Children’s Book School

Write & Publish a Children’s Book Kids Love, Parents Can’t Wait to Buy, and Teachers Want in Class

PROGRAM

Children’s Book School

Contrary to what most people think, writing and publishing children’s books is even harder than other types of books, with little information out there about how to do it well. You may have stumbled across resources to show you what goes in to the story, what themes are important, but what about the unique process of publishing and promoting books specific to kids?

Children’s books are some of the most important literature in the world. Shaping a young mind can help children carry those lessons through to their adulthood…but if your book is never seen or read, those messages can become mute.

With our program, we understand that children’s books require a unique writing, illustrating, and publishing process like no other books.

And we’ve created the step-by-step system to help you write and publish children’s books kids love, parents can’t wait to buy, and teachers want in class.

Our Children’s Book School was created by a bestselling children’s author who has experience writing, publishing, and coaching children’s books, along with inside methods to book school speaking gigs and sell more books on and outside of Amazon.

“I was a bit into the book process when I joined SPS. I wanted to take the steps to ensure that I produced the best quality children’s book that I could. I felt that education and mentorship of those who have gone before me would be necessary in order to accomplish a children’s book worthy of being on a family’s bookshelf.

“I decided to join sps because I saw it as a formalized vehicle to tackle my macro level goal of creating systemic change in social justice in children’s literature. I would tell someone on the fence of joining SPS to just do it. Originally, money or a little bit of time commitment was somewhat of a barrier, but I loved the question somebody asked me on my clarity call: ‘What would be the cost of not doing it?’ And that right there convinced me.”

Children’s Self-Help

What made you want to join Self-Publishing School?
20 years ago, I got what seemed hundreds of rejection letters from publishers and gave up. This year after seeing your Facebook ad, I was determined I was going to achieve my dream.

Biggest worry before joining:
I have dyslexia and huge self doubt. My anxiety levels went through the roof thinking about how I could achieve my goal. I had no idea where to even start.

Most helpful part of the process:
The support, my self doubt would kick in and knowing I had a coaching call coming up, I would make myself be accountable as I didn’t want to waste anyone’s time.

What was your result of working with us?
I signed up in February and it’s December now, I am days away from launching my second book! Wow

Biggest benefit of working with us:
Self satisfaction ! I know I couldn’t have done it without SPS! The program, the network of incredible people and their support and guidance! Thank you !

How has your life changed since joining our program/s?
Inner peace, I have completed something that I started and knew I had to see it through. I also feel I have contributed to making a small but positive difference to society.

Advice for anyone thinking of joining:
Money is my stopper, as a single Mum I never had it or every spare cent went into my deposit for a house fund. I’ve never owned a home, only dreamed about it. I used my deposit money and I’m glad I did because it honestly feels great to finally be a best selling Author!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Do you help me even if my book is already written?
Yes! If you haven’t even started or have the book already written, we here at Self-Publishing School have a program for your next steps toward success—no matter your goals!
Q2: Are you a publishing house or will you publish the book on Amazon for me?
No, and this is the best part! We fully teach you how to write, market, and publish your book all by yourself in a step-by-step, repeatable process that empowers you to take control, self-publish for more royalties, and enables you to publish more books with life-time access to our materials.
Q3: How long does it take to be able to write fiction full-time?
Building a full-time fiction career is a long-term game, though we’ve managed to cut down this process significantly from that of traditional publishing. The length of time entirely depends on the author’s time spent, dedication, and how diligently they follow our step-by-step programs.
Q4: Can I still get traditionally published if I self-publish my book now?
Yes! In fact, having success self-publishing your fiction books can make it even easier for you to get an agent and a book deal. Proving your writing, your stories, and your platform increases the likelihood that those you query will pay attention to you. Now, more than ever before, agents and publishing houses are looking toward your platform, book sales, and email list size as indicators of whether or not they want to work with you.
Authors like Margaret Atwood (Handmaid’s Tale), Andy Weir (The Martian), and E.L. James (Fifty Shades of Grey) all started by self-publishing.
Q5: Do I have to book a call in order to get started?
Yes! Part of our enrollment process includes a 1-hour call with a Publishing Success Strategist to ensure you’re a good fit for us, we’re a good fit for you, and to get you started in the right program and with the right coach to fit your needs.
You can start by scheduling your call right here.
Q6: Do you offer payment plans for your programs?
Yes, we do! Your publishing strategist can discuss payment plan options during your strategy call.
Q7: Do you take royalties from my published book?
Absolutely not. We are an online education company, not a publisher, which means you keep 100% of the profits you make from your book royalties, unlike traditionally published authors making sometimes less than 10% of their book’s earnings.
Q8: How long do I have access to the program for?
For life! You’ll maintain your login and access to the online program portion forever.
Q9: What is “group coaching”?
Our group coaching calls happen daily, and you’re free to join whichever call makes sense with the stage you’re in. These allow for our authors to mingle, ask questions and get answers, learn from one another, and make progress together, fully guided by one of our own coaches.
Q10: What types of books do you teach us to publish (paperback, audiobooks, genres)?
We teach you how to create and self-publish all types of books (even hardback). This includes ebook, Kindle, paperback, children’s books, and the entire audiobook production and publishing process as well.
Q11: Do you ONLY help write and publish a book?
Nope! Here at Self-Publishing School, we can help you write and publish a book successfully AND continue your success Beyond The Book, no matter your goals. We have programs to help you gain promotion for your book via PR and Speaking, sell more books on Amazon through advanced marketing tactics, and even help you build and launch an online course that’s connected to your book and mission.
Q12: Do you edit the book and design the cover for me?
No. Book production costs are not included in the program costs. However, we do provide a rolodex of trusted, high quality, SPS-Approved editors, designers, and more for you to choose from with exclusive Self-Publishing School Author discounts, cutting down on the time, cost, and increasing quality of the final product.

Self-Publishing School was created to give YOU, the author, control. We teach you how to accomplish this dream with 1-on-1 guidance, group accountability, and more, so you can feel empowered to write, market, and publish a book as many times as you want with lifetime access to the program.
Q13: How soon can I start?
If there is a time available for your 1-hour strategy call today, you can start as soon as today! Ultimately, you can start the very same day you decide to join Self-Publishing School with immediate program login access.
Q14: Why should I choose to work with SPS instead of a publisher or another Self Publishing Company?
Self-Publishing School is dedicated to giving you the tools to create real change for yourself with our industry-breaking methods and techniques. As one of the earliest companies in the self-publishing game (before it was “mainstream” to consider self-publishing), we believe in teaching you to fish to feed yourself for a lifetime, instead of simply handing you the fish and then charging you each time you need to eat again. By working with us, you will grow a larger network of like-minded people, stronger skills in goal setting and self-motivation, and you will ultimately learn how to achieve your goals—repeatedly.
Q15: How is the Children’s Book School different from Fundamentals of Fiction?
While both programs come with 1-on-1 coaching and information you need to publish successfully, Children’s Book School is dedicated to the unique medium that is children’s literature, whereas Fundamentals of Fiction are for those looking to write books for ages beyond children’s and middle grade. You do not get the same modules, as they vary per book type, and Children’s Book School is designed by a bestselling children’s book author.
