Manuscript Submission Video Training Series (free!)

for writers of picture books, middle grade and young adult novels


  • Is my manuscript ready to send out?
  • Am I ready for this process?
  • How do I find a publisher that’s right for my book?


Publication is the Big Prize for most writers–sweet validation for commitment to our craft. But when I was starting out, I didn’t realize how important it was to prepare not only my manuscript, but myself for what that Big Prize might entail.

This series is my gift to you. It’s what I wish I’d learned when I was starting out.
