The update to their course structure coincides with the latest figures from IBISWorld. They revealed that the children’s book market in the US is now worth $2.6 billion, witnessing an average growth rate of 3.3% every year for the past five years.
However, as J.J. Fast Publishing can attest, many up-and-coming writers who are seeking to self-publish have their work rejected because it fails to meet the exacting publishing and formatting specifications required by top-selling platforms like Amazon, and by their professional book-printing creation service, Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP).
As such, they are now integrating a subsection on trim amount guidance into their comprehensive online book-selling courses.
Beginning with the absolute basics, J.J. Fast Publishing’s course will introduce writers to key terminology like trim size and bleed, which may be unfamiliar to those authors who are more word and story-focused. Through the course, writers will also be introduced to the most standard size formats utilized by KDP for both picture books and chapter books and taught how to conform their project to these specs.
The publishing advice platform stresses that because KDP works with a margin of shift, writers must set their trim size accordingly and submit their final book with a mandatory bleed for the cover art.
The group’s online course is designed to take novice writers to fully fledged professionals within a short period. They also cover story idea generation, sourcing captivating illustrations, title development, targeting age ranges, marketing strategies and more.
J.J. Fast Publishing was founded by Jay Boyer, a passionate children’s author and publisher who wants to share his tips for success with aspiring amateur writers. He believes that with the right tools, anyone can have an Amazon bestseller.
A spokesperson for the platform said, “We can help you tap into a proven formula that will allow you publish your first children’s book through Amazon in just 48 hours.”
