About the Book

When I first tiptoed into the book publishing industry I was as green as a four-leaf clover.

I discovered writers’ workshops charge hopeful authors hundreds of dollars with the promise of turning their book into a bestseller but they are so generic it doesn’t really help. I also learned that the information provided does not contain the details necessary for children’s books to find success.

This is not a get-rich-quick-scheme. There are no secrets to book publishing. This is an in-depth roadmap to what lies ahead if you decide to take this journey. All of this will take talent, time, hard work and desire.

Inside you will discover:

  • How to write for children utilizing proper vocabulary and grammar.
  • Determine if your story is for a picture book, early reader or chapter book.
  • Choosing between traditional publishing, vanity, hybrid or self-publishing.
  • Learn the stages of editing with Tips & Tricks for the pre-editing process.
  • How to find illustrators, format your interior and design a great book cover.
  • The pre-marketing and post-marketing process and how marketing never ends.
  • How and where to get book reviews and use those reviews to build momentum.
  • How to pick popular keyword phrases to ensure your book is discoverable.
  • Marketing direct to the public, powerful strategies and suggestions.
  • How to visit schools, bookstores and attend other public events.
  • The Dark Side of Publishing, what other authors won’t tell you or prepare you for.

Writing a book can be hard. Marketing can be even harder.
