Children’s book authors: Self-publishing a children’s book means not just writing a good manuscript but also producing the book in various formats, and selling it to those who purchase books for young readers. This guidebook from the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) provides the practical guidance you need.

Drawing on the expertise of ALLi’s self-publishing children’s writers, and with input from ALLi’s Children’s Advisor, the highly successful children’s author Karen Inglis, this book provides everything you need to know to publish and sell children's books in ebook and print editions, and promote them face-to-face and online.

Structured across the seven stages of the publishing process—editorial, design, production, distribution, marketing, promotion and rights licensing–it will teach you:

  • How to work with professional children’s editors, illustrators and designers, and how ALLi can help you to find them
  • Why in-person events like school visits matter and how to do them successfully
  • How tools and tech can help you and make your publishing life productive and profitable

In this #AskALLi Guidebook: Everything you need to know to create beautiful children’s books and reach the readers who’ll most enjoy them.
