PW: Two Self-Publishing Stories That Led To Success

Two Originally Self-Published Picture Books Hit Their Strides

“Self-publishing ventures turned into very different publishing experiences than expected for two first-time authors. Jennifer Fosberry and Cheryl Kilodavis, each inspired by one of their own children to pen a picture book, followed divergent paths to get their books into print, yet their publishing stories had similar happy endings when mainstream houses picked up their books. Fosberry’s My Name Is Not Isabella was released by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky in September, and Aladdin published Kilodavis’s My Princess Boy in late December. Here’s a recap of the authors’ respective publishing journeys.”
