Amazon is expanding its children’s publishing division with two new imprints. “Two Lions” will publish picture books, chapter books and middle-grade fiction, while “Skyscape” is aimed at teens.
Should you focus on writing for the children’s book market? As Amazon Children’s Publishing expands with more books for younger kids and teens–this might be a great market. Think picture books.
The expansion could help feed Kindle FreeTime Unlimited, Amazon’s new subscription product for kids. The program, aimed at 3- to 8-year-olds, offers unlimited access to ebooks, movies, TV shows, educational apps and games for a set monthly price (starting at $2.99).
Parents are looking for more and more “kid-friendly” books that they can share with their youngsters, and children have their own kindles now.
