Very informative!

This is a great overview of the layered process of getting a Children’s book published. Definitely provided key points to consider and lots of takeaways to develop an action plan.

Great Course!

This course was a very clear, understandable overview of multiple ways to have a book published. Michelle provided a detailed handout to go along with her presentation and styled the course so that all participants could understand next steps no matter if they write fiction, non-fiction or children's books. She welcomed participant questions along the way if we had questions. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to become a published author.

Great class!

Such a beneficial class! So much info and great resources. Plus, it was amazing having a small group so all our questions got answered.

A Helpful Intro to Publishing!

I am in the process of publishing my first children's book through a small publishing company currently, but wanted to learn more about the different publishing options and experiences possible. I knew very little to pursue a different type of publisher for the next book I'm writing (a different genre and audience than my first.) This course was SO HELPFUL in learning about different publishing routes, where to start, what to look for, how to find an agent, etc. Thank you, Michelle, for using your own experiences and success to help others up along the way!
