about this item

It is the place where wizards live, forests are enchanted, and things are often not what they seem. It is also the home of editors, agents, marketers, and art directors. It is the world of children’s book publishing. Until the first edition of this book was released, it was one of the most confusing places for hopeful writers to navigate as well. Now, in response to a rapidly changing industry, award-winning writer Liza N. Burby has revised and updated this complete guide to making the right children’s book publisher say yes to your book for children or young adults.

This edition of How to Publish Your Children’s Book begins by helping you define your book’s category, audience, and marketplace so that you know exactly where your book “fits in.” You are then taught how to choose the best publishing companies for your book proposal, as well as coached in how to write a winning submission package. Then the Square One System tells you exactly how to submit your package so that you optimize your chance of success while minimizing your time, cost, and effort. Also included is a special section on contracts that will turn legalese into plain English, allowing you to be a savvy player in the publishing game. Most important, this book will help you avoid the most common errors that so often prevent writers from reaching their goal. Throughout each chapter, you will gain valuable insight into the typical thought processes of children’s book editors, agents, and publishers, as well as practical advice from popular children’s authors such as Jane Yolen and Johanna Hurwitz.

Whether you’re just thinking about writing a YA or children’s book, or are already a published author, you’re sure to find How to Publish Your Children’s Book a solid reference guide you can use time and time again.
