Publishing, Writing and Kid Lit

What issues should an author consider in working with a traditional publisher vs. self-publishing? How important is it to work with an editor? What should you consider when choosing a cover or fonts for your children’s book? What are some of the other issues that may arise if you also illustrate your own stories? How important is it for parents to find time in their busy day to read to their children?

To see my answers to these and other questions, drop by Earl Robert’s website at http://countryessays.com/booksahead/?p=479. Read his article as he weaves together a discussion of many of the issues we all face when writing children’s books along with information about my background, writing process and publishing experiences. Earl combines his article with a video and description of my latest picture books, including my newly published book, Clowning Around. He also provides the URLs where my books may be purchased.

Earl and I have exchanged comments from time to time over the past year on Linkedin. I have always found his comments insightful. A true professional, he is generous with his expertise. I am delighted to have this spot on his website.

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.
