My first children's book, Princess Polliwog & the Swing Thief, is due to come out a y week now. I am super excited as this opens new doors in the literary community. Schools and libraries weren't good choices for my paranormal adventure novels. Too many demons and vampires. Probably frowned upon in a school environment.
The one thing I found is the cost per book for author copies surpasses a 80,000 word novel. I didn't expect that. It does make me nervous about selling copies due to price. I have events lined up starting in March. I will have a good idea what the reception is like then.
I have been thinking of doing a classroom reading in my daughter's school, too. With donating a book, that might get parents interested. I am still trying to wrap my head around getting a following. I will just have to wait and see.
Keep hopping everyone!
