How do you Publish a Children's BookWhat is the best way to publish a children's book?
Stage one: Give yourself a publisher nameMy'Business Partner' and I (aka, my BFF) founded Little People Publishers and we publish our titles under this name.
It' going to make you feel more confident when you go to bookshops, galleries and other places where you want to sell your book. Stage two: Compiling the bookIf you have non-digital artwork (paintings and drawings), have it digitally processed and made available as high-resolution jpg. I suggest Zo at iZaps. iZaps is a scarce find not only for the useful services, but you have a commercially available scan that converts your nice pictures into high-quality high-resolution hgps.
The next step is to combinate your jg-pictures with your text (it is called'layout'). It is a good time at this point to come to your chosen printers and discuss book sizing and cost. Tip: The number of pages in a book usually increases by eight, with 32 pages being the most commonly used book-sized, giving you 24 pages for your book.
Self-ended' means that your printing design includes the artwork. They can use applications like Adobe InDesign, Scribus or PageStream to design your book, or find a graphics or book design professional to do it for you - sometimes your printers also do it. At the end you will receive a free downloadable copy of your book (usually as a high-resolution pdf).
If you want to bring your book to shops and galleries (aim for the stars!) you need an IBSN (International Standart Book Number), which the National Library can provide. A Amazon number (AISN) is an alternate to an ICSBN if you do not plan to resell through shops. You will find a default copyrights provision in most of your work. Use it as a good guideline.
While you can only publish your book for Kinderle or Pad (Amazon self-publishing can guide you through the steps), nothing surpasses a storybook that you can move and sense. Print the finished book's digitally created data onto a computer screen, choose the type of book you want to print, choose the type of book that you want to print, choose the type of book that you want to print on the inside of the envelope and inside pages, and choose a type of bind.
You can find freelance illustrations (and book designers) on websites like guru.com. Someone to do it for you My must-have for all things in book making is Zo at iZaps (as noted above). We also offer a comprehensive range of services for designing and laying out - and can also connect you to some of our off-shore illustrations.
Pertridge Publishing can help you do everything, from getting an ISBN, downloading to Amazon and the ticket! I' had a great time with Ingram Spark's on-line self-publishing notation. Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators is a beautiful group. You can find more hints on the Facebook page of Leila's Self Published Children's Authors and Illustrators.
