Writing books for children is both art and business. If you dream of becoming a children's author -- or even if you're well on your way -- this handbook can help you in writing sellable stories, getting them published, and promoting your books. 
Topics include common myths about children's writing, children's book categories, elements of successful stories, manuscript format, submission strategies, contract negotiation, the publishing process, career building, and children's writer resources. Also included are specialized subjects such as querying for multiple manuscripts and promoting a first book. 
Read "The Business of Writing for Children" to learn the secrets you might spend years discovering for yourself.
Aaron Shepard is the author of "One-Eye! Two-Eyes! Three-Eyes!", "The Sea King's Daughter," "The Baker's Dozen," and fourteen other picture books, along with several fantasy novellas for middle grades, numerous resources for storytelling and reader's theater, and a graphic novel. His publishers have included Atheneum, Scribners, Clarion, Lothrop, Dial, and HarperCollins, as well as Cricket and Australia's School Magazine. 
Aaron's work has been honored by the American Library Association, the National Council for the Social Studies,  the American Folklore Society, The New York Public Library, and the Bank Street College of Education, and he has been a judge for the Golden Kite Awards of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
