all aware that publishers offer this info on their webpages -- if we wanted to visit the websites of 300 different publishers, we wouldn't be using this directory! That's the whole point of the book! If a publisher doesn't want to provide any actual information about their submissions process, push them to do so. If they won't, don't include them in the directory -- it's a waste of everyone's time and attention.
There are a few new publishers in the book, but I think the folks who compile this directory could try a lot harder to reach out to newer and smaller publishers to include. It's generally the same entries each year. Also, when will they begin including a section for children's ebook and app publishers? This is a big part of the children's illustration market already, and getting bigger.
This book will be useful to new illustrators who are making a mailing list from scratch but I would only recommend this directory to those who don't already have a mailing list they're working from. If you're already working with an okay list of potential clients, it isn't hard to update addresses and contacts using online tools. That's what I will do in the future rather than paying for this directory.
I think many people like this annual directory because there isn't anything better out there (in book form, at least), but the publishers of this directory really need to up the quality.
