Young adults are in the prime position to write children’s books because they can actually remember what it was like to be a kid. Take Jake Marcionette, for example, who reached the NY Times bestseller list at the age of 12. His books for middle grades are praised for having such a realistic, authentic voice. This book gives the young audience everything they need to know to successfully write and publish a children’s book. From understanding the children’s book market to learning about illustrations and design, this book has it all. Top publishers and writers in the industry — such as Aaron Shepard, Susan Collins Thoms, Fiona Tapp, and more — have lent their expertise to this book to provide an overview of everything that is needed in the process. Also included is a foreword by children’s book author Cathleen Francisco, and an afterword by author, mentor, and entrepreneur Melissa Carter. You will learn what morals and values publishers and readers look for in good children’s books, what you should expect in a publication deal, what material is appropriate for each age range, and how to convey messages in a way that appeals to both parents and children. This book will help you learn how to build a relationship with your editor, what to expect in revisions, and the process of selling your book. Any young adult that is interested in starting any kind of writing career will learn valuable tips and tricks to understanding the publishing market with this conversational, easy-to-read book.

The increasing popularity of online shopping makes Internet retailing a megatrend that cannot be ignored. The collaboration of two co-authors bringing academic rigor and broad consulting experience into the mix, Internet Retail Operations: Integrating Theory and Practice for Managers offers enduring insights on operational issues and principles for the management of internet supply chains. Covering a range of emerging issues supported by a variety of case studies, the book details the evolution of information technology’s role in retail supply chain networks, its impact on supply chain networks, and how this has changed service operations. It addresses information technology in relation to service and retail industries, then explores how supply chain dynamics impact traditional service and retail delivery, the costs involved, and customer satisfaction and loyalty. It includes tables, vignettes, and graphs that make the content practical and relevant. As you will learn, many attempts at internet retail do not succeed, some because they fail to appreciate the fundamentals, others may have simply been ahead of their time. Many years of experimentation and growth lie ahead. Drawing equally on theory, research results, and real-world experience, the book provides strategies for overcoming the challenges of building operations capability in the evolving world of Internet retailing.
