Children's book publishing is one of the most specialized publishing genres-and one of the most difficult for new authors to break into. Potential authors today don't just want to know how to write or illustrate picture books; they want to know how to become the next JK Rowling! With the successes of series such as Harry Potter and Lemony Snicket, as well as the visual appeal of picture books, authors and illustrators today are clamoring to get involved and often caught in an unknown world of agents, rights, subrights and licensing potential. The Complete Idiot's GuideR to Publishing Children's Books, Second Edition , is a completely updated primer, and expert author Harold Underdown gives potential authors - and illustrators - tips, inside information, and detailed instructions on everything from how to prepare a proposal or query to how to get an agent or artists rep. Detailing the differences between picture books, juvenile fiction, and young adult novels, this book will also cover branding, series development, and licensing.
