The Indie Book Writers Blog | Self Publishing | Get Published

Marketing your book can be as fun and creative as the actual process of writing a book — if you have the right
plan. In fact, developing a marketing plan is one of the most important tasks you need to complete in order to promote
your book successfully.

  1. Pick a date when you want to hold a copy of your book. Writing is a process, but publishing is a goal so you need a deadline. And I have found the authors who are successful in self publishing, set a date when they want to hold a copy of their book. Sounds simple, but it is really important.

Children’s Book Publishing: Benefits of Self-Publishing

Benefits of Self-Publishing

Retain Full Rights to Your Book

Your manuscript is your sole possession. By self-publishing your children’s book with us, you retain 100% rights to your work even long after completing publication. You are free to pursue other publishing houses or sell your rights to any entity as these are well within your rights as a self-published author.

Quick Turnaround Times

Traditional publishing revolves around an18-month cycle or even more. Whereas self-publishing your children’s book only takes about two months from the time that you have completely submitted the manuscript and image requirements.

Print As You Please

Print-On-Demand technology relieves the pressure among authors to print large quantities of books that may not work for them yet. You may choose to print as many as 1,500 or as few as one.

Remain In-Print, Forever

Because your book does not need to be physically inside bookstores, and there are no restrictions as to print order volumes, you can ensure your books remains in stock, ready-to-ship and never goes out of print-in perpetuity.

Full Control of the Creative Process

Ability to Test Your Market

Self-publishing allows you to test the market and measure how responsive are the niches you intend to tap prior to committing a full-scale investment.

Ability to Zero-In on Specific Niches

Your intended readers may not be as big as those that most publishing houses will comfortably invest on. However, profitability is not entirely about reaching the largest target demographic. Your children’s book may have a latent market waiting for your book and self-publishing can provide you with means to do it.

Leave A Legacy

Some famous children’s books were personal works of fiction intended for sharing with only family and friends, but through their sheer joy and universal affinity, they have been embraced by the rest of the world.

Take your time.

Writing your book can seem like a long drawn out process, but you want your first reader, whether that is an editor, mentor, or friend, to enjoy reading it. ALWAYS have someone read your work before sending it into the world. After rereading and rewriting your work, your brain is more likely to input words that are missing from the rough draft. Don’t rush this reading and rewriting process because constructive criticism should always be a welcomed tool, whether traditional or self-publishing.
