So, you’ve written a children’s book but what now?
How do you decide which service to publish with?
I think it really depends on your target audience. More than cost and convenience needs to be considered. Where do you want to market your book? What age is your book for? Will it sell better in e-format or hardback? Do you want to see it in libraries or schools? What size will it be? Those are just a few.
Her post explains the costs and services of three print-on-demand routes you can take. . For my easy reader I went with just Createspace, but for my two picture books, I used Ingram Sparks and Createspace.
Have you published a picture book? Which did you use?
Do you only publish e-books? Why?

Kindle in Motion is a totally different format than Kindle A\V or Kindle with Audio\Video. Which makes me wonder if KM will fare better.
With little fanfare, Amazon introduced Kindle in Motion in the middle of 2016. Not sure how I missed this rollout, apparently I was lost in space. LOL
After reading a recent post about the new moving ebooks, I decided to do a little research. If you didn’t know, I love research. Hello, Google.
As usual, I’ve provided more links at the end of this post for your reading pleasure.
Size is important and the size of Kindle in Motion books range between 200-600mb. And apparently, there is a lot involved in producing a Kindle in Motion ebook other than formatting.
After watching this I saw dollar signs! Cha-ching, going out not coming in. I don’t know about you guys but this technique will most likely price me out of formatting my books with Kindle in Motion.The artwork, in and of itself, is expensive. But, animated artwork is downright prohibitive for most writers. Unless you’ve enjoyed the success of JK Rowling.
Food for thought. An author might cut costs by animating just the cover and not the entire book, but would the reader be disappointed?
Do you think these books are distracting or entertaining?
Do you think Kindle in Motion will increase sales?
Or do you think the cost will be prohibitive for most writers?
