List of Children's Book PublishersPublishers of children's books
This is my list of 125 children's book publishers + how to use them;)
You can either try to make "what you want" and try to somehow resell it, as I mentioned in an article about Print on Demand, or you can present your portfolios to prospective customers to be submitted by them. Of course, the first stage will be to build up a Kick-Ass portfolios (I mean a powerful one).
I' ll write about what's needed there (as usual), but if you have one, go to the next stage and prepare the outcome list - look for publishers you think you can recruit on the basis of what they've already released, their profiles, your instincts.
Sure, there are some listings on-line, Google does exist, but throughout the year I am learning that there are always some firms hiding from you maybe one with great book lets, but very few search engine optimization capabilities, or those from the land you haven't considered. The No. 1 list contains publishers from those jurisdictions where English is the main English spoken, such as the United States, the United Kingdom or Australia, but also a few from other states.
The best customer I've had so far is from Korea. On the other side, I only submitted the first years of my carreer to Polish publishers (I come from Poland, if you're surprised) - I just didn't think anyone would want to work with me in another language - they have illustrations in there, right?
Because of the web, it doesn't work that way, and in most cases it doesn't when you hire an artist from another state or state. Playing this means that you have many many different listings list below might not be comprehensive, but as I explained early - it's my one and only output - I select possible customers by checking listings, exhibitor listings in book shows, browsing book stores, searches in Google, searches on Twitter, occasional finds.
The publishers on these listings aren't that great - some of them focus on teaching material that isn't usually that thrilling (but not always! and that's a good way to make a few $$$$). They have small detached homes and big ones like penguins with lots of prints. Ultimate result is your own option and go ahead. and last move is to make those awesome aweary publishers communicate I have a confession to make - I have not sent any emails (or mails) like this since April 2013 (yes 2 years ago) as you (public knowledge) should do this at least 2 times a year.
Well I was working and then I made the decision that my entire business has to be rebuilt and now I only have one agency and now I can't get to customers on my own. Where can I get in touch with prospective customers? Are you going to the publishing side and see what your books (or other products) look like - is it a bit like your ownyle?
Several publishers have exhibited this section very well, but some have hidden it quite well. After all, some of them have not written any, but they are so astonishing that I would still type them second, I strongly suggest that you get to know every customer you writ. Sort of like "My name is My name is My name is X I am an artist and I would like to work with you, and here is my portfolio" - you know what, I did that and that was silly.
Now that I am older and wiser my aim is to send a special note to everyone on your list. Describe what you like about them, how you dream of being a happy group they publish, etc. I' ll give you my list of children's publishers. Now, a few years ago, I wish someone would give me that kind of list.
If you' re so great, you might have something to say.
