World Class Children's Book Publishing and Creation

Content from Willy Book 2Old Mate Media has a passion for Children’s Picture Books. Not only do we create our own original titles – including the famous Wild Imagination of Willy Nilly series – but we also help aspiring authors self-publish. We have completed a handy guide for those getting started, but we also encourage you to check out Services menu. It includes a tonne of handy tips, and shows how we can plug into the process where we’re needed. Old Mate Media is run by parents, and our passion for Children’s Books started with our kids. If you too want to feel the thrill of creating something your children can read, we can help. And who knows, perhaps you will make a tidy little income selling it to other parents around the world.

How To Create Your Own Children's Book

ebooks vs books debate with Willy Nilly

One of Old Mate Media’s specialities is helping parents and other creative writers bring their stories to life. 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. Just follow our step-by-step guide.
