Get Everything You Need to Become a Published Children’s Author.

Your Time is Now!

 

 

You sift through your daily mail. Looks like the usual stuff: a bill, some circulars, a credit card offer and… wait, what’s this?

It’s a hand addressed letter, penned in red ink. The back of the envelope is adorned with a large heart, the front with a smiley face.

You open it and unfold the line ruled paper, freshly torn from a notebook. You begin reading:

 

Hi!

You don’t know me, but it really feels like you do. You see, I just finished reading your book and, for the first time in months, I feel happy. I laughed for the first time in a really long time, I even cried a little bit.

And then I read your book again.

Seventh grade has been really hard for me but, after reading your story I feel soooo much better. I think everything is going to be OK now.

Thank you!

Your friend,

Tania

 

Your hand shakes as you put the paper back in the envelope. You take a deep breath and you realize: you just changed a child’s life. You’ve just made a difference.

You’re a children’s author.

This Experience Can Be Yours — Many Times Over. But Only If You Take Action.

 

In our 25 years helping regular people become published children’s authors we’ve heard these stories time and time again. A magical connection between author and reader, a life touched, the world changed.

Once this happens, nothing remains the same. A sense of purpose and confidence fills every part of the author’s life. A desire to connect on a larger scale leads to bigger and better things.

Top children’s authors live each day knowing that their words are inspiring, entertaining and connecting with young people across the globe. They know that they’re making lives better and more fun. They know that, in ways large and small, they are making a difference every day.

 

But, when they started, they were exactly like you.

 

They were unsure of what to do, they lacked confidence in their skills, they weren’t positive they were “cut out for this”.

But they did the one thing that leads to true success:

They heard the voice inside that said “you can’t do this” or “you’re not smart enough” or “you’re too old” or “no one cares what you have to say”.

 

And they did it anyway.

Now It’s Your Turn.

 

“With Children’s Book Insider on my side, I went from being unpublished straight to the bestseller list! If you dream of writing for children or teens, CBI is the place for you.”

Ken Derby, author, “The Top 10 Ways to Ruin the First Day of School”

 

When you first encounter the world of children’s publishing, things can seem pretty confusing. Publishers, agents, query letters, apps, ebooks…. And that’s before you even get into the actual nuts and bolts of writing!

So, if you’ve tried writing for kids before and gave up, we get it. If you’ve been too intimidated to even try, we understand. And, if you think you just can’t do this, we hear you.

But may we tell you something?

 

You’re wrong. And anyone who says that you can’t do it? They’re very wrong.
