GUEST-POST

The Process of Writing a Children’s Book Series

by Alysson Foti Bourque

For this series, I plan on releasing a new book each year. This requires me to follow a strict timeline to make sure I accomplish that.

December/January/February— I am writing the script of the subsequent book of the Alycat series. I usually have an idea of what the next book will be about based on current events, past memories, and paying close attention to the conversations of my own children for ideas.

March/April—During these two months, I work closely with my publisher’s project manager on edits, storyboard placement, dedication and title page, back cover blurb, and character and illustration descriptions.

May/June—During this final publishing stage, I finalize the illustrations and storyboard placement and approve the final PDF. Then it’s sent off to the printer.

July/August—The marketing and preparation stage begins during these months as I prepare for the official release. This involves creating signage, book swag, and securing details for the book launch party.  Luckily, my publisher handles distribution and sales through bookstores and I handle author visit sales.

September/October/November—The forthcoming book will be released during this time and I begin author visits and book signings.

From start to finish, it is exciting, nerve-wracking, and sometimes tiresome. I am so grateful to my publisher, Mascot Books, for helping me stay organized.
