As an author of children’s books, I was eager to read Jane R. Wood’s work, Schools: A Niche Market for Authors. Jane lays everything out from what to include in the book, extra materials to create alongside the book, promoting your work and yourself to schools, creating brochures and presentations for students and other groups, and how to make money doing it. Ms. Wood gives examples of her own work throughout to make it easier. If you are going to promote yourself to a school, everything you need is bundled up in this one book. You can’t ask for anything better than that. The table of contents is well formatted so you can easily look up a specific topic/section again. Great resource for authors.
When I read Schools: A Niche Market for Authors by former teacher and current author Jane R. Wood, I was very impressed with the quality and quantity of the help provided. There are a lot of “author self-help” books out there that are 75% fluff and 25% content. (I know, I have read them.) Ms. Wood not only delivers a book totally jam-packed with applicable information, she also makes it interesting by giving examples of things that did or didn’t work in her own experience. Thus, Schools: A Niche Market for Authors is not only helpful, but interesting as well. I especially appreciated the bullet point to-do lists in almost every chapter, detailing what exactly to include in a presentation or brochure or other such thing. I also appreciated the websites included in the resource area of the book. All in all, I thought this was a great work and will definitely use suggestions from Jane for future kids' books.
