A member of SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) for many years, I love children’s books. I began researching self-publishing several years ago and realized that none of the self-publishing guides covered topics specific to children’s books. Wanting to learn everything that I’d need to self-publish a children’s book, I interviewed many children’s-authors-turned-publishers and collected the best advice into Could You, Should You Self-Publish a Picture Book? Filling a niche need, I’ve gotten many heart-warming reviews of the book. I publish an updated version every couple years, but to offer a more ongoing dialog, I’ve just begun a blog, Self-Publishing, Children’s Books, and Me — The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, of All Three.

I hope you enjoy Could You, Should You Self-Publish a Picture Book? and find it useful. Write to me and let me know about your publishing journey!
