The launch of the latest version of ‘How To Write A Bestselling Children’s Book’ is available to download without charge from the J.J. Fast Publishing website. The guide is authored by renowned children’s literature and publishing expert Jay Boyer and gives readers an actionable plan to generate thousands of dollars in Amazon royalties every month.

According to the Alliance of Independent Authors, self-published writers now account for over 30% of all e-book sales in the biggest English language markets. With the advent of the Kindle in 2007 and Amazon’s revolutionary Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform, digital media has forever changed accessibility for authors and audiences alike. KDP paid over a quarter of a billion dollars to independent writers in 2019 alone.

The ebook explains the process for selecting the correct trim size for children’s books. Trim size dictates how large the print will be and thus how many words will fit onto a page, affecting readability, clarity, and engaging young readers and parents alike. Jay explains how to use KDP software to select the correct size for both chapter and picture books.

The guide also covers the importance of incorporating the correct bleed margin. In traditional physical print formats and digital publishing, bleed dictates to what extent text and images stretch to the margins of the page. Jay recommends adding an eighth of an inch to page width and a quarter of an inch to the page height to ensure all text and images are rendered correctly for a professional look.
