How to Independently Publish Your Children’s Book 

Presented by Sheri Fink

Join the St. Louis Publishers Association on May 12 and learn “How to Independently Publish Your Children’s Book”, presented by #1 best-selling children’s author Sheri Fink. Discover how you can go from simply having an idea, to believing in that idea and taking the next step of starting your children’s book. She’ll offer tips on how to focus your narrative and how to stay motivated and encouraged throughout the writing process.

Sheri will also cover aspects of the illustration process including how to find, vet, and hire an illustrator, along with the author-illustrator relationship and how to pull all the different elements together to get ready for publishing. She’ll share strategies on how you can effectively and affordably publish your children’s book as an independent author. Sheri will also help you choose the best indie publishing path based on your unique goals, using the approach she’s used for her nine award-winning children’s books.

Sheri Fink is an inspirational speaker, #1 best-selling author, and president of Whimsical World. She is best known for her beloved children's books, including The Little Rose and The Little Unicorn. Her mission is to inspire, delight, and educate children of all ages while planting seeds of self-esteem and high achievement.
