Infographic: The life cycle of a book

Here’s a nifty infographic that shows the life cycle of a book.

You’ll find it at, a site for young publishing professionals. I subscribe to it for the concise industry news it shares each week.

Along with the infographic, the Cycle page offers videos of professionals, each describing a part of the life cycle. I think you’ll enjoy the “Writer” video as author Adam Gidwitz tells how he came to write his children’s book, A Tale Dark & Grimm.

This is a nice visual, one you might want to print out and keep at hand. It puts things in perspective as you labor away on your part of the cycle. You can download it at the site. It’s in the sidebar; click on the graphic.
