A Step-By-Step Guide On How To Create Your Own Children’s Book
One of Old Mate Media’s main services is helping parents and other creative writers start, create and publish children’s picture and story books, and to bring them to life online and in bookstores. What we’ve discovered through our own life experiences is that making up stories to fascinate our children is something that comes naturally, so what if you could actually make those stories into real books? In fact, what if you could actually make money from them by selling those stories to other parents to read to their children? And what if doing this wasn’t a huge investment?
You don’t have to be an artist. You don’t have to be a writer. You don’t have to be a web developer or a video producer or a distributor. All you need is an idea, and your journey can begin. For a more detailed breakdown of the steps listed below, check our services in the main menu.
This is Your Journey
For full transparency, we’ve broken the production of children’s book down into each component so that you can understand the process and request a quote specific to your needs. Before we start:
So You Have An Idea for Children’s Book
Children’s stories can be incredibly simplistic, or wonderfully detailed. They can be obviously educational or theatrically fantastical. Some rhyme perfectly, and others jump around erratically. There are no rules. We find a good place to start is just to talk to your child and listen to the way they describe our world. Now you have an idea; begin by jotting it down. Turn that idea into sentences that set up that idea, carry through that idea, and conclude that idea. Break those sentences up into pages. Now you have a story.
