Let’s Start Your Children’s Book NOW!
Apparently a lot of you have a children’s book on your bucket list!
My name is Amy R Brooks and I have coached tons of authors who knew that they had a message, but weren’t sure how that would show up in actual words, sentences, and paragraphs. They REALLY weren’t sure how to incorporate dialogue, imagery, or conflict in a way that felt compelling.
I can bust through all of those “problems” and get you writing with ease and flow.
I am amazed how many of you have a WONDERFUL concept and some clarity around the age range and reading level of your audience, but many of you didn’t know how to start the writing process. Others had written things out, but didn’t know how to handle illustrations. Others said that since they didn’t know how to publish, they didn’t even bother to start! Eek!
Let’s address all of those super-legit book concerns:
It has been done before and will be done again.
If others can write, illustrate, and publish…YOU can, too!!!
Children’s book author, Debbie Danko Appelman and I have created a 6-week course to get you from book idea to completed book draft in your hands. You will have all the information you need to take the next step to illustrate on your own or work with an illustrator. You can self-publish or submit your idea to an agent and go the traditional publishing route.
Children’s Book Author
We will talk about how you show up online during and after our 6 weeks together. Getting the word out is half the battle! We want EVERYONE to know how cool your book will be even before it’s finished!
Six weeks is not a long period of time, so we will be ripping and running through A LOT of material so that you can be published by the summertime. Debbie has been through it all and wants to tell you EVERYTHING she learned along the way. She is an open book. *lame pun*
I loved working with Debbie because she was so committed to each step of her book project. I’m really excited that she can share her first hand experiences (as a writer and illustrator!) with each participant in our online workshop. Her patience is unmatched and her problem-solving skills are exactly what first-time authors need when navigating the creative writing process.
Writing a children’s book can be challenging, but we will be by your side each step of the way.There is no need to feel like you are stuck with a suitcase of great ideas and an equally big bag of doubt.
Children’s series are so smart, by the way.
Once Debbie and I help you through the process one time, you can do it again and again and again! Get guidance on book #1 and then use that muscle memory to carry you through book #2-5.
Beyond series, we will teach you marketing tricks throughout the course, as well. There is no reason you should feel like your book is a random entity. We’ll show you how you can integrate it into the business or lifestyle you already have.
Children’s books have a lot of moving parts (darn illustrations!), but they do have the potential for longevity in your life and career. There’s so much potential for income, speaking opportunities, or just a family keepsake.
Our 6-weeks of co-creation starts April 25th. You’ll get clarity
If you’ve read all the way to this point, then I know you’re interested in writing a children’s book now (or know someone who might be).

Have you ever thought about being a children’s author but never thought it really could happen? Well that was me. I was a teacher for 16 years and used to write my own books for my children when they were little in composition books. I never imagined that I would have my own published book, but I am here and thrilled! I did not know where to start, but I decided to make the commitment and that made the difference. I took an online class with Amy, my writing coach, and questions got answered. She fostered all of the things I knew and taught me what I didn’t. I thought there is no one way, but Amy helped me learn my way to writing. I learned how to schedule time, create writing behaviors, find available resources, attract publishing options, and implement marketing strategies.Debbie Appelman
