It received a full page book review in the September/October SCBWI newsletter.
It was a door prize at the SCBWI Southern Breeze WIK Conference earlier this month.
It now sits at the tippy top of my book wish list.
“The Giblin Guide to Writing Children’s Books” by James Cross Giblin is a mouthful. It’s also a valuable resource tool for all writers, but especially those who are hoping to break into publishing through nonfiction books. I was surprised to learn that about 75% of what libraries and bookstores carry is nonfiction. In addition, editors, agents, and authors alike confirmed this at WIK, by encouraging those of us who are unpublished to look into the world of nonfiction first.
Given my love of history, this is an option I’m excited to explore in the coming year. If you’ve read this book or published any nonfiction, I’d love to hear your thoughts. But hey, even if you haven’t read it or been published, I’d still love to hear your thoughts!
