Indie publishing, especially of children’s books, is hard. I listen to everything that those who write for adults talk about and try to adjust strategies to the world of children’s literature. And mostly, things don’t translate.
So, I’ve decided to try to bring together those who write for children and are involved with independent publishing or self-publishing.
Indie Kids Books Listserv
The purpose of the group will be to discuss independent or self-publishing as it relates specifically to children’s books: nonfiction or fiction, for readers from birth to 18. We’ll discuss writing, illustrating, publishing and marketing your books. Join the listserv discussion group by sending an email to
The group is just forming–get in on the ground floor!
Pass this along to anyone interested, whether they have books published or are just thinking about it.
