Weldon Owen Explains How A Book is Born (Infographic)

West coast publisher Weldon Owen created a nifty little infographic (because kids love their infographics) to explain exactly how a book is “born.”

They say:

Here’s the heartwarming, only slightly messy, and roughly 74 percent accurate story of how an idea churns through the publishing process just like—as a publisher we once knew put it—a rat travels through an anaconda. Don’t think too much about that analogy. Just enjoy this flowchart that takes you from a brilliant idea to a best-selling trade book.

That analogy … just, ewww. Anyway, this is pretty informative (and hilarious). I love that when the person who has an idea for a book “is Stephen King, Lady Gaga, or [a] reality show star,” it is automatically “approved for press.”

Kudos, Weldon Owen! Kudos!

  1. I think the goat farm sounds like a good idea. But that be due to intolerance to cows milk. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing.
