Picture Books (PB) / Board Book Sales
« Last post by tenisha-bernal on July 08, 2022, 03:49 PM »
Hi Everyone,

My debut board book was published this past May and since this is my first book in the industry everything is completely new for me.

I’m wondering how many sales board book authors / illustrators typically see for their first book? I can view my sales weekly but I have no idea if the number I’m seeing is really good, really low, or somewhere in between? I’m hoping my book series get picked up but that will obviously depend on my sales. So I’m just wondering if anyone is or has been in the same boat as me and has some insight?

Thanks,
Tenisha

Hi Pearl,

Have you reached out to Judith, our regional critique coordinator? She might be able to get you resources or connect you with others who are working on picture book manuscripts.  Here's the link to our Nebraska Critique info page.

Best of luck!

Hello Trevor,
                      I am looking for a critique partner too. I am writing a children's picture book and need feedback rather sooner so please let me know. Thank you!

Nancy, hi-low books have a low (ie: younger) reading level, but are high-interest books meant to grab the attention of older kids who aren't reading at their age level yet.  (It would be easier to understand if they'd call them "high-low" books.)

Am interested in the group.   Have written many preK - 4 grade stories with number themes/elements.  Some stories minus the numbers.
 Would like to see them out in the world.

Anyone, anything?! Starting to wonder if I should consider sending my story out for Halloween-y contests/etc...
