Breaking into new markets are tough in today’s times, particularly for writers and businesses who provide product and content for children’s and young adult markets.

Right now, according to Publisher’s Weekly, Children’s books are steadily on the rise closely followed by Early Reader and the Middle Grade Categories. To help new and existing writers navigate the movements in today’s publishing culture, we’ve compiled a few articles to help equip you to be in the know of what to do to market your books. Since we understand that good marketing not only needs high quality content, but context to command the loyalty of your readers and buyers, we’ve also encourage you to read “Five Steps to Improve Your Marketing to Generation-Y” below.
