Are you a fiction writer and never been published? Do you write fiction and self publish your own books? Have you found that fiction is not what the books stores are stocking on their shelves now? If the answer is yes, read on.
I am the author of a children’s fiction book and I have been trying to market my book. The easy part was writing my book. The hard part is the marketing.
Since my book is an adventure, mystery that is geared for children’s imagination and enjoyment of reading it is not what the retail people are buying.
The publishers and retail stores want non-fiction or historical novels even for children’s books.
Yes I loved to write my book and all my children’s books that are still unpublished and I am very sorry that I don’t feel the criteria for non-fiction - historical books.
I am afraid for all the children in this world today who find reading boring and time consuming. Who spend all there free time playing electronic games which is definitely more exciting than reading a book. What kind of adults will these children become in this complicated world?
So I say to you the retail people of America. Give the new authors a break. Try to find it in your heart as parents, grandparents let fiction live again and let’s start children reading again.
