Creating and Self-publishing
Your Hardcover Picture Book
Making your own picture book can be hard work. If you don't know how to draw, an illustrator can be expensive. The formatting can be a challenge, and don't even get me started on printing costs! Might as well shelve it, right?
Wrong! Creating your own picture book is easier than ever. A.J. is here to show you how to finish your picture book, get it illustrated, and see it available for sale all without breaking the bank!
This class will take you from breaking down a manuscript to creating a dummy, finding and working with an illustrator, formatting the book, and finally making the book available for sale online and even in stores!
AJ recommends having a picture book manuscript of around 250 words before taking the class so that you can get started right away!
*Fee includes workshop materials, handouts,and a copy of AJ’s book Big Science: Galileo's Gamble

ABOUT THE BOOK
In this fun, kid-friendly, read-along book, children and their parents examine gravity through the eyes of a middle-school aged Galileo and his best friend Newton, who, spurred by the phenomenon of two objects falling, explore the question “Do heavier objects fall faster than lighter ones?” Children learn basic experimental design in the context of an easy to understand and engaging story that is sure to inspire further exploration and thinking.
