You have a great book idea, or better yet – you’ve just completed your rough first manuscript. Congratulations! This undoubtedly pain-staking labor of love is your baby. But there’s about another year of hard work ahead of you to get your manuscript into readers hands and important questions you must consider.
These days, FOMO applies not only to the average person scrolling through social media, but to many businesses who are eager to do everything and be everywhere. But a well thought out, targeted business plan for your book is crucial to its success. Should my book be published in print, digital and audio to satisfy a wider audience? Should I publish as soon as possible to get my book out there? Should I print a low quantity because it’s my first print run? Should I print in China because it’s cheaper? You may be inclined to answer yes, when quite often the answer to these questions is no.
With 8 years of experience in the book publishing industry, Innovation Activators is here to help you balance important business considerations including how to navigate editing, copy-editing, proofreading, legal-vetting, producing/printing, promotion and retail distribution in order to bring your book to market successfully. Let’s work together to ensure the highest quality for your book.
OUR IN-HOUSE BABY: CARIBBEAN BABY PRODUCTS
IA is committed to innovative projects that help support Caribbean economic growth. We were looking for a creative idea that focused on building pride in our own culture starting from infancy to help balance the ever-increasing appetite for foreign culture.
The Caribbean Baby brand is an in-house collaboration between the author and illustrator, Tanya Mongroo and Innovation Activators. We kicked off the project in 2016 and officially registered Caribbean Baby Products Limited in 2018.
The brand was launched with content from Trinidad and Tobago and will continue to expand up the islands. The road towards the brand’s launch date of December 1, 2018 was certainly hectic but rewarding as we supported the author through all the additional checks and balances needed when it comes to publishing children’s educational books in the Caribbean.
Caribbean Baby is a provider of fun, familiar books and toys for kids living in the Caribbean or of Caribbean heritage. From babies and toddlers to early readers, Caribbean Baby wants to encourage pride in Caribbean culture with all local content.
From ABCs to flash cards to books for young readers, we want to encourage pride in local content from infancy. The benefits of this can have a long-lasting impact on children’s development, and their appreciation of their Caribbean heritage.
