Product Description

Getting paid WHILE you promote your children’s book? What sorcery is this? No magic, of course. Many writers consider author visits to be an essential tool in the business of writing for children. Once you’ve figured out how to write a children’s book, it’s time to figure out how to do an author visit. This book offers in-depth information on how children’s writers and illustrators market their books by doing paid author school visits. It answers such questions as:

• How do I set up an author visit?
• How much should I charge?
• How do I find schools that host authors?
• Do I need a contract?
• How do I arrange an advance book sale?
• How do I hold a book signing?
• How do I promote myself as a children’s book author who visits schools?
• Do I need a brochure?
• What should I put on my author website?
• Who arranges the visit?
• Are self-published authors hired to do author visits? (Good news! Yes!)
• What kind of equipment and technology do I need?
• What goes into an author presentation?
• Do I need different programs for different ages?
• How long should the programs be?
• How do I know what to say?
• How do I say it?
• Do I need insurance? If so, where do I buy it?

Whether you self-publish your children’s book or are traditionally published, marketing the book is still on your to-do list. Imagine being able to supplement your children’s book income by visiting schools, doing author visits! It’s the best of both worlds: you’re being paid to promote and sell your books! All while having fun, motivating students to love reading and inspiring young writers to follow their dreams.

Aside from practical insider information and action steps, the book shares the joys, pains, hilarity and strategy of author visits through interviews of more than a dozen authors who have visited countless schools over the years.

Children’s book author Kim Norman has built a successful speaking career, visiting schools around the US and Skyping with students as far away as Hong Kong and South Korea. In this in-depth, how-to book, she entertainingly shares mistakes she has made, the secrets she has learned, and the joys of sharing her books with hundreds of thousands of children over the past dozen years.
