Contact Authors: Step 2 "Follow Up"

Be selective with projects and clients. The pitch has been made. A card received. Continue the momentum through prompt follow up! Is this the right project and client?
  • Send an email to the correct contact within two (2) days. The email should include the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How. Use this example:
“Hello Ms. Mary Jones,

We meet (where?) at Book Expo America (when?) two days ago. I was (who?) the somewhat funny illustrator in the Heartbreaker t-shirt. Your (what?) book about fairies sounds exciting. (why?) We can create a profitable story using both our talents. (how?) My contact information is listed below.

Our meeting was brief. Did you have any additional questions?

The Professional Illustrator
