Speed Publishing Illustrated Children's Books

Heart To Hands Speed Publishing

There has never been a better time to be an illustrated children’s book author! It is easier than it has ever been to write, illustrate, layout, publish and distribute your book. You can, quite literally publish your book and distribute it worldwide with the push of a button.

And yet,

  • Some people struggle getting that first book written
  • They get bogged down in technical problems
  • Some spend thousands of dollars trying to get a book done
  • And some end up so frustrated that they just give up altogether


  • Because they are afraid to make a mistake
  • Because there are SO many companies selling technology and services they don’t need or aren’t right for what they are doing
  • Because they don’t know where to go to get the right services at the right prices
  • Because they’ve forgotten how to PLAY!


This course is designed to help you avoid all of those issues and show you how to have fun publishing your first illustrated children's book. In this 30 day program we take you from absolute beginner to published author using the world’s largest publishing and distribution system. Using a project based training system we show you how to use an illustrated children’s book project to learn how to:

  • Do Effective Market Research
  • Develop Compelling story Ideas
  • Test your ideas
  • Work with professional editors on your terms
  • Select and Hire Artists to create professional and unique images that YOU OWN

But the program doesn’t stop there!


In addition to taking you step-by-step through your first illustrated children’s book we also are going to train you on how to use the most POWERFUL open source and Freesource Graphic Editing Software on the market. Many author-publishers spend hundreds of dollars on software or monthly subscriptions for EXPENSIVE commercial Graphic Editing software such as Adobe Photoshop. The problem is that they don’t have any experience with these packages and many of the features of those programs aren’t needed for their publishing goals. In our training we will show you how to get FREE opensource software with the features you need and how to use it.

You will learn:

Where to get the best Free opensource Graphics editing software

  • How to install it
  • How to use it for graphic edit
  • How to create specific effects
  • How to format your final product for use on the web, in print, and on social media
  • You will also learn about other Free graphic editing systems

And much more.

In this 14 video training you will go from an absolute beginner to a working knowledge of these programs. With practice you will be able to create the images you want, understand the process of graphic editing and have a powerful set of tools in your publishing tool box for future projects.

Finally, when you’ve published your first book you are going to want to give it a platform to help it standout from the crowd. While there are many commercial websites, marketing companies and professionals who will want to charge you to promote your book with a webpage or a special domain, we are going to show you how to do it for yourself, FOR FREE or inexpensively.
