Kidlit Self-Publisher's Starter Pack

Stay on Top of the Publishing Process without the Help of a Publisher!

Imagine how it will feel once you self-publish your book. You'll be able to...

  • Expedite the publishing process instead of wondering what to do when.
  • Maintain full control of what happens with your book instead of having to give up your original vision for your story.
  • Earn higher royalties for all your hard work instead of accepting pennies on the dollar.
  • Be in the driver seat of your writing career instead of waiting for someone's permission to become a published children's book author.
  • Experience the joy of seeing children read your story again and again instead of just wishing that day would come!

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for providing all of these great resources! I am a mom, and Pre-K teacher and have published a few articles for adults, but now I'm trying to break into the world of children's literature and write the stories I always wished I could find as a teacher. Thanks again, for all your tips, I really appreciate it."

Hey there! I'm Brooke Van Sickle

And I'm going to help you self-publish your first children's book!

When I decided I wanted to write a children's book 6 years ago, a traditionally published author told me that it would take 5-10 years before I ever received a publishing a contract. (And that was if I was lucky!)

As someone who wanted to make writing their full-time career, I didn't want to wait that long. So, I dove headfirst into self-publishing, learning everything as I went.

It was a lot of work, but SO AMAZING to finally see my books in print. And even more amazing to see children reading my books over and over!

Self-publishing has made my dreams of being a full-time writer possible. Now, I want that same thing to happen for you -- and it all starts by knowing what to do when and how to get organized. Everything you'll find in the Self-Publisher's Starter Pack.
