Children's Storybooks

You've always had a book in you. So the question is...

Aren't you tired of

*NOT* being a

children's book author?
You’ve been sitting on an idea for…well…forever. You’ve witnessed firsthand the difference it makes when children see themselves in the context of a children’s picture book. And you want to make that difference.
But the moment you start to put your ideas onto paper…self-doubt kicks in.

 

“Will people actually read this?”
“How will I get it published?”
“Are my ideas even good enough?”
“Do I actually know what I’m doing?” 
 
As time goes on, you’re quickly losing confidence in your idea. Yet deep down, you know that there is a place for your book in the classroom or on a child's shelf.

 

When it comes down to it, it’s not your idea that needs work. It’s your process.
You just need to know you’re moving down the right path.

You thought that writing a children's book would be easy.

 

But if that was the case, wouldn’t everyone be a published author?  

 

It’s not just that you’ve got a limited word count to tell the story in. You’ve also got to find the right vocabulary for the group you’re targeting. And you know that getting it wrong risks losing your audience.

 

Then there’s rhyme, meter, mechanics. Not to mention the essential component of a proper story arc.

 

You start off excited to put your ideas on paper but as time goes on, your confidence drops.

 

You’re beginning to understand that writing a children’s book

isn’t as simple as having a great idea. So you put your idea

on the side burner, hoping to come back to it later

when the “timing is right.”

The pressure to learn the industry is sucking the fun out of writing your book.

 

Writing aside, there is so much to learn. You’re already halfway done when you find out the hard way that going down the traditional publishing route means you shouldn’t have hired an illustrator. (Ouch.)

 

It’s not just that you’re short on time. Missing out steps is actually costing you money. 

 

What started out as a passion project is quickly turning into a headache. 

 

To make matters worse, everywhere you turn, other writers are talking about what “a joy” it is to write their book. And yet with every day that passes, you feel a little less equipped. 

 

The fear of making an expensive mistake is sucking the fun out of bringing your vision to life.

Less than two years ago, I decided to write my first children’s book. Last week, I published my tenth book! 📖

In 2019, my husband asked me to share something I’ve always wanted to do. I said: I’ve always wanted to write a children’s book. 

 

Since then, I have published ten picture books. Parents regularly get in touch to share how my stories have inspired their children. Earlier this year, Disney reached out to me. 

 

No, I don’t have friends in the industry. There’s no “secret strategy” that only insiders know. And I’m not some kind of magical genius either.

 

Truth is, to get published, you don’t need any of these things. Least of all genius. In fact, my first book had to be edited 14 times before it hit print. (Yep, really!)

 

So what does it take to take your idea and turn it into a profitable picture book?

 

For me, it started with investing hundreds of hours into researching the publishing industry. Then came the marketing. The trial and error. And all the other hiccups a person has to endure to create a reliable system.

 

Now, I have a refined process. It’s how I know my books will sell before I even put my pen on the page. 

 

But if you don’t have hundreds of hours to spare, that’s OK too. Because you can take the simple route to becoming a profitable author. And I want to show you how.

Why not make today the day you commit
- ONCE AND FOR ALL - 
to writing that book and getting it published?

 

The only thing standing between your idea and a profitable picture book is a refined process. That and a sprinkle of imagination. (Which you have in abundance!)

You CAN publish a children’s book. A book that…

✔️ Comes from the heart

✔️ Captures the imagination of your readers

✔️ Makes a child feel represented

✔️ Gets dog-eared because it’s been read so many times

✔️ Takes the financial pressure off 

✔️ Makes the lives of other teachers easier

✔️ Inspires children to create their own stories

✔️ You are proud to share with your own family

✔️ Sparks the joy of reading in a new generation of readers



 

Because when you have the right process,

you KNOW you can...

Browsing through various courses on children's book publications, I did my research and homework.

With the plethora of information, there's no steps missed in the process. This course is the spark I didn't know that I needed. It's the motivation, the drive, the spinning wheels to my journey.

-Courtney Modisette

I LOVE the detailed and step-by-step aspect of the course. I love the short but detailed videos that focus on all different aspects of the author process. I'm especially excited about all the information to figure out the publishing route, as that feels like the more complex and hardest area to navigate. The course is really well done, and definitely worth the time and money. I can tell the authors have a lot of experience and knowledge they've used to create this course.

-Amanda Quirin

It included way more information than I expected. I also included things I didn't even know I need to know more about!
