Can You Make a Living as a Children's Book Author?
If you are like most children’s book writers, I’m guessing you would love your writing work to be your full-time job.
And if you are like most children’s book writers, I’m guessing your books are not making enough money for you to earn a comfortable income.
Whether you are published or pre-published, most children’s writers know, the dream of writing books for kids doesn’t come with fame and fortune.
Now, my reason for wanting to write for children was never motivated by a dream for fame and riches. It was for the pure joy of it, for the chance to write the stories I wished existed when I was a child, and even for my own children today.
But it would certainly be nice if the dream could come with a living wage.
And that has not been the case. At all.
