We are kickstarting our next project, The Circus! I heard about this new and fantastic way to raise funds for your projects at the St. Albans Film Festival Awards Party at Havanna.
Bud & Roo will have some company this time on their Spectacular Adventure! Comodo the bird and Hux the Ringmaster. I wonder what they are going to find?
The wait is finally over! The book will be shipped over night from London’s Premier Print Group- keeping it local and keeping it real.
What exciting news to hear! I will post out some pictures this weekend with Suzy and I holding the book. We have a press release and photoshoot organised for January so stay tuned!
Meet the protagonists of the book, Bud & Roo’s Spectacular Adventures. Bud is a Beagle. He is independent, great at digging and very handsome. Rosie Roo is a Border Collie. She is smart and sassy. She is always up for an adventure.
Bud & Roo are friends (well, most of the time- Rosie Roo likes to protect her stick). Bud digs for artifacts and Rosie Roo joins him on the path to discovery where the item came from. They are happy doggies and are inspired by our own pets at home.
Yes, this is true. Anyone can write a children’s book. Madonna, Jay Leno, Whoopi Goldberg and yes, even John Travolta. But what makes yours so special? http://www.pastemagazine.com/blogs/lists/2011/06/celebrities-who-have-written-children-books.html
Find a target audience. You will see that many of these famous people have a target of whom they want to reach. That is a good place to start. Bud & Roo’s Spectacular Adventures is focused on the 0-5 age group or as some book distributors such as The Guardian Book Shop like to label it as 7 and under.
After you find out your target audience go find out what they are reading and see what they’re interested in. The age group whom you target your children’s book is your worst critic.
Anyone can write a children’s book. However, whether or not it’s good or not is another question. It has to be interesting to the targeted audience you are marketing it to as well as have a good platform to be able to sell.
