Children’s Writers – Budget for Self-Publishing

Children’s Writers – Budget for Self-Publishing

In theory, by doing it all yourself, you could get your children’s book self-published by spending next to nothing. But look at it realistically. You do want a professional looking book that has been illustrated, edited and formatted properly and will reach out to the maximum number of potential readers. If you do want your book to be competitive in the marketplace, you will need to get some professional help and allocate at least a few thousand dollars to the venture.

Reasons to Spend on Self-Publishing

The average earnings of self-published authors are $10,000 a year (according to a recent survey). However, it is also true that at least half of the self-publishers earn $500 or less.

The difference clearly lies in the quality of the product on sale. So, while the writers are getting more proficient at getting books out in the markets, the readers are becoming equally savvy at gauging the quality of the book. So, writers have to focus on visibility and quality of the product they are offering their readers. For a book’s success, get experts and services to bring out a splendid product which is backed by good marketing. To get this done, you don’t need to spend big, just spend smart. Make sure that you get the bang for your buck.

Budgets for Self-Publishing

The most wonderful thing about self-publishing is that you are in charge. Do your research, check out all the options available to you and make your choices. Decide on the bits that you can do yourself and the parts for which you need professional services. Get an estimate on how much it will cost to avail of services like editing, book cover, layouts and marketing. After that determine the cost of self-publishing and decide on the budget for your children’s book.
