NWFCC Virtual Book with Nicole Weaver: Day 4

This month I'm hosting Day 4 of Nicole Weaver's Virtual Book Tour for all the children's book authors/illustrators who are part of the October Showcase at the National Writing for Children Center.

Nicole Weaver was born in Port-au-Prince Haiti. She came to the United States when she was ten years old. She is fluent in Creole, French, Spanish and English. She is a veteran teacher of French and Spanish. She is the author of a children’s trilingual picture book, Marie and Her Friend the Sea Turtle. The story is about a Haitian little girl who resided by the beach in Haiti.

Writing Tips from Children's Writer Nicole Weaver

It takes a lot of patience and many revisions to write a marketable children’s book. Never give up on your dreams of becoming a published author. Keep writing and be sure to join a critique group specifically designed for children’s writers. It is very important to get feedback from other authors. No matter how many times you may have read your manuscript, there is always room for revisions.

I also recommend joining an organization like The National Writing For Children Center, where you can get top notch help with your writing. Do not wait until your book is published to start promoting your book.

Nicole will be checking in throughout the day, so please sure to leave Nicole a comment and/or question.

Follow all 7 authors on their 6-day Virtual Book Tours and leave comments and you could win the Giftbox Giveaway from the National Writing for Children Center.
