Learn how to write a children's book!
Do you want to be a children's writer but don't know where to start?
Do you want to learn the steps to getting your children's book published?
Do you want to see your picture book or novel in bookstores?
Then the Children's Writer's Super System-the only system of its kind on the Internet-is for you. Through nine interactive sessions, I will teach you the down-to-earth nitty-gritty about how to write and publish a children's book-sharing one insider tip after another that will make you leapfrog over the competition.
I started out from scratch, without anything published, without any formal training, without even any ideas!
Since then, I've attended numerous writer's conferences, received my Masters of Fine Arts in Writing for Children from the prestigious Vermont College, and had more than 40 published works-including successful middle grade novel series, story books, board books, comics and activities, curriculum, short stories, radio scripts, children's movies and more.
But the road from there to here was filled with a lot of trial and error-a self-driven school of hard knocks. At times, I've made a fool of myself, receiving rejection after rejection, and at times I've won prestigious awards and been flown to large publishing companies to help develop their next children's line. I learned something from every experience, good and bad-and now you can, too.
With the Children's Writing Super System, I'll share everything with you that I wish I had known when I started out-so you can start light years ahead of the competition.
I'm not going to lie to you: This is no magic formula. It will still take the sweat of all your creativity and hard work-but instead of spinning your wheels, you'll have the tools and knowledge you need to create the best manuscripts possible, time and again.
This is not a series of lectures or a course based on writing theory filled with ten dollar words. If you want that, there are plenty of books on how to write for children available at your local bookstore. I'm not trying to reinvent that wheel. Instead, I'm giving you a series of honest, straight-forward talks and tips, sharing with you what I've learned over the course of my career.
We live in a global marketplace. There's room for all of us to succeed-and that's one thing you'll discover early on in this course: There are MANY more types of children's writing opportunities than you have ever imagined. We'll look at several of them in-depth, so you can start submitting your work to publishers right away. In fact, look at all you'll learn...
In the first half of this system, you'll learn about the creative side of writing for children. You'll discover how to:
In the second half, you'll learn about the business side of writing for children, including how to:
What if you want to self-publish your children's book? This course is invaluable for you, too. Because even if you self-publish, your book will only sell if it meets the needs of your audience-and this course shows you how to avoid common pitfalls children's writers often make...and it also explores powerful statistics you need to know about the marketplace and childhood development.
Will it be easy? No-it takes a lot of work, devotion and heart. Most of us get into children's writing because we have a passion for impacting children's lives. But you can do it. I've made a living doing it. Some years you might make six-figures doing it! But regardless, one thing is certain: We all need help getting there. And that's what the Children's Writing Super System is all about.
Many writers have paid more than $1000 to attend a writer's conference and take just a few of these sessions, but now YOU can enjoy them ALL for a fraction of that cost-thanks to the Internet. Think about it: How much would you spend for more than 7 hours of mentored teaching from a writing professional-that you can experience again and again? Now you can download 9 audio sessions and an accompanying 78-page workbook for only:
$147! This month $47!
At this price, it's more affordable than about any other form of one-on-one teaching of its kind. Think of it: For only the cost of a few dinners out, you'll receive all the knowledge you need to launch a successful chidren's writing career. PLUS–you'll also get the special bonuses listed below!
The audio is in MP3 format, so you can listen to these sessions on your iPod, PC or other portable music player-wherever you go! And the workbook is in PDF format, viewable-and printable-directly on your PC using the FREE Acrobat Reader.
MY PROMISE: I'm a writer and I know money can be tight. I want to know you find this teaching easily worth every penny you pay for it. If for any reason within the first 60 days you're not satisfied with the teaching in this system-if you don't find it insightful, truthful experience from a writer-in-the-trenches-I'll give you a FULL 100% refund.

Tomorrow is Josh's birthday. I plan on making it a good one but we're keeping it on the down low. We invited a bunch of friends over so we can all hang out and enjoy our time together. It's going to be fun!
I'm picking up the house a little which of course made me realize how dirty the walls have gotten. So, I washed the walls. What a difference that makes!!
Currently, I'm writing down a small grocery list for things I'll need to make for tomorrow and Saturday. Saturday, my sister is having her going away party & my nephew's birthday party. It should be fun too. I'm making potato salad for that. Yum!
Well, gotta get going. Enjoy the pictures from the island!
Such a curious thing.
Wild Lupine was everywhere.
I quickly had to take this picture because some sandhill cranes were walking right next to us. They dashed into the woods and this was the best picture I got of them. :P
My mom's dog, Molly, chilled out and tried to keep cool as we played card games & checkers.
This raven was hilarious! He was walking side by side with this doe then he would caw at it and continue to walk. So cute!
You're never really alone, anywhere you go, on this island. It was wonderful.
Look how dry the sand was under the long tilted tree.
♪♫ Baby you got me, and ain't nowhere that I’d be
Then with your arms around me
Back and forth you rock me, yeahh
So I surrender, to every word you whisper
Every door you enter, I will let you in. ♫♪
I've had that song stuck in my mind even before I went to bed last night. It replayed in my mind as I stared at the dark ceiling; letting those swirls abstract to the beat as the shades of darkness contrasted with a hint of light as car passed by.
It's been a beautiful rainy day today. As the cars pass a soft hush noise fills the room from the water splashing about. A perfect day for tea and my fingers and toes feel the chill from the moisture in the air. Today it's lemongrass and white tea that warms me up from the inside.
It was so quiet in the house today. Each of the stairs creaked with my footsteps when normally the cacophony of life over whelms those simple sounds.
Little faux gemstones glitter in the overcast light. Pooling until they get so engorged till they trickle down the glass.
Walking in the rain reminds me when I was younger. Splashing in the puddles and not caring or feeling the cold. I still splash in the puddles but I certainly feel the cold from the water now!
Clear umbrellas are so much fun. I love being able to see if cars, people or branches are coming as I walk. Not to mention seeing the rain drip down.
I inverted this photo and loved how the branches lit up look contained into a boxed up little world.
Since I like sharing; here is a survey-thingy I borrowed.
How did you get one of your scars? When I became pregnant with Savannah; my skin wouldn't have the elasticity that I would have liked and so all the way up to my belly button and all over my hips are covered in deep stretch marks. :P

How are you feeling at this moment? I'm okay. I'm gearing up to work out after this.
How did your night go last night? Not bad. We watched some Destination Truth and had some visitors before bedtime.
How did you do in high school? In the beginning of High School I was still dealing with emotional ups and downs after my father's suicide.

I bought my shirt at Hot Topic and I love 'Hey Arnold!'. So far it's my favorite work out shirt.

How old do you want to be when you get married? I was 18 when I got married to my best friend. Technically, we are still married but we agreed early on that our friendship was nothing more than friendship and I then found Josh. :) We're still best friends and he is our room mate and Savannah's dad.
