How It Works:

We make publishing a book easy and fun for kids of any age!

With your instant download, just like in a “real book”, your child will create the elements of their book - from the illustrations and story text to designing their book cover, title, dedicated and ‘about the author’ pages. Then, when you’re finished we’ll turn your child’s work into a hardcover book. Whether an autobiography, short story, book of poems or picture book – the Author Kit lets your child’s imagination run wild.

The Author Kit includes everything your child needs to write, illustrate and publish a professionally bound, hardcover book. Your kit includes an instant download filled with writing activities, step-by-step instructions and the pages your child will create their book with. Plus, your guide, The Write Thing and his friends, will help guide your child through the publishing process step-by-step.

Once your child has finished creating their book pages, simply ship the materials back to us with the prepaid shipping label included with your purchase.

Then, we will publish the book in our state-of-the-art facility and you will receive your child’s one-of-a-kind hardcover book approximately 20 business days later.

Frequently Asked Questions!

Q. How do I achieve the best, most colorful results when creating my book?
A. For illustrating, use washable markers because they produce the most vivid reprints (try to stay away from the bright neon colors as they do not reproduce well). For writing, use black ink. Do not use colored pencils, #2 pencils or crayons, as they do not reproduce well when printed.


Q. Can I paste and glue photos onto the kit pages?
A. You bet. Simply scanning the photo directly onto the pages is the preferred method, but if you do choose to adhere photos, we recommend using a glue stick. We recommend using only high-resolution images for the best results. Please note: your original photo will not be returned. We recommend using only high-resolution images for the best results.


Q. Can I use White-Out on the pages?
A. You can! However, it may leave light “shadows” on the finished pages. For this reason, we recommend using it sparingly. Also, it is better to use the white-out correction tape rather than the white-out correction fluid.


Q. Are there any guarantees on the published books?
A. Yes, there’s no risk to parents. Our books are 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed. If you are in any way dissatisfied, you can return it directly to us for a replacement or full refund. We will issue a replacement or complete refund.
