Children's Books

Whether you approach children’s book publishers directly or self-publish, publishing a children’s book for sale is notoriously challenging. But as successful publishers of children’s books know, the rewards can be considerable for anyone who cracks this ultra-competitive market. And of course, even if you only publish for pleasure, there’s priceless satisfaction from fulfilling lifelong ambitions. Whether you want to sell your book or simply distribute a few copies to friends and family, our advice and services can make your book a reality.

How to Publish a Children's Book

As with any publishing project, successful children’s books need engaging writing and irresistible characters that children can relate to. Thorough editing and proofing is essential too, as is our guidance on other publishing services such as these:

•   Specialist children’s book illustration
•   Graphic design
•   Careful selection of the right book format
•   Suitable printing processes and print finishing

As our existing customers know, having access to all of these through one experienced self-publishing partner is a key step towards becoming established as a children’s writer.

Publishing a children’s book: promotion is everything

Simply writing, editing and printing a volume isn't the end of the process for publishing children’s books. You’ll face important distribution decisions and many authors who want to sell their book underestimate the promotional work required. Fortunately, for books that have been edited professionally, The Choir Press can guide you to help your book get the publicity it deserves.

Choosing Between Children’s Book Publishers

Whether you plan to sell in volume or distribute small quantities privately, choosing the most suitable self-publishing partner is essential. Look for the following:

•  Experience and knowledge of how to publish a children’s book
•  The production knowledge to give you a robust book
•  A full range of self-publishing services
•  Friendly, personalised service from first contact to after-sales support

What Our Customers Think

" The whole experience of working with The Choir Press, from early advice and guidance through each stage of production, was a genuine pleasure."

Leslie Hampson. Author The Big Cheese

We pay royalties on print on demand books monthly and because the royalty is calculated by using the trade cost of printing your book, you will receive a bigger royalty from us than under almost any other publishing arrangement.

Unlike some publishing companies, we offer a personal service. You will always be dealing with a named personal contact.
