Publishing it is easier than you think.
I know you want to jump right into all the details about the program, but we have to acknowledge the elephant in the room…
How do you know this program is for you?
Time is of the essence, so I figured we might as well kick things off by discussing this frequently asked question. And since I want to respect your time, I’m going to dive right into the answer.
You’re a hard worker who is always putting others, especially children, before yourself. You’re passionate about helping the next generation grow in their confidence and creativity. But you struggle to pinpoint the right time and place to start. You often find yourself saying, “It’s not the right time yet…”
But, you’re finally ready to pursue your dreams and use the gift that has been within you all along.

One of my favourite parts of the Publishing Mastermind is the long-lasting friendships and community it creates. I can confidently say that each one of the authors that have come through the Publishing Mastermind is now a good friend of mine. And I’m sure they would say the same about their fellow Masterminders, too.
Working with Miriam, is honestly one of the highlights of my life. She really cares about you, and your project. You will be changed for the better; both as a writer, and a human being. You couldn't choose a better Coach/Mentor - Publisher.

Are you ready to explore the gift within you and become a published author within one year’s time? If you said YES, then all you need to do is click the button below:
If you said no, then odds are you still have a few questions about the program. Below you’ll find the answers to all of our Frequently Asked Questions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
To get the most out of this program, I recommend attending each LIVE Mastermind Group Call and each Monthly Coaching Call with your personal Author Coach, which adds up to approximately 2 hours every month.
The only additional time you will need to commit to this program is the time you will spend developing your children’s book (e.g., writing it, editing it, picking an illustrator, etc.)
Many authors who come through the program worry about the time commitment, but what I have noticed is that even the busiest authors publish their books within the year. We've even had a full time university student publish during her graduating year.
At the end of the day, the amount of time you spend on your book is up to you, but you CAN do it!
Absolutely! The MLP Team will provide tutorials on how to navigate the program and is available via phone, text, or email to answer any questions. We’re here to help!
The Publishing Mastermind is an investment, but it will save you money in the long run.
What I mean is, the first time you self-publish a book it is very common to make mistakes that end up costing you.
For example, with my first book I spent thousands of extra dollars on an illustrator – and I didn't get the copyrights to the illustrations! Now as an experienced author, I would never make that deal. That is just one example of where I spent a lot more money than I needed to.
Knowing what you need to spend money on, and where you can afford to save is invaluable.
Lots of authors ask me this question, and I often ask them this in return: Why don’t you feel worthy as a writer?
When you tell yourself things like "my book isn't good enough" you limit yourself.
To help aspiring authors discover their confidence and rest assured that their story is the best version it can be, we include three insightful rounds of editing in Publishing Mastermind. Your story will be thoroughly edited by Sharon Jennings, one of Canada's best children's authors and editors.
You have what it takes to make it as an author. All you have to do is say YES.
Currently, I am only accepting authors looking to publish their own children’s picture book.
The short answer is YES. Our team of experts are here to support you & help you perfect your story.
Our Senior Editor (Sharon Jennings) is an experienced & successful children’s book author and editor who provides editorial support to all the authors who come through the Publishing Mastermind, ensuring that your manuscript is perfectly polished before it goes to print.
Our Junior Editor (Lauren Bertone) holds a Bachelor’s Degree in English & Creative Writing, making her the best candidate to work alongside you as you draft your manuscript. She provides additional editorial support and writing advice so that you can publish your book with confidence.
That’s alright. Even if your first draft is still in the works, we would love to work with you.
Though bestselling status is never guaranteed, we are confident in the marketing strategies we provide to our authors. So far, every author who has published through the Publishing Mastermind has achieved bestseller status.
The Publishing Mastermind is designed to give you complete creative control of your book. This means you get to pick an illustrator that’s right for you. Since illustrators offer a wide range in pricing, this cost is not included in the program.
For printing, we set you up with print-on-demand (POD) at no extra cost, which will make your book available to print and purchase. But if you decide to outsource to a printing company, that cost is not included in the program.
Publishing my first children’s book changed my life. Even more importantly, it changed children’s lives, too.
I know first-hand what it’s like to have a message to share with the world, know exactly how you want to share it, but also feel too overwhelmed to do it alone. It’s not easy to make decisions and stay motivated when there is nobody to help give you advice.
By the time my book was published, I kept wondering how many other talented authors were out there, struggling just like I did. So, I decided to become the exact guide I was looking for all those years ago.
Now, I have no words to explain the joy that comes from seeing these authors live their dreams, hold their published children’s books in their hands, and inspire children everywhere. I want to help you do the same.
I want to help you turn your story idea into a book children will read for years to come.
I want to help you publish your children’s book with zero stress included.
I want to help you launch your book, reach bestseller status, and see your message make a difference in children’s lives.
If you’ve ever felt the way I did when I first started — if you’ve ever felt overwhelmed, lost, or maybe even discouraged — then I want you to know that you CAN do this. You CAN publish an inspirational children’s book and watch it be shared and loved by those around you.
But first, you have to say YES.
Let’s work together to get your message into the hands of children who need it.
