Calling All Would-Be Children’s Book Writer’s, Authors and Publishers – How To Write And Publish Your Own Children’s Books And Save Yourself Hundreds Of Pounds

Ever thought of writing and publishing your own children’s books, but you don’t know where to start? (I found something that can help you with that!)

Are you stuck for ideas for your children’s books? (No problem, I got you covered, or rather they have! No pun intended!)

Have you written a children’s picture book story but NOT been able to:

Get it “professionally” published because the “professional” publisher says it will be hard to get the foreign translation rights as it’s in rhyme! Especially if you are not an established Author; not famous, or at least not in the genre of writing kid’s books. (If you have had this problem, I have been there too, many times, and it’s like bashing your head against a brick wall, because you need to publish a children’s picture book, to gain the credibility to write and publish more, but no one is willing to give you a break. Meanwhile your beautiful story is kept hidden from the world and all those children are suffering from not being able to read your beautiful book and be inspired by the illustrations.)

Which brings me onto another point…you have NOT been able to:

Get the book illustrated. And although you’re great at writing, you suck at drawing and haven’t been able to afford to pay someone to illustrate your book. (I was personally given an estimate years ago that it would cost me at least £370 for a 32 page picture book to be illustrated, which when you haven’t made a single penny from a picture book yet and you may not even have an audience for, is pretty frightening. What if it doesn’t sell? What if you don’t like the illustrations? What if the illustrator let’s you down and doesn’t finish the job, or does it in such a way that it’s unpublishable? £370 down the toilet and your heart dropping to the floor with all that upset and pain…)

Which brings me onto my next point..

What if you do a collaboration with an illustrator, where they get to use your story for free to contribute to their university degree, in exchange for them doing the illustrations for you for free. Great idea right? If you are starting out with NO money at all, and you don’t want to spend any money out to begin with. What could go wrong with that? You are both getting something for free in monetary terms, but that is a huge investment of time, energy, and effort on both your parts, and can take hours, days, weeks, months of meetings, emails, communications, delays. I have been there, done that, and although perhaps I didn’t spend that much time on it, the process did go on for the years of his degree and I was let down badly after he graduated!!! You see, he got my story! He finished his degree! And it was because of my story, that enabled him (I shall not mention his name) to succeed so much in his degree, that he passed with flying honourary colours. But… he never finished the illustrations. He stopped replying to my messages about the illustrations, and I had to stop wasting my time on a person that clearly was not going to deliver what he verbally promised me he should deliver – all the illustrations for my book, which presumably he had to do for his degree anyway, I did see one of them in a meeting with him, but that was about it. It was after that I looked into the cost of paying someone else to do them and I felt it just wasn’t worth it, because of all the what ifs I mentioned. And after I had my trust broken so badly and been let down, it made me scared to trust anyone else again, and I also had another problem…)

Not knowing how to get the illustrations from drawings into the book itself.

Or how to create graphic illustrations suitable for this type of book in software.

How to format a children’s picture book to upload to Amazon Createspace at the time – which is now KDP publishing.

It was an absolute frigging nightmare. That didn’t stop…

So all the beauty, time, energy, effort, peace and happiness, and difficult re-writes of the book manuscript after “traditional professional publisher feedback” and feedback from my Freelance Writer’s membership FREE appraisal service at that time went nowhere, so it remained as a manuscript in an envelope sent to myself to copyright it. And a longing to get it into print one day… A longing I still have to this day, as it’s such an awesome book that I know kids will love and adore… Even though I’m now known for writing non-fiction books that change lives from pain to gain, for adults, and specialise in asexuality and still working hard to finish my Asexual Guide To Sex book which I started to write in June 2019 and still adding fresh content to.. life and ill health got in the way, but I am determined to get it finished and published.

I also wrote a second children’s picture book with a similar theme that I got feedback on from the FREE appraisal service with my Freelance Writer’s membership and then I started on my 3rd with the same theme as the first – I was building a series – but sadly they stopped the appraisal service and then I realised I am born to write non-fiction and turned my focus, time and attention onto that, and built an audience for my non-fiction books that change lives, and I would like to say, impacted the world in a huge way – with more still to come. BUT… I still want to publish my children’s picture books because I believe in sharing your stories with the world, rather than take them to the grave. I love to go to the cinema to kid’s club on self-dates. (I did that on Sunday.) I love watching kids movies. I love Disney and Pixar, and similar animated movies. The last film I watched Adams Family 2, and I loved the message at the end about we are supposed to be different and not like everyone else, so we should celebrate our differences within ourselves and know it’s okay to not fit in because we are different and that’s our beauty.

