CHATTER FROM THE MUSE

Children's Books

January 4, 2013
As a writer of children's books, I know it is very very hard to find a traditional publisher who will risk an investment in an unknown writer.  We "unknowns" use "POD" publishers or we self publish while we try to find favor with a traditional house.  I have followed the POD path with A Garden! A Garden! and Good Grief! It's Winter!  I frequently read new books.  I admire the good ones and wish I had thought of the best ones.  The poorly written ones - and they are out there,( some even published by big publishing houses) - make me wonder who the author knew.  They are wonderful boosters for my ego. 
 
I think Debbi Kern, my illustrator is absolutely the best.  She also is a great photographer.  I have thought about writing a book that would be illustrated with her photos. 
 
I recently found the perfect photo illustrated book.  If you haven't seen it - find it.  Lost in the Woods, a photographic fantasy, written by Jean Stoick and photo-illustrated by Carl R. Sams II is a must own book.  The words are delicate and poetic and the photo illustrations are absolutely fantastic.  It is a book to be cherished by young and old alike.

It is hard to find a publisher for a new writer but i think today there are few firms which works only with new talents and giving them platform.

Most of children prefer to read such books which contain a child character in them. I hope your books are suitable to read for children.
