Children’s Professional Package | Tellwell Publishing

Children's Professional Package

The children's professional package is perfect for those authors who have their own illustrations but require help in polishing and marketing their manuscript. It includes our children's book editing service to address concerns such as age-appropriateness, pace, structure, grammar and usage. It also offers a custom marketing strategy (25–30 pages) that you will use to gain traction with readers, plus a book backgrounder (two-page professionally designed book resume), an essential tool for events and email pitches.
