Thanks to your niece, son, student, neighbor do you have a great idea for a children’s book? You do…BUT…no idea how to get it published. Oh, you do know how to get it published…but your MS is lost in a slush pile. Grrreat.
Well, there are other options. Do you believe in your work?
If it requires illustrations, then hit up your local college art class…and recruit.
It doesn’t have to be a certain size or hard cover, just bound.
Then, call up libraries, schools, sunday schools, play groups, play places, daycares…anywhere children are…parks, gyms, wherever. Set up some time to read your book to as many children as you can get in front of.
Make sure you have a stack of books with you for purchase, or even leave behinds for purchase.
Just like a local musician makes CDs, a local writer makes books.
Communities are built around supporting each other. So, put your work out there for others to enjoy…PRINT IT!
