Top 3 tips for aspiring children’s authors

Aspiring authors who are thinking they would like to write for children should start by reading a bunch of picture books. There are lots of ideas that could lead to an endearing story, but nothing will become published unless you write it! In today’s international publishing climate, debut authors should: 1. Consider not rhyming as it limits chances of getting published, especially by the larger international publishing house. 2. Don't get your story illustrated, as the publisher will choose the illustrator for you, as well as the size and look of the book. 3. Before you submit it to publishers, you should show it to real kids to get an idea if it suits the modern readership. Most of all, you’ll never know if you never try and you should never die with a book still inside you.
