Even if you don’t aspire to be a best selling author, there is no reason why you shouldn’t have your story published.
Have you ever wondered how to write a children’s book, and if you have what it takes to create one? Maybe you have an incredible idea that you can’t stop thinking about. Or maybe you want to put to paper your little one’s favorite bedtime story–the one you made up while snuggling together. Whatever the reason, now is the time to check this dream off your bucket list.
Writing and publishing your own children’s book is no longer difficult to do, nor is it financially unattainable. You could actually have your book printed for FREE, yes, free…ZERO money. (but spoiler, this will mean A LOT of work for you.) You could end up spending half a fortune just figuring out how to go about all the steps involved. My hope is, if you found your way here, you can learn from my mistakes and it will save you lots of headaches.
If your ultimate goal is to get published the traditional way, presenting a well-performing, professional book and an established author platform, will ultimately increase your chances of landing a publisher! Truth be told, this was my initial plan, but now that I know how easy it can be, I would not be scared to self publish all my upcoming projects!
There are several steps to set publishing, and many things to consider when you are first getting started. Just remember, children value creativity and individuality. There is no one way to draw. No one way to paint. No one way to write. It’s about being uniquely you, lending your unique voice to your unique story. I hope you are inspired to write your own children’s book!
