    Something we all hear often from authors is that they don't know where to start, which is what  keeps them STUCK! Overwhelmed with analysis paralysis- because they technically KNOW all that they should be doing, but they just don't know HOW to get started.

    Last week Laurie shared an overall book marketing strategy childrens authors can use, and what she helps authors implement.

    Today Laurie walks you through the logistics of how you can set it all up!

Great find!

First, I have to say I love this show!

I am in the process of publishing my first children’s illustration book.I stumbled across the show while trying to find insight from other authors. I am truly a fish out of water starting this new adventure. This podcast has completely opened my eyes, in a good way. I had no idea how much work goes on behind the scenes when you choose to self publish.

Through this podcasts encouragement and knowledge I truly believe I am up for the task! Thank you for sharing all your insight and providing amazing knowledge for first timers like me.

So helpful!

I’ve binge-listened to almost every episode and even gone back to re-listen to a few. Every episode is either helpful, inspiring, or both. Thank you for sharing so much insider knowledge!
