What is the How to Create Your Own Picture Book Course Bundle?


This course bundle will enable you to take charge of your picture book creation, from illustrations, to full cover and interior design. 

Or you could start doing this as a paid service for authors!

Knowing exactly what's needed and being able to create your own book doesn't just save you plenty of money, it's also empowering.

The reality is not all illustrators in the market today understand what is needed for book illustrations. That means you can run into real problems when you try to get your book designed and published.

Whether you're working with a freelance illustrator or doing your own illustrations, it is tremendously helpful to understand the requirements for book illustrations, so you can ensure they're done right and will look great when your book is created.

And when the illustrations are done, you need a cover and to have your full book interior designed. Now you can do this yourself—easily and with free software! We've laid it out so that anyone can do it, even if you have zero experience.

     What you get:

  • 50 (to-the-point!) videos: basic concepts, key information and screencast tutorials showing you EXACTLY what to do
  • Three detailed checklists for all the steps for your illustrations, cover and book design
  • Loads of videos showing you exactly how to get your ISBN and barcode, how to create a print-ready file, an epub file, and a .mobi file, and much more
  • Three easy-to-understand key term PDFs, with plenty of visual examples
  • Templates to help you plan and create your book
  • Key sites and free software to help you create everything you need to

All of this comes with lifetime access, for you to do and refer back to on your own time, as many times as you like.
