Children or Colored Illustrated Books

We love creating and publishing children’s books! However, publishing a full color book tends to require more time and is more expensive on all levels. Each book is as unique and different as their author and we welcome children’s book submissions. The cost for publishing varies depending on the degree of design work needed. Contact us so we can give you accurate pricing quote.


I have a manuscript. What do I do now?

We get it. We know the feeling. And we also know how to help you. If it be you have a large platform and are doing speaking engagements on a regular basis and are wanting to provide those attending material to walk away with, or you are dreaming of being able to share your story with your community, friends and family, we have exactly what you need to make it happen. And the best part, we love doing it. We are a one-on-one boutique publishing company and believe your story is worth being seen in print and placed on book shelves.


I have a book I published with someone else and I am not happy with the quality. What do I do?

Our hearts hurt and we deeply sympathize when we have an author come to us sharing their experience publishing with someone else and have been let down in the process. You may not be happy with the quality of the book or maybe it’s the way you were lead through their publishing process — it’s a sad truth that not every publishing experience will leave an author with a finished product they are proud of. But don’t fret. You do have options and we would love to share them with you.



I have an idea for a book. Where in the world do I begin?

This is the fun part. After publishing books since 2009, we have finally launched educational courses to help authors just like you. We strive to educate authors, writers and dreamers in all the areas of publishing. From getting your story onto paper (or screen), understanding the process of publishing, and tools + tricks to help succeed after going to print. We also offer throughout the year writing exercise courses that are intended to challenge, motivate, strengthen and inspire your creativity. To learn more and to sign up for a class, head on over to our school.
