self-publish-your-childrens-book-start-to-finishAre you dreaming of self-publishing your own children’s book?

Don’t know where to start?

This is a COMPLETE, START-TO-FINISH video course that will give you all the information and resources you need to not only publish your first children’s book, but do it SUCCESSFULLY!

Start publishing your book today!

Whether you have a character concept, a complete manuscript, simply a lesson to teach, or nothing at all, this course will bring you through the children’s self-publishing process step-by-step and leave NO excuses for a book gone unpublished!

This could be the best time in history to be a children’s author. The barriers to entry are dropping rapidly, and the market is far from saturated. I’ll show you how to define your book’s value, create your own market gap, identify with your readers (and buyers) and create a product that is delivers huge value and enjoyment to readers.

We begin with the end in mind to create a product that will have a definite purpose and unique selling point(s). This way you, the author, can be confident before you even begin your self-publishing endeavor and you will have a definitive plan and specific target audience interested in your book.  Loosely, the strategy I teach in this course is:


          SELL YOUR BOOK  ->  

                   WRITE YOUR BOOK  ->  

                            PUBLISH YOUR BOOK!

I’ve also included a myriad of reference books with this course to help give you even more insight.

publish-your-childrens-book-in-paperbackIn the next 60 minutes learn how to create, proof, publish and list your children’s picture book and sell paperback copies of your book on Amazon. Order your first book proof this afternoon!

This course assumes that you are at the stage where you have a children’s book written or are in the process of writing and illustrating one and an unsure of what to do when you finish it. How do you get it in print? How do you sell it?

This is a quick crash course on how to use a “Print-on-demand” service called Createspace which is completely free and is affiliated with Print on demand (or “POD”) book publishing means that when someone purchases your book on Amazon, one book is printed and shipped out. The printing company makes their money every time a book is sold which means there is no upfront cost to you to print 100 or 1000 books.

POD is a no-risk way to self publish your books. I am not personally affiliated with Createspace whatsoever, but have been using the service for years and would not choose anything else. I enjoy self-publishing and being in control of my books and would recommend it for any author who is starting out and trying to avoid risks or being taken advantage of by a publisher.

In order to get started, you should first create a free user account at and set up your royalty pay-out information. IE, link your account to your Paypal account or bank account so that you can get paid. You will need to set up this information prior to creating your book listing.
