One day, a story idea popped into your head!
It was such an intriguing idea you dared to believe that maybe (just maybe) it could become a real-life picture book.
Since then, you’ve held on to the secret dream of publishing your story. You imagined children picking up your book and asking their parents to read it again and again.
You began writing and researching.
Then you started wondering which advice to follow.
None of that sounds right (because it isn’t).
In order to be profitably published, you’ll need an open mind.
There’s a lot to learn before your book can be sold. It can feel overwhelming, especially when you’re not sure who to trust.
The good news is you CAN become a published picture book author! All you need is a story, the right guidance, and (here comes that phrase again) an open mind.
Let’s Imagine The Next Chapter Of Your Story
You’re proudly holding your published picture book a few months from now. Your name is on the cover. Adorable illustrations grace every page.
You get to read your book to groups of smiling children. Parents write to tell you how much they enjoy sharing your story with their little ones.
Your bank account has a long list of deposits. You’re already working on your second - or third - book. And you feel grateful to have met your coaches (that’s us 👋), who showed you the simple step-by-step process you followed to success.
Meet Your At Home Author Team
We’re Vicky, Brittany, & Chelsea - three teachers turned award-winning, bestselling authors (published by Disney, Scholastic, Penguin Random House, and Familius) who have taken everything we know about writing, publishing, and marketing a picture book and broken it down into small, actionable steps for you!
But what if . . .
All those mistakes you’re worried about making? We’ve been there, done that, and we’re thrilled that you get to benefit from our hard-earned knowledge.
What if I know nothing about being an author or the children’s book industry?
What if I've tried publishing before and it didn't work for me?
Sadly, we’ve heard this from many students who came to us after being burned by other publishing programs. We’re not naming, shaming, or blaming, but it does make us upset when we see bright authors feeling discouraged - or worse, cheated.
🎯 What makes our course different? We’re all teachers!
🎯 We know you’ll understand information better - and faster - when you’re having fun and getting support.
🎯 Our goal is to teach you the steps that you can repeat on your own (with lifetime access to the course) for book after profitable book.
🎯 You don’t have to take our word for it - keep reading for success stories from published picture book authors who started with us.
I have a full-time job or I’m a busy parent. When can I find the time to do this?
Trust us, we understand the demands of career and parenthood. We started our first books while we were still in the classroom all day!
Keeping it real, there’s a fair amount of work that goes into writing and publishing your picture book.
⭐ You CAN do this.
⭐ We’ll show you how in small steps so it’s faster, easier, and much more effective than trying to learn on your own.
⭐ Your time is precious - so why waste it doing unnecessary work?

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this course specific to picture books?
Yes! This course is specifically designed for anyone who wants to publish a children’s picture book. Unlike other courses, it is 100% tailored to the picture book market. Everything you need to know can be found inside.
Does this course guarantee I will be published?
This course is for budding authors who are serious about getting published. If you do the work, I see no reason why you can’t get your book in print. And if you still have questions after completing the course, you can post them in our exclusive Facebook community. We want you to get published too!
I know NOTHING about being an author or the children's book industry. Does that matter?
Nope! This course breaks down everything you need to know about becoming a published children’s book author into small, simple steps. No prior knowledge is required (or expected!) and you’ll find handy bonuses like the Glossary of Publishing Terms to help you along the way. You'll also have access to three industry experts via our exclusive Facebook groups so there is no shortage of support for you and your journey!
How is the Profitable Picture Book course unique?
Other courses show you only one way to get published. But there's more than one path to successful publication. We'll walk you through how to get it done YOUR way based on what your priorities are.
While other courses teach you either traditional OR self-publishing, we’ll teach you both. Understanding the industry as a whole will benefit you as a picture book author (no matter which route you end up pursuing).
One other important difference is that our course is designed to give you independence. We’re all teachers who love seeing our students succeed! Our goal is to TEACH you information that you can apply (book after book after book).

What our students say:
"This course IS my author's journey. If you're searching for a course that will teach you, inspire you, encourage you, and challenge you... look no further because THIS IS IT."
"Browsing through various courses on children's book publication, I did my research and homework. I didn't want to invest in something that would give me the basic Google search answers or Pinterest how-to blog. This course is literally the road from THINKING about the book all the way through the final publication.”
"I LOVE the step-by-step aspect of the course and the short but detailed videos that focus on all different aspects of the author process. The course is really well done, and definitely worth the time and money.
Profitable Picture Books: from Pen to Publication included way more information than I expected. It also included things I didn't even know I needed to know about! I can tell the authors have a lot of experience and knowledge they've used to create it."
Courtney Vowell Woodward
"I purchased the self-paced course and had weekly one-on-one coaching with Vicky Weber throughout the 6 month writing to publication process. The guidance and amount of information I received was invaluable to the success of my first book!"
"As a career switcher and someone who aspired to be a children's book author but knew nothing about the process, At Home Author allowed me to dive into the author world with the greatest of ease."
Courtney sold over 500 copies in her first month of publication!
