Scenic Ebooks for Children
Today's commentary is by Laura Backes from Children's Book Insider and Image eBook Mastery. In September last year, Amazon launched KDP Kids' Book Creator, which allows the avarage Joe to make illustrative children's book for the Kindle and directly download it to Amazon. They can be printed in horizontal orientation (to imitate the layouts of printed books) and can contain text pop-ups that magnify the text with a touch or click to make reading easy.
By the way: With KDP Kids' Book Creator you publish via Amazon's Kindle Direct Publication Programme. There are several licensing options within this programme and you can select whether you want to be added to KDP Select or not, which allows Amazon to sell your eBooks exclusively for a certain amount of money in return for discounts.
The KDP Kids' Book Creator still has a few harsh parts (which Amazon is probably doing in reaction to users' feedback), but it's a good first. All of us who have been working at Kinderverlag for years have recognised this step for what it was: a playwright. How much has Amazon's new free app change the gameplay?
Amazon is reinvesting in the publication of the Kid's Book Creator and the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition Tab with the aim of creating illustrative e-books. But not every self-published storybook will make it. Is there a chance for a fight in your book? They have a book that addresses a specialized area. That doesn't necessarily mean the book shouldn't be.
All you have to do is try to contact directly the consumer who is looking for a particular subject in your book. When your history identifies a kid with certain nutritional allergies and how he needs to control takeaway times in pre-school, you can type host post for parentering blogs that concentrate on these issues, or even blogs via nourishment and cooking. What's more, you can also control your child's diet.
A lot of Mummy blogs welcome guests on all facets of childcare, and you can include your book in your biography. They already have a good online following. Would Shyba have decided to release the book herself and do the same? If your blogs attract the kind of folks who would buy your book, you still have a prospective clientele.
First two or three image eBook from now means you are working on the creation of a name for yourself and setting up a spread. When you do these ledgers well and intelligently commercialize them, you can establish a reputations that can result in more possibilities and perhaps even better tradtion. You can take lessons in picture-book typing and designing, visit our workshop, join a group of critics, engage a qualified journalist.
You' re looking for and need your book to get five-star ratings at Amazon, and not just from your mum. and you' re sick of coming forward. Neither will it disguise a poorly thought-out narrative or script that does not address the desired public. First you need to find out why the script was declined and fix the issue.
Claim all you want, but there's no way around it - if you want to resell the book, you have to promote it. Don't think you'll put a book on all your friends' Facebook pages and end it for a whole tag. This is critical if you want your figure e-book to draw an audience.
Keep in mind that your first selling tools is your album sleeve and your second selling tools are the first two pages of your book if you have Amazon's Look Inside functional. Browse the Society of Children's Book Writers & illustrators Illustrator Gallery or find free-lance illustrations on websites like elance.com.
Talking of a smaller display, keep in mind that the pictures should be clear and without too many small detail so that they can be seen clearly on a Kindle or iPad. Most of all, the greatest obstacle towards successful self-publishing of figure e-books does not have to be the tech. Believe me, the KDP Kids' Book Creator application is simple to use.
Thousands of writers and graphic designers have taken this chance to sell their Amazon titles - and they're not all young upstart artists who could use an application before pottying!
