Hi Eric, How are you. I have a question. Are writers still able to upload photos onto Jacketflap? Nothing I try to upload, works. Please let me if you have any info about this.

Hello, Eric. I was hoping you could help me with something. I can't seem to upload a picture of myself, though it is in jpg format. Any suggestions?

Thank you, I am a senior and actually was trying to contact another writer who does not appear to be her. I write poetry and self published :True Love Grows in Brooklyn, and wanted to send a copy to a Helen H. Hover as I was a student of hers. Not sure if this site is right for me.

Hello Eric,
Very nice of you to leave such nice and humble message. I started writing two years ago. I had a few stories in mind that never thought of actually bringing them on paper. I have to say my children were a big inspirations. I have two stories and I am looking for publishers who accep... more

Hi Eric. You were one of my 1st friends on jacket flap. I have not logged on since then because I was in college. Nice to see your accomplishments thus far. Best wishes.
Comment by Brandy Miller on 5/26/2016 at 6:50 AM:
good morning! thanks for your welcome. I love the fairy illustrations! I have an idea for a fairy book. Those give me inspiration to get that book started!! Have a great day. God bless.
Comment by David Lowndes on 5/18/2016 at 12:14 AM:
Cheers for the mail Eric, appreciated. I took a look at your art and I am racking my brains to think who your drawings remind me of, unless I have seen your illustrations on something before possibly. Good stuff though. Dave.
Comment by Grace Cantwell on 5/10/2016 at 7:51 AM:
Hi Eric,
Thanks for reaching out to me. I love your illustrations. Beautiful cross between comic book and realistic. Nice imagery too.
I wish you lived near Newburgh, NY. I'd invite you to come do an illustrators workshop at Barnes & Noble's B-Fest, June 10 thru 12 to show off your... more
Comment by Boaz Heilman on 5/2/2016 at 8:38 AM:
Thank you for your welcome message. I like your illustrations. It would be great to find an agent who would work with both of us in creating a book that contains my writing and your illustrations. You would be perfect for the image I have in mind.
Comment by Janet Fraser on 4/28/2016 at 12:32 PM:
Nice job on your endeavors. You have loads of talent.
Comment by Ian Pike Hammer on 4/22/2016 at 7:19 PM:
Just joined and you were the first to wish me the best. It just so happens I need an illustrator for a book cover. You have talents but I will need a realistic cover for a S & S fantasy in the likeness of Boris Vallejo or Frank Frazetta. Plz go online to view their works if you are not familiar with... more

Hi Eric

Thanks for reaching out to me. Great illustrations. Check out my first children's book at http://www.blurb.com/ebooks/532870-alex-and-the-messy-monster. I actually lost my illustrator and need one for the next two books in the series.

your travails in getting published...from new

Comment by Talis Turner on 2/1/2016 at 11:00 AM:
Hi Eric, Thank you for your welcome to Jacketflap. Is it not FUN to have many ways to be creative? What avenues have you explored to find an agents? Any suggestion for the rest of us who are just starting? We need all the help we can get in this life.
Comment by Patty Friedmann on 1/27/2016 at 12:48 PM:
Thanks for "deflowering" me on JacketFlap, Eric! I write adult literary fiction, so we don't intersect much, but I have a children's story stashed away. It's full of existential say-what? and I might come at you with it one day!
Comment by Maxine Sylvester on 1/16/2016 at 6:57 PM:
Hi Eric
I just wanted to let you know that I am not trying to take over in asking newbies to 'like' your / our FB pages, my intention is to go through all of the old members first, then with any new members I will wait a couple of months AFTER you have connected with them to contact them.... more
