When I first started my journey into children’s publishing, I didn’t know anything or anyone else doing the same. I spent the first few years frozen in my tracks because I was intimidated and overwhelmed by learning about this new world. I was sifting through a mountain of sometimes conflicting information as the publishing industry was in constant flux. All I wanted was to be able to sit down with someone and ask questions—especially ones specific to my projects. I went to conferences and did all kinds of research, but I was still getting hung up on details I later learned didn’t matter, or worse, I was doing things that could actually cause obstacles for me.
If this sounds like you, bring your project and join me at my Children's Publishing Workshop in Tahoe on May 14th, 2016. I love to share what I’ve learned so people can avoid common mistakes, save time and get going in the right direction. And you'll meet kindred spirits! (Sign up here - )

The workshop is being held at South Lake Tahoe publisher Bona Fide Books. They regularly get children's publishing questions and because that isn't their area, they often turn those questions over to me. Children's books and the children's book industry are entirely different from the rest of the publishing industry and demand is great enough once again to offer my workshop.

Are you too far from Tahoe? There has been quite a bit of interest from people who are too far away and I'm considering doing an online version of the workshop—complete with one on one time. Just like the in person workshop, class size is limited to remain personalized and allow time for plenty of questions. If the online version is of interest to you, let me know and I'll keep you in the loop!

Here are the details for the Tahoe workshop. I hope to see you there!

And remember...if you're interested in creating in any capacity for children's publishing, do yourself a huge favor and join SCBWI! It's the absolutely best step you can take.
