How to Market your Children's Book

This is how you market your children's book

Bigger libraries even offer multiple stories based on different age groups, making targeting your book even easier. Contact your local libraries and inform them about your book. Make sure you bring a number of paper copies on the day of reading so that you can sell your signed book. Astonishingly, bookstores are not good places to sell books. Nor are libraries a good place to sell books.

There are 10 ways to support a first book (promotion of children's books).

Her first book may be a work of art, but first ones have an evil way of being ignored. Bookshops can't take the trouble to order it. A further issue is that if your book is targeted at a specific audience, your publishers may not know how to get in touch with them. A Tale of Ancient India (Whitman, 1992), a 3,000-year-old tale of a Princess who outsmarted the Dead Man to rescue her husband's world.

These are ten ways I have used to increase the appreciation of the book. A book bash. Sent 200 invites to my boyfriends, bookstores, librarians, critics and everyone else in my parish I wanted to inform about Savitri. but at least I made them attentive to the book.

Visits to bookshops and galleries. So I showed the book to my bookshops and library staff and encourage them to order it. Assemble a checklist of experts. Normally your publishing house will ask you for a shortlist of magazines that are particularly interested in your book. When the book addresses one or more trade visitors, this is particularly important.

I have compiled a listing of Hindu, Yogic and Indo-American books from reference libraries such as The Encyclopedia of Associations and Ulrich's International Periodicals Directory, as well as newsletter from large organisations. I am a story teller by profession, and I have also included narrative books and children's broadcasts. Make a retailer inventory. Publishers can also request a bookstore listing.

This is also very important for a reference book. I have compiled a listing of bookshops in my own collection that specialize in Oriental religions, along with a small selection of education resources, as well as bookshops for feminists, New Age and museums. Small, specialised retailers are often ignored by the publishers' distributors, but can be large points of sale if your book suits their needs.

Usually the shops on your mailing lists are contacted by the publishers, but I took it on my own so I can write them up. That' something for use in the schoolroom with your book. I hoped that the teacher who used the screenplay would also want to exchange the schoolbook.

To connect with those who buy and sponsor literature, I became a member of the Association of Bookssellers for Kids, the Northern California Children's Bookssellers Association, the Association of Children's Librarians (for the San Francisco Bay Area), the California Reading Association, and the Sacramento Area Reading Association. I agreed to meet the Northern California Children's Bookssellers Association every month to review Savitri - and reach so many children's bookstores in the region at once.

If you hadn't yet realized, this item was also intended as a way to advertise the book - and as a way to exchange useful information. Get on with your next book. There' s no end to the way you can advertise a book or the amount of free book space you can use.

The best way is to work on your next one. Repetitive publishing will build your image and your selling power better than anything else. So advertise your work, but don't overlook the fact that your readership is still there!
