Magazine sources are a great way to get visibility on and off social media. I normally Google magazines based upon my targeted audience but this time I wanted to reach everyone I could get my book in the hands of. So, every Grandmother, Pop-Pop (Granddad) Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Auntie, Uncle, Cousin who knows of a child are who I want to reach.
After researching a few sites to find magazines I was quite exhausted and was ready to go crazy and then... Where to?
Here is their partial overview:
It Algives anyone with digitally bound content the ability to upload and distribute their publications worldwide. In just minutes. And as often as they’d like.
Each day, more than 20,000 newly uploaded publications become instantly available to active readers around the world who use Issuu’s site and mobile apps to discover and engage with what they love, from magazines, newspapers, and portfolios, to catalogs, DIY guides, community programs and more.
Yes, they said it...not me." 20,000 new publications..." Hmmm, I am bound to reach at least one writer for every 20 or so. I comb through a few publications and I get an idea. 1st I gather my media kit and give it a once-over.
I even uploaded it to Issuu and it gave me a public flip-page document with its own personal shareable link. This is a plus because it's free publicity that will also show up in the search engine. I guess that's another plus.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Santa Clara, California – November 01, 2018. It’s not so easy finding a children’s book painting a positive picture of little girls of color that are relatable to ALL children until now.
Children can now take a journey with Lil’ Julia B in her first release Julia Bops to the Beat; in the series, Julia Learns, Knows and Grows. In November 2018. It is the start of someone remarkable.
Written by PB&J, Julia Bops to the Beat is the start of a continuous series focusing on the growing up of Lil’ Julia B.
Children will experience her firsts, bests, and worsts. Julia shares how she deals with growing up, allowing children to see that they are not alone. But, like with all journeys, the best get better with work.
PB&J decided it was time little girls of color get a chance to share their experiences and be placed in the tiny hands of their peers. “I’d like to see our children’s words be shared on bookshelves, especially on the bookshelves of other ethnic children. It is important for children to know and see that underneath their very thin layer of difference are layers of indifference.” Julia’s series will focus on the growing pains, love, friendship, and victory over difficult times children are impacted by today.
“Writing the 1st book in Julia’s series Julia Learns, Knows and Grows connected me with my niece Julia as well as my girl cousins. I was able to see into their world when they allowed, creating a place in their imaginations that makes dreams come true.
Authors of AA Children’s books are sprinkling Black Girl Magic everywhere with little girls named Keena Ford, Izzy Barr, Grace, and Alta. Now, Julia can be added to this miraculous girl squad! We are grateful for being a part of Black literature that keeps the magic alive!
