The road to children’s book publishing has many twists and turns and obstacles along the way. Fortunately there are established authors, and editors, willing to help less-experienced writers achieve publication. Among them is Emma D. Dryden of Drydenbks, editor of nearly 500 children’s books and currently a freelance consultant. Recently she dispensed her advice in an interview with Children’s Book Insider publisher Laura Backes, available in the following videos.
In Part One, Emma reveals how to succeed in the current publishing climate. In Part Two, Emma talks about the latest publishing trends, and how authors can connect with teens and tweens. In Part Three, she discusses the best business practices of today’s aspiring authors, why every author needs an editor, and what editors can do for you. (From the CBI website.)
