I wrote a children's book. Now what? First, I suggest that you go to your Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators chapters, investigate their messaging boards, and review all available sources. Honesty criticism of your script is a necessary precaution. When you need a refreshing reading of your storybook script, have a look at my storybook peek weeks on my blob.
See also my piece "Does Your Picture Book PREMISE HAVE POWER" and test your script against my lists. If you are willing to apply, The Children's Writer's and Illustrator's Market will be a useful resource.
I' ve written a children's book.... what now?
Did someone publish a book or go through the submission procedure? Especially a children's book? First, you need to choose which publishers are suitable for your book. You' ve got to see if they accepted or didn't take unasked scripts. Download the Writer's Mark for Children's Literature Guide, latest issue.
If you find all publishers who agree to unasked children's scripts, go to each company's website to see if your ideas fit its mailing lists. Your sister's a freelance graphic artist?

We' ll decide to self-publish before I agree to another illuminator, which makes it quite simple. IOL about that just ended... I actually ended the book 3 years ago! But I felt like I couldn't get a book out for a while, and then it took my older brother a while to work on it.
It was not brought to write groups, but worked on by elementary school libraries I worked on. As a general guideline for children's literature, you should not have any illustration in your hands (unless you have done it). I' ve been told, although I have no personally experiences with the fact that you can actually earn a living with a self-published children's book, because the margins in the conventional children's book publisher are so low.
Really, many children's literature costs $5-6, so only about $.50-$. 60 per book the writer gets!
