I’m so excited! My children’s book series is finally reaching its culmination. I’ve got three books in the series so far, and could see myself adding endless more to it! That’s the fun of writing a kid’s book. There are just endless places your characters can travel with a book that has less than 500 words, although keeping it that short can be quite a challenge. I’ve definitely had to learn to stop being overly descriptive.
After researching children’s books in regards to publishing them, I realized most publishing companies don’t really like producing children’s books that are stand-alone. A series goes a longer way in attracting attention. It can make more money for the company and is a lot better to market. With that in mind, I’ve created a story that can go far and characters that are super fun, in my humble opinion, that is 😉
I have a graphic designer creating a book cover design for me. Although I’m going the traditional publishing route, I wanted to see my characters brought to life. Plus some literary agents like seeing illustrations with the submission, so it’ll be a nice touch.
I have some really cool marketing strategies in place that I’m ready to present.
Now it’s come to that query letter moment. It can make me or break me. I’m ready to immerse myself in researching how to write a compelling query letter. If you have any tips, I’d love to hear from you!!! Whether you’ve written a successful one or not, any advice counts.
