From Kickstarter to Good Morning America: 

One Writer Shares Her Secrets to Success

Learn how indie author Lucy Ravitch went from putting her picture book project up on Kickstarter to being on the Good Morning America show. Lucy will share tips and recommendations on how to independently publish your book, promote and market your work so it gets noticed by the media, and run a Kickstarter project, among other things.

Visit Kids Menu Books for her hands-on math fun series. Intended as the first in a series, Lucy has already mapped out six more books to follow The Pancake Menu.
