How to become a Published Children's Book AuthorBecome a published author of children's books?
She is the laureate of the third Cheerios New Author Contest for prospective children's bookwriters. Do you have a history that languishes in your desktop tray? Well, if it's aimed at kids, you might have a shot at seeing your book published and circulated in over two million cheerios to you!
It' a good moment to brush up on an old concept or get inspiration from a new one, as the fourth yearly Cheerios® New Author competition is accepting entries. It is a unique chance to realize your dreams of publication, and this year's competition ends on July 15, 2010.
The book "How to embrace a porcupine? "A spiky, realistic setting soon gave rise to an image of a children's film. Years went by and I thought it wasn't my turn to be published. A Nashville based Shellie Braeuner, who created tales to talk to children, was the 2007 prizewinner; she magically created and wrote her prizewinning tale on the last competition outing.
The 2008 laureate Lori Degman has dug up a 20-year-old script and after many month and several edits has submitted her tale, which has been chosen as the Granddaur. Approaching the competition with big eyes and hope, with lots of memos and a "Do not interrupt me" label on my desk doors.
It is a great prospect for everyone interested in becoming a children's book author. The best part is that it's free and supported by Cheerios to provide great children's literature for homes across the state. The main prize is given the first prize to publish his book in Simon & Schuster Children's Publishers and distribute it in over two million cheerios cartons (which is enormous for a first author).
Next year my book will be published by Simon and Schuster as a hard cover in July 2011. So if you are considering taking part in the competition, here are some of my suggestions: Think of the assessment criterions, try to visualize from the perspective of a five-year-old and test your history on children and people.
Likewise, give more than one storyline because you better practise (I think I have five stories), and relish the whole design work! And, most of all, don't miss the date of July 15, 2010.

Hopefully you are looking for my book "Wie umarmen Sie einen Stachelschwein" in cheerios box next year!
