Welcome back to the Children’s Book Marketing Podcast! I’m your host, Micaela S Benn, and today we have an exciting episode in store for you. In season 1, episode 8, we will be diving into the fascinating world of book series and how they can be a game-changer for authors.
Are you considering releasing your children’s book as a series or wondering when is the best time to release the books?
Well, you’re in the right place!
If you’ve ever considered whether to release your children’s book on its own or create from your first book a series of children’s books to follow, then this episode is for you.
Today, we’ll be exploring the benefits of creating book series, ranging from building a loyal fan base to maximizing the potential for merchandise opportunities. We’ll also discuss real-life examples, tips, and strategies for creating and marketing book series that will captivate young readers’ hearts and minds.
So, if you’re ready to take your children’s book to new heights and leave a lasting impact on young readers, then sit back, relax, and let’s dive into episode 8.
I’m a firm believer of the strength that a series has because of its ability to provide more than one glance at the characters, the themes, and the potential for leaving a legacy for a generation of readers.
How do you decide whether a series is for you?
Well, if you want to leverage your writing skills into a body of work that you can self-publish, now is the time to listen up and take notes.
What you need to know in order to decide if a series is the right avenue for you is covered here:
Here’s what you’ll learn:
– 7 reasons why it’s a good idea to create from your initial children’s book a series of books to follow.
