Writing for Children One Step at a Time is a 100+ page e-book. It is a compilation of articles for children’s writers and articles about writing in general, including the basics, grammar, and manuscript formatting. It also includes writing exercises, self-publishing, marketing advice, and tons of writing and marketing resources to help you on your journey to publication. It’s kind of a GPS for beginner writers and beyond – all this information in one easy to read e-book.
Writing is a journey, and as with any journey you wouldn’t haphazardly start without knowing where you’re going and how to get there. That’s what Writing for Children One Step at a Time addresses.
The very first thing you need to do, before searching out a company to publish your book, is to write a book. It may sound simple, but there is much involved. As a book reviewer and acquisitions editor intern I see a number of self-published books and submitted manuscripts that are poorly written.
This e-book is to provide some tips and instruction on what to do before you start submitting your manuscript or sign up with a self-publishing company. And, there’s quite a bit about what to do after you’ve taken the plunge. The really hard part of writing is the marketing.
