Besides being an award-winning screenwriter and touring comedian, I am going to be adding author to that resume. Children's Books, no less!

Are there any authors here or published folks who know a thing or two about this journey I am about to embark on? I'd love to hit you up and ask a few questions!


PS - That award-winning film I was talking about is available September 17th if anyone is interested: http://www.walmart.com/ip/25139224

that is awesome. A friend of mine has a son who has illustrated several children's books. I will see if I can get you an email address or something.

1. Find a good editor and treat him/her well. I don't know if you are planning to publish the traditional way or whether you are planning on self-publishing, but regardless, having a good editor is one of the most important things *any* author can have.
2. Find 2-3 readers who will point out problems.
3. Self-publish. IMO, traditional publishing is almost as effed-up an industry as higher education.
3. Self-market. Even if you go the traditional publisher route -- unless you are a "name," you're likely to get short shrift from the publisher in marketing your book for you. Get a copy of John Kremer's 1001 Ways to Market Your Books.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Romans 12:2 (NKJV)
