Marketing my Children’s Books

Standard

I have found marketing a challenge for my children’s books, and I wonder if other writers have had similar problems. I have a Facebook page and a website. I am on Linkedin and I blog. Yet it seems the most productive marketing tool are my two feet. I have been most successful by approaching bookstores, toy stores, children’s shops, gift shops, etc. to see if they will take my books or let me do a book signing.  Some will take them outright and some on consignment. I have also had some success with visiting classrooms but mostly through recommendations by friends. Are there other writers out there who have other suggestions for marketing? I’d like to hear your ideas. Thanks, Beryl

About berylreichenberg

I am a storyteller. Writing and illustrating books for children, I have published over 35 titles. Three of my books, "Ants on a Log", "Camouflage", and "The Mysterious Case of the Missing Birthday Cake" have been published by a traditional publisher, Oak Tree Press. These are available from Oak Tree and Amazon as well as other outlets. The others are published by Blurb.com and can be seen on their website. Some of my stories are in prose and some in verse. All are designed for small children and young school children. My fiction stories are designed to delight these children and help them learn about themselves and the world around them. I also have a number of nonfiction books about animals, the natural world, and other cultures. I illustrate my stories with drawings and photographs. I hold a Master's Degree from UCLA and have taught school in California. I hope that young children and their adult companions will enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
