Well, I did!
And was I in for a rude surprise.
Yes, this little picture book was a lot more difficult than I ever imagined.
But I’m getting closer to the finish line.
This little Princess is almost here.
I’m working on covers now.
Coming into the home stretch and shooting for an April launch! Whoo hoo.
Sometimes I’m so naive. I’d really thought this picture book would be easier than my first book, Tryouts for Ben. Boy was I in for a big surprise. I’m beginning to believe, size doesn’t matter. LOL
A book is a book, and the work involved to bring it to readers, no matter their age, is all the same. As a writer, I want to always produce a great product and that takes a lot of time and work. An editor is just as valuable for a children’s book as for a 600 page historical novel.
Concept and idea matters. In fact, I’m learning as with every story I write, everything matters.
If you’re interested in writing a children’s book the following articles may help you get started.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the cover for my new book.
Too plain? Suggestions?
