The Dark Side of Publishing for Children: The 1st Roadblock


These posts are aimed at those of you who have an interest in the inner workings of publishing for children. While highly rewarding, it’s not all glitz and glamor. I intend to infuse the good with the bad to give you an accurate look behind the scenes, not to deter you, but to give you a heads up so that you can be better prepared when you give it a go.


Notice how I capitalized and placed emphasis on that? That’s because I AM, regardless of what others said, say, or will say. I tell you that because your interest in reading this is likely a result of your own desire to write for children. I commend you. When done right, it’s certainly far more difficult than the uninformed realize, but, it is attainable.

Provided you can get past this 1st roadblock.
