Thinking of Finding a Publisher? Try SBPRA…

My publisher, SBPRA, just shared a letter to potential authors, which I am now sharing with anyone interested.  For the record, SBPRA published my first children’s book, Santa’s Birthday Gift, in 2009 – and has published all my subsequent 14 books which have now won 98 Awards (and counting). If anyone is interested in having a potential book evaluated, please consider this offer..

“Hi there! My name is Lynn Eddy and I am the Contract Manager at Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency (SBPRA). I’ve been with the company for 16 years and have seen the industry change and grow so we’ve adjusted our publishing contracts to fit what authors like you need.

We know it’s important to have your book listed on not just Amazon but also Barnes and Noble, Target, Waterstones, Chapters/Indigo, and Wal-Mart.

We know it’s important to give readers options as we’ve seen eBook sales hitting record numbers since the start of the pandemic with no slowdown in sight so we’ve started offering Kindle in contracts so authors can benefit from the most sales possible.

We know audiobooks are also hugely popular now and we have recently started an audiobook division. We are excited to bring this option to our authors in the most affordable way.

We have always had editing services, professional layout and cover designs, complementary author webpages and press releases, but we want to go the extra mile for you so that we can fill all of your publishing needs.

We know it’s important for authors to have a single point of contact throughout the publishing process and I have proudly been that person for hundreds of authors.

I’d like to look over your manuscript to see if we’d be a good fit for as your publisher. Could you please send it to me in a Word document? I will reply with a critique of your work and hopefully a contract offer.

I look forward to seeing your book!

Sincerely,

Lynn Eddy

The Golden Rule Coloring Book Wins 2nd Award – A Finalist in the Prestigious Feathered Quill Awards

So thrilled to share that The Golden Rule Coloring Book has won a Finalist Award in the Poetry category in the prestigious Feathered Quill Literary Awards.

The Feathered Quill Book Awards Judges’ Comments were awesome!!

JUDGES’ COMMENTS: 

– Covers: front cover – gorgeous colors / a literal rainbow and the images of each child are adorable. Back cover – a lot of words for the back cover make it hard to read, but all text there is correct and explains well the subject of the book

– Content: this is an excellent way to teach kids the Golden Rule. Not only is the rhyming story fun and easy to read, but by allowing kids pages they can color, they not only learn but participate

– Editing, spelling, grammar – clean, good job

– this book takes on the scary issue of bullying and teaches kids in a light-hearted creative way how to deal with tough things.

This is the second award for The Golden Rule Coloring Book, having also received an Honorable Mention in the Royal Dragonfly Awards for Children’s Activity Books.