I am very different. I am like a business guy (even though I am female) and a quirky kid Disney Princess – you can even see me in my Ace Fibro Girl outfit at And even though I don’t want children of my own, I get on well with kids and treat them as little beings in their own right, as equals and not less than me. You could say I treat them as young adults, who have their own mind and are intelligent. We have fun talking about movies together, if I get the chance to take to kids. Or just get on well in general, as they often like to talk and have fun in life and so do I. One of my new housemates has kids. I live in a self-contained flat in a house. So I live on my own and have housemates— how quirky is that!!! I also live like a teenager and my bedroom is full of cuddly toys and sparkly things. I love it that way. I reprogrammed my mind to be like 21 years old using NLP (neuro-linguistic programming some years ago. And went to Disneyland Paris in 2017 for my 21st Mindset birthday.

Even after all these years. I still have the strongest desire to publish my children’s picture books. That feeling has never left me. It’s on my bucket list to do before I die… which I am not planning on doing at all at… But you never know when your last day will be, especially with Covid around. So that’s why I leapt at the chance to get the Children’s Book Creator course here, at only $147 it’s an absolute steal, (especially if your currency is ££££), with all of the video trainings you receive, all the support you get in the Facebook group, all the money it saves you by teaching you how to illustrate your books yourself, and all the time it saves you trying to figure out how to do this stuff on your own, why not get the new year off to a flying start by clicking here to get your own copy of the course right now.

This course will solve all of these problems for you:

  • Save you hundreds of pounds you would usually pay for similar courses, which might not even come close to the quality of this one.
  • It will show you how to write, illustrate, and publish, your very own Children’s Picture book. Saving you time, money, and wasted energy trying to figure all this stuff out on your own.
  • Nuria really knows her stuff and takes the headache out of illustrating your book yourself using free and mostly low cost software and graphics. Saving you hundreds of pounds you would pay an illustrator to illustrate your books for you. And once you have these skills, you have them for life.
  • The Facebook group you get with this course, is worth the cost of the course alone. Even before you start the course itself, the expert advice, help, and support, by other Authors/Writers, is priceless. With ongoing support and feedback by Nuria and other writing and publishing experts in the group, as well as those just starting out with you.
  • You get to live your dream as a Children’s Book Author, Illustrator, and publisher, and be able to have the opportunity to put a smile on a kid’s face and brighten their day. That’s priceless.

So if you have ever wanted to write, illustrate, and publish your own Children’s book, but don’t know where to start, get this course now, here don’t hesitate, we only live once and it’s a small investment for potentially huge returns. And you get to learn so much more about book publishing in general, including from the Facebook group alone, even before you start Nuria’s course – because this group is the one that comes with this course, not her free group, so these people in the group take writing seriously and are not just would-be writers. There are writers/authors in the group who make a full-time living from writing and who are experienced in publishing multiple types of books, such as journals and colouring books, not just picture books. They say your network is your net worth – so by expanding your online network with people who are successful at making money from publishing books and some who make a full-time living from it, it helps to shift your mindset to one of abundance and provides much more motivation to do the work and increases your chances of success at making a full-time living from writing and publishing books.

After all of the heartache and pain I’ve been through with not being able to publish my own picture books for years, and all the wasted time, energy, and effort I spent on that, and the yearning to still do that, coupled with everything I have been through over the last year with ill health (not Covid thankfully) and trauma resulting in CPTSD – more about this in the next post, I’m now at the stage where I’m focusing on my book publishing business and expanding my book offering to the world… but first finishing my Asexual Guide To Sex and promoting that for 3 months… and still got another book to write and publish for asexuals too this year. I wanted to let you know about the offer I came across, as it was too good to resist (Children’s Book Creator course), remember all the heartache and pain I told you about at the beginning of this post….

