It touches on the different parts of a book, story elements, laying out a book, fonts and text, illustrating, proofing a book, print-on-demand, royalties, uploading to Amazon KDP, and more.

You could write an entire book on every aspect of publishing, but this overview will help keep you from getting lost. The sooner you finish your book, the faster you can order one and turn the pages. Why are you waiting? Let's do this! ------------------------ This book DOES NOT COVER publishing eBooks or using Kindle Create. ----------------------- "How to Self-Publish a Children's Paperback Picture Book" focuses on publishing a physical paperback picture book that can be shipped directly from (internationally distributed), held in one's hands, given to friends, or sold by the author at events. Published books will sell on to the general public and can be ordered in quantities of one or more for author resale. This process also works for writers who want to affordably publish and distribute physical books with more pages such as a memoir, instruction manual, puzzle & game book, graphic comic book, coloring book, cookbook, end-of-year school highlights, yearbook, or a multi-page novel with no pictures at all, even if the book gets distributed to a limited number of people. For set up, the author is a novice at using Publisher and Word to format PDFs for uploading and wanted to share her publishing experience. If she can do it, you can do it. She distributes hundreds of books during author visits to schools. Other writers have found publishing success using similar writing and multimedia programs they are familiar with, such as Scrivener (for screenplays and large amounts of text), or those in the Adobe family. ---------------------- Related terms and phrases: Publishing a book, How to publish a book, Self-publishing, How to self-publish, How to publish on Amazon, How to publish using Amazon KDP, How to write a picture book, How to write a children's book, How to publish a paperback book, Elementary school author visit, Middle school author visit, High school author visit, Author visits in Long Beach, CA, Author visits in the Los Angeles area

Whereas Volume I of this series investigates the overall structure of children's picture storybooks at the macro level, this volume, Volume II, investigates the very building blocks of picture storybooks at the micro level: the word, the sentence, the scene and the story. We look at the importance of word choice for giving the story meaning and cohesion. We look at ways to change sentence structure to emphasize the information that is important, and to ensure that sentences flow easily from one to another. We look at the scene: how to begin it, how to end it, and how to create the Beats of action-reaction that make up the scene. And finally we look at the story: what types of problems must a character solve? When does a story introduce a problem? And once a problem is intro-duced, how do picture storybooks move from problem to solution? What types of solutions do characters find? Is there any part of a story that occurs after the solution is found? To answer these and other questions is to describe storytelling strategies. We look at enduringly popular children's picture storybooks to see what storytelling strategies they employ.

The picturebook is now recognized as a sophisticated art form that has provided a space for some of the most exciting innovations in the field of children’s literature. This book brings together the work of expert scholars from the UK, the USA and Europe to present original theoretical perspectives and new research on picturebooks and their readers. The authors draw on a variety of disciplines such as art and cultural history, semiotics, philosophy, cultural geography, visual literacy, education and literary theory in order to revisit the question of what a picturebook is, and how the best authors and illustrators meet and exceed artistic, narrative and cultural expectations. The book looks at the socio-historical conditions of different times and countries in which a range of picturebooks have been created, pointing out variations but also highlighting commonalities. It also discusses what the stretching of borders may mean for new generations of readers, and what contemporary children themselves have to say about picturebooks. This book was originally published as a special issue of the New Review of Children’s Literature and Librarianship.

Space And Place In Children S Literature 1789 To The Present

Focusing on questions of space and locale in children’s literature, this collection explores how metaphorical and physical space can create landscapes of power, knowledge, and identity in texts from the early nineteenth century to the present. The collection is comprised of four sections that take up the space between children and adults, the representation of 'real world' places, fantasy travel and locales, and the physical space of the children’s book-as-object. In their essays, the contributors analyze works from a range of sources and traditions by authors such as Sylvia Plath, Maria Edgeworth, Gloria Anzaldúa, Jenny Robson, C.S. Lewis, Elizabeth Knox, and Claude Ponti. While maintaining a focus on how location and spatiality aid in defining the child’s relationship to the world, the essays also address themes of borders, displacement, diaspora, exile, fantasy, gender, history, home-leaving and homecoming, hybridity, mapping, and metatextuality. With an epilogue by Philip Pullman in which he discusses his own relationship to image and locale, this collection is also a valuable resource for understanding the work of this celebrated author of children’s literature.
