Book Publishing -- Is Your Child the Next Best-Selling Author?

Book publishing for children, meaning kids becoming published book authors, is showing great promise as the next opportunity for success through book publishing.

Since 9-year-old book author, Alec Greven's book, "How to Talk to Girls," was released in late November of 2008 by Harper-Collins, it created a wave of interest and awe to adults and children of all ages.

A trend in book publishing for kids is already in motion. We are starting to see more books come out BY KIDS, FOR KIDS, such as McKay Hatch's book, "THE NO CUSSING CLUB," which was recently released and received almost instant interest and recognition. McKay, age 14, has appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Dr. Phil," "The Early Show," "Good Morning America" and many news shows. And already, close to 30,000 kids have formed "No Cussing Clubs" throughout the country and in several countries abroad.

In a recent interview with professional book writer, Robert S. Nahas, he stated, "In a tough economy as the one we are enduring, opportunities such as this one should not be ignored." He was asked: Will it be short-lived? "Maybe. Not likely. Who cares?" Nahas continues, "At present, it's an opportunity. Should we look a gift horse in the mouth or get into action? One thing can be counted on; those who do something now and remain productive can make their mark and set themselves up for a lifetime of great success." R.S. Nahas is the owner of -- a literary services company for aspiring book authors.

Alec Greven already has two more books under his belt: "How to Talk to Moms" and "How to Talk to Dads." Albeit only 9 years of age, no one can question this young man's current success and potential for a lifetime of prosperity.

"This is incredible inspiration for our youth. President Obama's message," Nahas continues, "has been one of HOPE, to look for OPPORTUNITY and CHANGE the way things are, for the better. And no more resounding message has resulted from this historic presidential election than I CAN DO ANYTHING I PUT MYSELF UP TO."

Nahas claims that the secret to success for a child author is to have a great message of hope, inspiration and/or courage and ethical fortitude. Any parent will validate the fact that children have a tendency to buck the helpful guidance of their parents. As far as kids go, peer pressure has always been a major influence to childhood behavior. Sadly, it leans heavily towards the negative, immoral and even illegal end of the scale.

"Books FROM KIDS, TO KIDS is the greatest idea since sliced bread," says Nahas, "when such books offer honest, helpful information to support children in their formative years. For one thing, they can help balance the moral scale, if not tilt it in the favorable direction altogether."

Another secret, Nahas claims, to the success of a child author is to make sure that one's manuscript is professionally written, edited and proofread. Just as important, a solid query letter and a strong book proposal need to be created by a professional writer who specializes in these kinds of documents. They are what will gain interest from agents and publishers. If writing the book is a challenge, so too can you find a reputable professional book writer to help write your child's book.

"The truth is," Nahas continued excitedly, "opportunity awaits ALL CHILDREN who wish to share a worthy message and offer valuable information to their peers. With this wave of book publishing, 'peer pressure' could take on a whole new meaning."

Whether this is a short-lived trend or new venue for book publishing, one can't discount the immediate successes of these two child authors. Will more children make it as well? Time will tell.
