Children's TRADITIONAL PACKAGE

$ 8,499

The children’s traditional package is an all-out experience for children’s book authors! You get the support of a five-person team – a project manager, graphic designer, editor, proofreader, and marketing consultant. We included our full editorial and marketing services to make your book the absolute best it can be. This includes a content edit, copy edit, and final proofread to take place once design is complete. With the children’s traditional package, we also go the extra mile and execute children’s marketing services on your behalf. That means we will create the resources you will need to effectively pitch your book to schools and other organizations such as activity pages, worksheets, colouring pages, promotional materials, graphics, and a website among other resources. We also guarantee a media interview in a children’s publication.
