Learn The Inside Secrets of Writing Successful
Children’s Storybooks – For Pleasure or Profit!
Imagine a job you love, with no commuting and no boss telling you what to do. You don’t have to rush back to collect the children from school and the only deadlines you follow are your own. You can just sit at your desk or the kitchen table with a mug of coffee and write. Stop when you choose, sit in the garden or meet a friend, then start work again. A gentle, stress-free way of life, at the pace and times you choose.
The emotional rewards are certainly far greater than any 9-to-5 office job – and the financial profits can be far larger too!
No wonder writing is the dream career for so many people. Now you can make this reality, easily and simply, as a writer of children’s books.
While you write, you can release your natural creativity and let your imagination soar free. You can rediscover the excitement you knew as a child at the magic phrases, “Once upon a time,” and “Let me tell you a story.” Fire-breathing dragons, misunderstood teenagers, spirited princesses, haunted houses, talking animals – you can bring them all to life, and spend your days inventing. You will have the satisfaction of creating something worthwhile and lasting. You will have the joy of thrilling and delighting the children or grandchildren in your life.
Plus, you will have an unequalled sense of achievement through creating stories that will enthral children around the world. Perhaps even writing lasting classics that will be read and loved for generations.
On top of this, you can make money. Once you’ve mastered the basic skills of writing, with practice and experience, you could well make as much as five or six figure amounts from your work. Think of the astoundingly popular Harry Potter books, or just imagine the merchandise percentage and film/TV rights payments for such simple classics as Thomas the Tank Engine, Fireman Sam, Postman Pat, Teletubbies, Spot the Dog, Peppa Pig and dozens of others.
Children’s novels are typically half or one third of the length of an adult novel and written in much simpler language which reduces the burden on the writer – but don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s easy! Like anything else, you have to learn your craft first and this is where this new and exciting online course can pay huge dividends.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The lessons were packed with so much value information. I took the course over 6 weeks to allow the lessons to sink in. So much to be learned in a few short modules so I best get back to module one and start over!
