WHO WE ARE
THE FULL STORY
You have spent time fine-tuning your stories and illustrations. You have studied the children’s book literature industry and are ready to make your dreams come true on your terms! That is where we come in.
Bookling Media exists to produce high quality children’s books. Children deserve to have well-written, beautifully illustrated, and professionally produced literature, even if it strays from the conventional publishing structure. Professional writing coaches, editors, book designers, typographers, marketing, and printing liaisons are integrated into the book making process at Bookling Media. These services can be fine-tuned to what you, the author/illustrator needs.
In the end, you have a hand in the game- you choose Bookling Media with an entrepreneurial spirit and are involved in every part of the publishing process.
As each “bookling” is born, you, the author/illustrator, own the full rights to your creation and can have marketing experts from Bookling Media help you find success in the market, leading to greater profitability than would typically be possible with a traditional publishing experience.
Bookling Media helps launch a pre-sale campaign to cover the initial costs of publication. With this model, you do not pay up-front fees to Bookling Media to publish your book. Instead, the consulting services, printing, and logistics, are covered by the proceeds of the pre-sale campaign. The remaining profits and inventory are owned by you!
In addition, Bookling Media publishes each book under our ISBN and Library of Congress number as a typical publisher would. This frees you, the author/illustrator, from having to create your own independent publishing company.
This is your book. Bookling Media is a facilitator, providing a team of book producers to make your book the way you want. We are not a pay-to-play or a vanity publisher, and will not accept money to publish your book. Bookling Media acknowledges this as an entrepreneurial risk and invests in the project through the pre-sale launch. The printing of your book is determined by pre-sale orders and your motivation!
WHY THIS FORMAT
After struggling to find a publishing house that fully considered the intellectual property rights of the author/illustrator, I set out to reinvent the children’s book publishing format. As a stay-at-home mother and portrait artist, working on my children’s books late into the night, I decided that my time and sacrifice was worth fighting for. I was going to stay in control of my stories, my illustrations, and own their success.
"Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child,
Listen to the DON'TS
Listen to the SHOULDN'TS
The IMPOSSIBLES, the WON'TS
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me -
Anything can happen, child,
Anything can be."
