I’m Writing a Children’s Book Series

I’m not talking about easy chapter books. I’m talking about books for younger readers.

The other day I told a co worker of mine that we need to collaborate on a kid’s book series. He immediately started brainstorming potential book titles. The first is my favorite. The Piggy who Didn’t Want to be Bacon. 😂 Okay, I haven’t looked it up to see if someone has already written it, but I thought it was hilarious. He then proceeded to come up with several more titles mostly around animals.

Am I really going to start work on this? Probably not. But have you seen what some of those hardcover kid’s books retail for? It’s kind of ridiculous when you see how many pages there are and how few words are written. But hey, people will pay what they’ll pay.

I think I’ve already found an illustrator for my potential new blockbuster series. What do you think?

  2. I really like Children’s books. They are so fun and innocent in this weird, strange and highly polluted world.
    I really think you should go ahead with this.

  3. Why not. There is good money in childrens’ books if you can pull it off. Might be a lot of fun too. I would get a good contract drawn up with your illustrator.

  4. If you decide to do this, I’ll eat my own sock. With ketchup and hot sauce. So there’s some motivation for you.

  5. Well, I was gonna suggest you did a mash-up kids’ book/crime story – Piggy being ‘grilled’ by the cops 🙂 (Sorry!)
    But seriously why not write a kids’ book, if you think the story’s strong enough? It’s worked for Jo Nesbo – best known for his crime books he also wrote Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder and other Dr Proctor books. My son loved them.
    It can work.

  6. Sounds like a Picture Book. Usually around 25 pages long with drawings in every single page. Expensive to print (full color) and illustrate unless you are your own illustrator. Good luck! Love the title!
