Additional Book Details

Children’s books are a very special medium that have introduced millions of young people to the joys of reading. Everyone from single moms to top celebrities have penned bestsellers promoting the virtues and values that children need to learn at a young age to lead happy, healthy lives. There are many different ways that a children’s book can be written, from the simplest rhyming picture books to more involved novella stories. Whatever your story may be, publishing it is well within your grasp.

This book provides a complete overview of everything a prospective children’s writer needs to complete and publish their own children’s book. You will start by learning how to recognize the market and style of the book you have written and adjust your book if necessary to fit a specific market where it will be easier to publish. You will learn the basics of the children’s book publishing industry and how it is fundamentally different from that of the regular publishing industry. You will learn how to choose the right publisher or print on demand option for your book and how to start preparing the package, with special consideration for illustrations and other aspects of your book that might change the overall presentation.

Top publishers and writers in the children’s book industry were interviewed and have lent their expertise to this book to provide an overview of everything that is needed in the process. You will learn what morals and values publishers and readers look for in good children’s books and what you should expect in a publication deal. You will learn how to handle your editor, what to expect in revisions, and how to go about the process of selling your book. You will learn how to gain publicity on your own and what you can do to build your book into a long term career. For anyone that has ever written or is considering writing their own children’s book, this book will provide the information and resources you need to get it published.
