Thanks! Share it with your friends!


In today’s video, I’ll be featuring my new children’s book: “The Adventures of the Gween Gwob: There’s No Place Like Home!” I used a bunch of Adobe programs, like InDesign, Illustrator, and After Effects, so If you have any additional questions about those also, just ask!

Available on Amazon! – http://a.co/6KA4ryT

Do all your pages need to be from the same file?

This is such a fun and easy explanation about how to publish through Amazon. I have several Learn to draw tutorial books on there, but I am about to begin publishing an entire series of Children's picture books and am considering Createspace again, however I felt that the pages were great for tutorials but wasn't sure about childrens picture books. Your books look fantastic! I love the beautiful glossy and thick pages, please could you tell me which option you selected for the pages.

Brista — May I take advantage of your generous nature with a few more questions? My illustrator and I may be overthinking the whole thing.
1. File size – does amazon charge for hosting a large file – 6 Mg, for example? We can’t find this info on the KDP site.
2. Do you always size your digital files for the 10 Kindle.”
3. Are the specs for your illustrations different for your ebook vs. your print book.
4. If your book was out of print on Amazon, you must be pre-printing vs. print-on-demand. Who is printing it?
Thank you very much!

Hi! What was the cost for putting the book on amazon? Did you have to order a minimum amount?

Maggie Neck says:

Wow, I am super impressed by your repsonses to all of these comments (even questions answered in the video haha) and it was very helpful to read them! I am wondering if approaching publishers or self-publishing is the best route for me at his point with my first children’s book. Did you feel like the $ was more or less than you expected going in? If you had to do it over again, and with your future books, will you continue to self-publish or do you want to eventually end up on shelves in stores?

David Gregory says:

Hi! Thanks for the video! Very useful 🙂 How do i add a back cover?

Jeffrey Webster says:

Great video for a newbie. Thank you, Brista! I'm excited about getting ready to publish my first picture book. I noticed that the "Gween Gwob" is not longer available in print on Amazon. Was that not as profitable as the Kindle version? What was your price for the print version? Thank you for being so generous with your time, talent, and knowledge!
