How to Publish a picture book – traditional or self-publish?


Lots of people ask me about writing a picture book. It’s just for kids, so it must be easy, right? lol

Honestly, get yourself a lottery ticket, you have more chance of becoming rich with that! But if you really want to publish your picture book carry on watching.

It takes an inordinate amount of luck to have a best seller and a huge amount of work to make any sort of living writing picture books . Author incomes have halved in the last 20 years – really!

But you may just want to have a few copies of your book for your family, which is great. These thoughts apply to you to as the person who wants to embark on a career. Any questions? put the in the comments box and maybe you will inspire a new video?!
