Everyone loves a children's book. And many dream about writing one. But is it actually possible for an unpublished writer - armed with a good story idea and a love of kids - to write, sell, publish, and promote a book? Yes, it is! Veteran children's book publishing executive and author Lisa Rojany Buccieri and author Peter Economy show you how, in their incredibly useful 2005 first edition of "Writing Children's Books For Dummies[registered]". Buccieri and Economy begin by explaining the basics of the children's book business, from the nuts and bolts of the various formats and genres - with helpful illustrations to aid you - to the intricacies of the book publishing market, a list of recent award-winning books, and a first peek into the particular mind set that writing children's books requires. (Hint: Throw out the adult rules, and think like a kid!).Then the authors dive into the actual writing process itself, with tips on setting up a workspace, brainstorming great book ideas, researching the subject you decide on, even speaking with the sorts of kids you hope will eventually read the book.

They show you how to create compelling characters and develop them in the manuscript; how to outline and write a plot "arc" of conflict, change, and resolution; how to master the difficult art of writing dialogue; and how to use active (rather than passive) language to keep your story moving along and interesting to young minds. Or, if you're planning to write a creative nonfiction children's book-on a topic such as science, nature, or a historical figure, for example - the authors include a chapter on this, too. Ready, set, go...it's time to sit down and write!Once you've finished your book, however, the process has only begun. Now you will refine, submit, and hopefully sell your manuscript. Here again, the authors of "Writing Children's Books For Dummies" come through for you. They deliver solid advice on hiring an illustrator-or not; participating in workshops and conferences to learn the business and hone a story; finding an agent; and, finally, submitting the manuscript to publishers and - if you are successful-signing a contract.

Along the way, the authors also include tips on handling rejection; a quick primer on the various editors in publishing houses (and how they work to make your book its best); and making a plan to publicize the book, including hiring a publicist if necessary.Like all For Dummies[registered] books, "Writing Children's Books For Dummies" highlights "The Part of Tens," which includes the "Ten Best Ways to Promote Your Story" and "More Than Ten Great Sources for Storylines". And the ever-helpful Cheat Sheet includes: tips for editing your children's book manuscript, children's book no-no's, twelve commandments for writing younger children's books, and tips on promotion. From setting down that first word on paper to doing a successful publicity tour, "Writing Children's Books For Dummies" gives you the confidence and the insiders' know-how to write and sell the story you've always wanted to write.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Awesome Book! 15. November 2013
Von G. L. Doty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have written, recorded and toured numerous children's musicals. I have been asked to re-released them. I decided, instead, to turn them into children's books. I checked numerous books out of the library on writing children's books only to be discouraged by the content over and over again - until I found this one. In every respect, this book runs circles around any other on this topic. After renewing it at the Library five times I finally knew I had to buy one for my studio. I absolutely love the "For Dummies" books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I'M VERY SURPRISE BY THIS BOOK 13. März 2013
Von STAR CROSS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have to say that this book took me by surprise. While is true that the tittle was silly and condescending for the reader. It knocks me out; it is an awesome book, full of practical techniques, pictures, ideas and tips. I highly recommend this book for anyone immerging in the creative process of writing and illustrating children books. I was amazed how this book is so user friendly and easy to read. Full speed ahead and get your own copy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good read, great help! 29. Juni 2010
Von Flex 5 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This book covers it all if you are a first time children's book writer. I thought I was going along pretty good on my own, but this book pointed out my errors and things that I looked over entirely. Now I'm more confident in my work and I can see and read the difference from my original draft to the draft I've rewritten with the aid of this book. Excellent reference tool. The authors covered it all. I'll recommend to anyone brave enough to take a stab at writing children's books.
