Margriet Ruurs' website is one of my ultimate favorites:

Someone wrote in saying they enjoy websites from these authors: "Linda Granfield (author), Martha Newbigging (illustrator), Werner Zimmerman (illustrator and author) and Loris Lesynski (illustrator and author)". Also of interest is a publishing house website called
A best book called Writer's Market - Where and How to Sell What You Write is available at Barnes and Noble Bookstore.
