Hello, How i got started was i sent my ms to a self-publishing company. They were expensive but they produced a great book for me, it took about 8 months. my second book Gabby For President is being released in April and i used an indie publishing company once again through one of my fb groups for indie writers and that took about a year. if i had the funds available at the time it would have taken less time. trying to get your book published the traditional way just wasn't an option for me. being rejected tends to discourage people. i love to write and i want children to be able to read my words of inspiration. Research til you find whats right for you. the library has good books. good luck to you and never give up on your dream to write if that's what you truly want to do.

Hello -

Congratulations on your success with the publication of children's books.  It's been a life dream of mine to publish a children's book, short story or poetry.  Can you give me some insight as to how you got started?  I am new to these forums and having difficulty tracking my messages so hopefully I'll catch up with you soon!  Best to you and keep marching forward on your third book!

Hello everyone,

I'm a self-published writer of children's picture books.

I just published Giggle A Little Giggle and it's about laughter and ejoying the beauty of nature.

I'm currently writing my third book and my second is being published now.

I love to write for children seeing their eyes light up as they turn the pages and imagine themselves in the story is priceless.

Have an amazing day!!

I am now just getting to read the threads from writers.  I am a writer who has self-published on Amazon for the past few years.  I got so tired of romance novels for the under 30 set.  Then 50 Shades came out and I was done!  I put the story that had been swirling in my head for years on paper during my breaks and lunch at work.  Within three years, I had created a seven volume series!  I titled it Fairy Tales for Grown People.  It is about people over 50, even 60 who are vibrant, badass, and sexual without being skeevy.  I am currently re-editing my series, book by book, and plan to re-publish.  I started a Facebook page and posted photos from the internet of people who remind me of my characters.  I would love to hear from other writers, especially those who write romance novels for the mature crowd.
