"Oh, it's easy. Just do this and that and then some of that."
Says the one with experience to the one without experience.
I've written, published, and marketed 14 books. I've made all the mistakes (and then some). But I've got it down now.
How to get your book published.
Here we go. No fluff, just get it done, get it up there, get it published.
After a month, you might even say to someone with less experience, "Oh, it's easy."
I Can't Not Do This
You know those things that you Just Have To Do? This is one of them.
I've written 19 books. It's easy for me. I want it to become easy for you.
I wrote 5 of those books together with my two young boys (then 8- and 10-years old). Then I wrote 2 more with my 17-year-old nieces.
The experience was magical, awful, a disaster, a sparkly magical wonderland and in the past.
In the past? Yes, because we did it. We're done. We're onto the next thing.
But you. You haven't done it yet. I want you to experience what I experienced together with my kids.
That's it. That's my goal.
Oh yeah, we're going to write a book while doing it. You may have noticed that "The Book" is almost secondary. What I really want is the experience with a kid--for them but also for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
