"You really inspire me to write! I really hope I also have one of my books in my hand one day."

Brooke Van Sickle Founder at Journey to KidLit


After 5 years of dreaming, I finally got to hold my picture book as a published author.

For years, I was spinning my wheels, hoping to get published, yet still stuck in the same place of having manuscripts with nothing to show for it, By the summer of 2018, I was so tired of waiting, I decided to get serious.

It took me a few more months and critiques to polish my picture book manuscripts, but by the end of 2020, I will be a 3-time published picture book author with BiblioKid Publishing. But that’s not where my journey ends. It’s only just beginning!

Now, I see my books sold at Barnes & Noble. I go on school visits to classrooms with students who can’t wait to meet the “famous” author. And I get to do what I love every freaking day -- write books for kids that inspire and ignite my soul. 

Now, I want the same thing for you! I don't want you to stay stuck in the waiting game. I created the Picture Book Perfection eBook to help you learn the complete process to picture book writing to help jumpstart your dream of publishing your picture book.

"Brooke, Thank YOU!!! I'm sure your efforts will help my efforts!!! Thank YOU!!"
