Middle Grade Author & Illustrator Derrick Chow and A Certain Amount of Quietude

Queries, Qualms, & Quirks asks published authors to share their successful query letter and discuss their journey from first spark to day of publication.

Middle Grade Author & Illustrator Derrick Chow joins Queries, Qualms, & Quirks this week to discuss how agent referrals aren’t the end all, the courage it takes to show your work to another person for the first time, how an auction isn’t all about the money, the joy of meeting young readers, all the distractions that come after a contract is signed, avoiding scammy publishers, and more.

Derrick Chow is an author, illustrator, and comic creator. His short stories have been featured in several comic anthologies; and his illustrations appear in newspapers, magazines, and books across North America. His debut middle-grade horror novel, RAVENOUS THINGS, from Disney-Hyperion is out now.
