Discover the ins and outs of creating and producing children’s books

Award-winning book designer Nick Zelinger, with over 30 years of experience in graphic design, print media, and publishing tackles the challenging task of how to create a children’s book you can be proud of — and sell by the boatload!

In the Art of Children’s Books, he will set the stage for:

  • What to look for in an illustrator.
  • Setting guidelines for you and your artist.
  • The most common mistakes authors make and how to avoid them.
  • Identifying pitfalls to avoid — saving you time, money, and aggravation.
  • How to determine size, fonts, and printer.
  • The challenges and limitations of printing in color.
  • And much more.

Even if you don’t think of yourself as a children’s author, there are lots of takeaways in this session including why adults should be reading children’s books for their own writing.

Nick Zelinger of NZ Graphics joins Dr. Judith Briles and the AuthorU-Your Guide to Book Publishing podcast for an informative and fun hour.
