Where does one get referrals or recommendations for publicists?
Fran-Victoria Stephens
02:00:45
If you go the traditional publishing route for a book and you have, let's say, four other books that are subsequent books for a series, does the publisher have rights to the additional four books? Or could you, then, self publish the additional four?

Depends on your contract…
Joy Saxton
02:02:36
What has been your best avenue to sell? I know you when over a lot of ways but curious what works best for you…. Like a marketing list, or social media… is there somewhere that’s the biggest hit for you.

May I ask Chris a Q. plese?
Laelia Watt
02:05:42
I have a book that was written by my Great-grandma that was published back in the 50s. The book is no longer in print and the original publisher does not exist now, since it was bought by Harper-Collins in the 70s. Do you think it is possible for my family to get it self-published or better to try and get it published again by a traditional publisher? Of course my great-grandma is dead, and so are my grandparents.

Who does an Author work with to create or draw up contracts for illustrators? Did you create your own contract?
Bridgette Mongeon
02:07:14
Publicist are very expensive. With publicity it is very hard to know what you are getting for that. IF anyone wants to know more about publicity I would be happy to do a workshop on this. I LOVE MARKETING!
Sara Lovely
02:09:20
Yes Bridgette, I’m interested. I’d love to learn from you about Marketing and publicity.
Joy Saxton
02:10:07
Did you write your own educational curriculum to go along with your book or hire someone to do that?
Bridgette Mongeon
02:10:23
Great Sara, contact me It is so much fun.
Fran-Victoria Stephens
02:10:40
Me, too, Bridgette! Please do the workshop. :)

Lynn, there is a really large Facebook group "Children's Book Author's & Illustrators: Publishing, Marketing and Selling". There are a lot of people who seem very familiar with Amazon. You may try posting your question on that page to see if anyone has suggestions.

It is a creative nonfiction barn to house renovation story- so historical east coast architecture interest that still stands today on Long Island. Haha, yes, very complicated question, but your thoughts helped me narrow down where to start. Thank you!
