My name is Tyler Joshua Naimoli, and I am a children’s book writer, illustrator, cartoonist, graphic novelist and game designer based in New York City. Since I was ten years old, I have been creating all kinds of characters and works. They were all each their own thing until a few years later, when I decided to make all these works take place in the same continuity, which I call the Naimoli Universe! In May 2021, I graduated from Parsons School of Design and The New School with a dual degree in Illustration / Journalism + Design. In June 2022, I became a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). This website is where I talk about children’s book media other than my own.
- All proxies are banned! See Rule #2 for more.
- Please don’t deceive others. Nobody likes to be the victim of a con-artist. Posing as another user (stealing their identity or impersonating them) is a major violation of my rules.
- IMPORTANT: This also includes myself (plagiarism). Not crediting me as the creator of my work or manipulating my work against my wishes in any capacity will have serious consequences.
- Be respectful towards your fellow commenters. I would like to not contribute to one of the more chaotic comment sections out there on the Internet, and would appreciate a peaceful community. This includes but is not limited to no bullying, calling people names, spreading false rumors, etc.
- IMPORTANT: This also includes myself (hate/subjective criticism), and depending on the severity of the circumstances, breaking this rule as applied to me runs the biggest chance of you getting banned.
- No inappropriate content. Please do not use profanity, post insulting or offensive content, or debate controversial topics unrelated to the content of the site. Keep everything child-friendly.
- Keep to the subject of the content of the site. This means to generally keep the discussion on children’s literature. Anything related is fine.
- Please do not share personal information. Also, be sure to not ask for any from others.
- Stay on topic. Put your comments in the right posts and pages. For example, if you want to talk about Diary of a Wimpy Kid, it would be best to do it on a post or page that is focusing on that series.
- Don’t spam. As applied to this site, this means no:
- Typing something random that makes no sense
- Having little to no reason to advertise your own site, if you have one
This is where to get the answers to questions that have been asked and answered before. Instead of asking these questions again, please refer to this section for the answer to the question you are thinking of, unless it hasn’t been added here yet. This section will be updated accordingly.
Q: Will you ever reveal your other projects?
A: Everything will be revealed in time on Naimoli Universe, and hopefully soon. Note that some projects I’m working on will simply not be revealed until it is close to publication, depending on whether or not I’m allowed.
Q: How often will you post?
A: As I am working on launching my career and my other projects, not all the time. However, this is because I try my best to make the best content I could possibly make. I will do everything I can to maintain my presence of course, but if I simply can’t I will be sure to provide updates regarding when I will be able to post again.
Q: Is this site going anywhere after you get published?
A: Probably, since I will likely be completely dedicating my time to my personal work. I invested a lot of time and work to this blog though, and it has been a lot of fun, so I am looking at possible ideas for the site’s future. However, I certainly plan on making the Naimoli Universe Twitter a more personal account for you to stay in touch as many children’s book authors do. And of course, there is the actually published work.
