Your fellow KidLit authors & illustrators before getting their access credentials to the Ultimate Social Media Jump Starter™️:

The Ultimate Social Media Jump Starter is an online course that teaches you the fundamentals of book marketing on social media. It’s 6 on-demand lessons +  chock full of step-by-step instructions for building your audience and marketing your books.

You can access the course content anytime, anywhere. This is a course you can take at your own pace.

Right now, during my special introductory period, the whole package is $27.

Here’s the thing — for under 30 bucks, you could buy that fancy-pants leather-bound notebook — even though you know there’s a good chance it’ll spend most of its life on top of your bookshelf, as blank as the day you bought it.

Or you could invest $27 in an easy-to-follow social media marketing plan (made just for kidlit and young adult writers) that shows you EXACTLY how to create a professional author presence on social media while still being your authentic self.

Investing in yourself and your writing is a huge part of pushing your author career forward—and continuing to grow in a direction that will ultimately lead to more book book reviews from readers and more book deals from publishers.

Especially once you have found the right book marketing strategy for YOU. 

I created this course with the intent that you can revisit it from today through the rest of your career. That’s why you get lifetime access.

If you have fears around money or need help figuring out payments, please contact me and we can walk through it.

Sometimes it’s just fear. Sometimes it’s just not feasible. We can figure it out!

I work with students of ALL levels, from the most marketing-phobic to the super-skilled. I break down the lessons to make all of the content clear and easy for you to implement. 

The Ultimate Social Media Jump Starter was created for published AND pre-published children’s book writers. In the course, I cover the book marketing you need for every style of book from board books through young adult novels. It doesn’t matter where you are in your publishing journey. 

Look, you might have a bestseller on your hands. But how well your book is marketed has a direct impact on how well your book sells. And the success of your book is directly tied to your ability to attract readers.

The Ultimate Social Media Jump Starter is broken down into 6 mini-lessons.

In its entirety, the course is approximately 90 minutes. If you have time to browse the news feed while you sip your morning chai latté, then you will easily plow through this. 💪

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.

After you enroll, you get access to EVERY CHANGE I EVER make and upload to the course, forever.

And not only that, any updates I make to the bonuses you get (as part of this limited-time enrollment period) will be yours as well! (These bonuses won’t last forever!)
