Well, I wasn't all alone. I attended the Highlights Writer's Summer camp in rural Pennsylvania with other writers and professional writers such as Linda Sue Park, Lamar Giles, Anna-Marie Mc Lemore, and more.
I met two literary agents, and they offered to read my work. I also was reminded of the book to find possible agents and publishers.
All I had to do was write query letters to find the right match for my work. This part is much easier said than done for a busy elementary librarian. There are several professional writers out there who are also librarians. But, I just didn't have the time or patience to find a professional "Prince Charming" who would publish and treat my work like Cinderella.
Publishing a book using Kindle Kids' Book Creator is a real makerspace adventure. You are in charge of everything: the artwork, the layout, the marketing, and etc. It's recommended to create a dummy book first to get a sense of the book's flow to create a page turning book. The whole process is a lot of work, but it's also a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to publishing more books on-line, and helping others to do the same.
Take a look at the new cover of my recently published e-book. #writerslife #tlchat #txlachat #picturebook #bookaday pic.twitter.com/F8W3hSNiyz— Tamiko Brown (@booksforkiddos) August 12, 2018
