Publishing Process – Interviews

How children’s books have been created, and their publishing journey

Every traditionally published book has been a team creation, though each person involved in the process will have considered it ‘my book’. The journey of most of my own books is revealed in the description of each one in All My Books, but I hope you will enjoy discovering the complexities, pains and pleasures of the publishing industry from a wide range of editors, publishers, agents, designers, production directors, marketing professionals, authors, illustrators, printers and publicists.

Like the rest of this websitde, this new section started in February 2022, will grow. Whatever role you have played in your team, do you have a published children’s book for which I can include an interview with you and another member? Please contact me!

I hope you will enjoy…
