You have a story, but you may be wondering what happens now?
At BiblioKid Publishing, we know that there's a lot that's needed in order to publish a book but it's our goal to simplify that process for all our authors. Which is why we break down the publishing process into easy-to-accomplish steps and guide our authors through each as a team.
Our goal is to help you create the book of your dreams and to offer insight and expertise that only a publisher can bring. To do this, your story will go through our 3 step process. Including:
Read the information below the headers to learn more about how we help you with each step of the process. (All of which is included in your publishing contract.)
Before a book can be published, it first needs to be the BEST book it can be. At BiblioKid Publishing, we work with each of our authors to create a children's book that competes with the commercial trade market. (The big publishing houses everyone loves.)
To do this, we use our over 30+ years of traditional publishing experience to help you with -
All books need to be edited. And children's books especially need to be edited by someone who knows how to write a children's book. (Because not all writing is created equal.)
As an author with BiblioKid, you'll be guided through our editing process from the start by working with our award-winning writing coach on a book plan. Then you'll work round-by-round with our editing team to plot, polish, & perfect your story in order to get it ready for illustration.
In children's books, the art is just as important as the text. Which is why it's our goal to help you find the illustrator that's the right fit for your story.
Together, we'll collect illustration samples for the illustrator who fits your vision then have them work with our design team to finish the pages. This includes full sketch reviews, coloring the pages, & final file approval before it's sent to the book designer to finish for print.
They’ve been amazing! I love the positive friendly attitudes, the constructive feedback, and team approach on my book. I like that we can each be open about what we want the book to be and we can work for the book to be the best it can be.
— Katie Purcell, BiblioKid Author of Molly's Big Score
Once the final files are approved, your book is ready to be launched into the world! This is an exciting time, but one that's important to get right. This is why we'll take care of most of the steps for you behind the scenes in order to make sure your book launches successfully on time.
Each book we create will be available as both a hardcover and digital eBook. Created to perfection, all our hardcover books are printed locally in the United States, where they’ll work their magic to give us a high-quality book that competes with major retailers. Once it’s passed our inspection, it’ll be sent to both you and our distribution house to put your story into stores.
We work exclusively with IPG distributors to ensure your book is in as many stores as possible, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble online, and IndieBound. But it doesn’t stop at online distribution. Our sales team will also actively go out every week to pitch your book to libraries, local bookstores, and other shops in both the U.S. and Canada.
Bibliokid was always there for us. It’s been so nice to focus on the book and let their team take care of the rest. While at the same time, we aren’t held down by the company, Bibliokid is very supportive.

The final step in the process is marketing, which is an important step. (After all, it doesn't matter how awesome your book is if no one knows about it.) This is why we help all our authors with the marketing process by giving you tools and planning a custom strategy just for your book.
It’s our mission to ensure you have the most successful book possible and to help give you confidence in your ability to sell your book. To do this, we provide each author with -
Even though you will have a lot of tasks you'll have to complete on your own, we won't leave you to paddle alone. Along with all your assets, we'll also -
OMG! The launch school is a game-changer! (In fact, I need to go take some of the classes again because it was so much information.) It really set me up for success and I can't wait for my book to come out.
