Zondervan Picks Up Annie Downs' Book
Annie Downs first published her book, From Head to Foot, with WestBow Press in December of 2010. By April 2012, Zondervan picked up her title. An updated and revised version of the book will be released by Zondervan on Sept. 4 under a new title, Perfectly Unique: Praising God from Head to Foot.
Downs is also an avid blogger, speaker and freelance writer. She is "passionate about seeing young women find true value in God and His love for them."
'From Head to Foot' Picked Up
Here Annie Downs shares how self-publishing From Head to Foot with WestBow Press ultimately led to a traditional publishing deal with Zondervan.
The Importance of a Platform
Downs talks about how her blog, speaking engagements and church community all provide a strong network for her to promote her book's message.
The Road to Self-Publishing
As Downs booked engagements to speak with teenage girls about a variety of topics, she was frustrated she couldn’t give the girls anything to take away from the events. By self publishing her book, she was able fill that need and offer a tangible item her audience could later reference.
Working with WestBow Press
Downs touches on various reasons why her experience with WestBow Press was such a positive journey, from how pleased she was with the quality of her book to how grateful she was for her publishing consultant who offered encouragement as she went through the publishing process.
