From kindergarten teacher to best selling author, my name is Laurie Wright and I help children’s authors publish and market their books for kids. We talk about productivity, strategies and tactics so that you can grow your impact, even if you only have a few hours a week. I share my biggest AH HAHS, my ups and downs, and I chat with other authors who are busy making their dreams come true. This show is for ambitious #wordnerds who want to make more sales and reach more readers!

Customer ReviewsSee All
Being an independent author myself, I get asked a lot about ‘How to self-publish?’ — I always send people in Laurie’s direction as she has created the perfect streamlined process and has a ton of invaluable resources available! I didn’t have a lot of money to invest into my children’s book when I first started out, but with Laurie’s help and guidance it has become a #1 Best Seller!
Practical marketing ideas
Having a successful writing business is much more than being a great writer. Lots of actionable, practical tips from those in the trenches.
Practical and Entertaining
I love the ease in which Laurie interviews, ask questions, and shares information and tips. She makes me want to do ALL the things, and I don’t have time to. But I also love how she gets that and helps point listeners toward the key things and what to focus on.
