Self Publishing for KidsSelf-publishing for children
Our on-line publishing site helps kids learn how to make a product from the initial concept to the final printed version.
It leads young authors through authoring, producing, marketing and sales until they finally release their own text. They urge both teachers to get the children into the schoolroom. It works on both portable and desktop computers, so children can launch a product on a computer in the office and then edit it on their iPad at home.
Writing for children (during education)
No matter that Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd's Schlaflied in the GOODNIGHT MOON Prosa, a volume about a rabbit lying in the sack throughout the whole volume, is and remains one of the best-selling volumes in the story.... according to the publishing houses, silence has not sold. I had my agents submit my work to one publishing house after another and we kept hearing the same words.
So, I decide to make a work on my own conditions. I' d make a work that was all the editors didn't want me to do. I didn't want my textbook to contain many words. It was also an unusual format: it was not a standard children's books size, but a rectangle.
It' all the editors didn't want, but it was the one I wanted to do. In order to find the cash, I choserowdfunding. I' ve spend almost a year investigating everything about winning crown-funding campaign. Although I had no previous professional background in either economics or sales, I came up with a sales plans and budgets.
I had a target of $7,000. However, that's how much I wanted to make the books I wanted to make, and if I couldn't make the books I wanted to make, I saw no point in making them. I' ve used every free minute to advertise my work.
Earning over $10,000, far more than my $7,000 target, I was able to use the additional funds to improve my books with features like commercial laminating and colored intent. It was a small publishing house that provided me with the opportunity to sub-distribute the work as soon as I reached my destination.
It would be named after the publishers, and with the credentials of an experienced editor, I was able to take the books to the library and bookstore and have them checked. It opened many doorways for me. The most important thing is that they are reading my work.
And, if you are publishing with Crodfunding yourself, you may not be the next J.K. Rowling, but I assure you you will have people. Not only does Crodfunding offer you the means you need to get your books published, it also creates excitement for your books and an audiences you would not otherwise have. Anyone who has refused a publication that no one was willing to release will at last have a reader.
