The Postcard Post Old Home Week: Nina Victor Crittenden and Jenn Bower

It’s time once again to take a look at what illustrators who shared their postcards and tips with us in the past are up to now. Postcard Post Old Home Week is back with illustrators  Nina Victor Crittenden and Jenn Bower.

Nina Victor Crittenden

Nina has had an exciting year. She signed on with agent Teresa Kietlinski of Prospect Agency a year ago. At the moment, she is illustrating a new picture book called CHICKEN LILY that will be published by Henry Holt in the spring of 2016.

Great news! Can’t wait to see meet Chicken Lily!

Aw! Everyone needs a protective wing sometimes.

Jenn Bower

Since Jenn’s interview with Sub It Club she has signed with literary agent, Danielle Smith from Red Fox Literary. According to Jenn, signing with her agent was a direct result of Danielle picking up her postcard at the 2013 SCBWI Carolinas conference. Jenn now has a book out on submission. She says “The postcards do work!”

Yes they do! Big congratulations, Jenn!

Here is Jenn’s latest promotional postcard which she sent out in conjunction with the book submission.
