Pre-Edit Your Manuscript

Edit your manuscript thoroughly before you go to a professional editor. Then you’ll only need a few rounds of professional editing instead of a whole handful, saving you some extra cash.

Hire a Student

Part of self-publishing includes hiring an illustrator, which can be costly if you don't know what to expect. To save money while you self-publish, ask the local college or university if they have any talented artists looking to gain experience. You might be able to find a great illustrator for a lesser cost.

Find a Sponsor

As you prepare to launch your children's book, reach out to local businesses and ask if they’d be willing to sponsor your Launch Party. Finding sponsors is a great way to save money while you self-publish.

Bonus: Avoid Rookie Mistakes by Learning More

One of the best ways to save money while you self-publish your children’s book is by learning as much as you can before you start publishing.

When I published my first children’s book, I made plenty of mistakes along the way, all of which cost me plenty of time & money.

But here's the thing — every mistake I made was avoidable. Now that I know better, I don’t want you to make the same mistakes.

My Children’s Book Masterclass is a tried & true roadmap that will teach you exactly how to write, publish and launch your children’s book.
