What’s New

WORKSHOPS - for your library or organization! As a published author and illustrator, graphic designer, and experienced public speaker, I offer a presentation on Self-Publishing Children’s Books 101. The workshop includes critical points such as:
* Idea/concept
* Story
* Importance of a dummy
* Design
* Illustration
* Traditional Publishing vs. Self-Publishing

And now, something new! Picture Book Dummies: A Hands-on Workshop to help those with completed manuscripts learn how to make their story even better through the creation of a dummy.

Find details here or please contact me and inquire. I’d love to hear from you!

My original artwork is all you will ever find in my Etsy shop. From everyday blank note cards to Christmas and holiday cards to this adorable journal, you're sure to find something featuring the French Bulldog to love ... for yourself or as a gift.

You can check out my original artwork on this journal and many others in my Etsy shop, JBalsamFrenchieArt.