  • Not knowing where to start.
  • Not being able to get a traditional publisher to publish my book/s.
  • Illustrator letting me down and not delivering the illustrations.
  • £370 just for illustrating one picture book.
  • Not knowing how to get the illustrations from the drawings into the book itself.
  • Or how to create graphic illustrations suitable for this type of book.
  • Not knowing how to specifically upload a Children’s picture book to KDP and successfully publish it.
  • Potentially dying with my picture books inside me and taking them to the grave with me, and denying kids the opportunity to have their day brightened by me, and putting a smile on my face.

This course solves all of those problems and more, see screenshot below about – What You Will Accomplish At The End of this course, taken from my course dashboard inside my own private members area, so I highly recommend it, here is the link

From Nuria herself: “So many of us have always wanted to write a children’s book. It’s an incredible feeling when you are holding your printed book in your hands and read through the pages. And an even better feeling is knowing that, someone somewhere, is reading your book to a child! If you have ever thought about writing a children’s book but don’t know where to start, or if you already produce low content books on Amazon KDP, like planners, journals or activity books, then this is one step further for you to take your book publishing to a higher level. But this is not a course teaching you about the traditional way of publishing a book. This is an unconventional way of producing and self-publishing your book and may not be what you expect. This course is for anyone who wants to publish a book but hasn’t got a clear story in mind and who is very flexible about what kind of children’s book they are going to create. I will teach you how to choose your topic so that you have the best chances of selling your book. And we will use pre-made images and graphics, so you don’t have to use an illustrator. So book will be completely self-made and self-published, from start to finish.” So if you have ever wanted to know how to write, illustrate, and publish your own children’s books, get your copy of the Children’s Book Creator course now and save yourself hundreds of pounds it would cost you to pay an illustrator

On 16th of December 2021, and in the month leading up to it, I had a huge mindset shift (post to follow about that) and I’m determined not to let 2022 be like 2021. The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again, expecting to get a different result, and I realised I have to change what I’m doing and go all in with my writing as a book publishing business, focusing solely on that and continuing to build my audiences for those books. Especially since quitting my full-time day job that made me severely poorly on October 10th 2021. Buying the Children’s Book Creator course, I believe, will take my writing and book publishing business to another level entirely.

So if you are fed up with where you at right now, and you don’t want a repeat of 2021, you need to do something different, or you will end up being on the hamster wheel of insanity, doing the same thing over and over again in 2021. And experiencing all of the pain that went with it.

You know one year from today, you will certainly arrive somewhere, the question is where?

If you want that to be a different destination than in the past, you are going to have to take a different path. If you want to get different results, you’re going to need to take different actions and learn new skills.

I believe everything happens for a reason, and it’s not an accident you’re here at this page, and this is the different path, the different action you need to take. Let’s get your Children’s book publishing business started, let’s get you writing and illustrating your own Children’s books, uploading them to KDP, and help you create true, passive, set and forget income, for life. I can’t wait to become part of your success journey and see you in the Children’s Book Creator course Facebook group. Click this (affiliate) link to get you copy of the Children’s Book Creator course, now! (I only recommend products I believe in and usually use myself – such as this one.) I can say with certainty, this is one of the best investments I ever made. I see other student’s, in real time, who have created their books and getting advice of other students on their masterpieces, by sharing some of their beautifully illustrated book pages they have created, their results are amazing! I am so happy I bought the course. I would encourage you not to hesitate in getting the course yourself. The accompanying Facebook group is very active and supportive and is worth the price of the course alone. Not to mention all the time and money this course is going to save you, especially in the long-term. Get your copy now, here

How to create compelling characters for kids

Hi everyone

You may have noticed is developing.

I have taken on-board my first new illustrator and he is working on illustrations for my debut children’s picture book for 3-5 year olds.

So what makes compelling characters for kids in terms of the writer/illustrator partnership for that age group:

  1. Character expressions mimic that of the kids’.
  2. They behave in the same manner as a kid would.
  3. They speak the kids’ language.
  4. Even the more scary animals are cute, cuddly and approachable.
  5. Each character has their own character that makes them memorable in some way.
  6. They are colourful.
  7. The story is told from the point of view of the main character.
  8. The main character is likeable and approachable.
  9. Kids can relate to the main character in some way.
  10. Each character could have a story of their own to tell.

My debut children’s picture book © “The Owl Who Couldn’t Hoot” will be out in a few months.
