Curated Contractors

Editors, Illustrators & formatters for Children's Authors

What's that you say? You're publishing a book for kids?!


This is one of my most favorite subjects EVER in the whole entire history of the world.

When you move along on the self-publishing journey of a thousand sleepless nights, you are the writer first (of course), but then you move into the

😜highly coveted role of project manager.

You'll need to seek out, get to know, and eventually hire a range of people to work on your fantabulous book project with you.

And you want the best. Dazzling diamonds, if you will. 💎

These are the DIAMONDS you are seeking.

Laurie Wright
Laurie Wright

Children's author and publishing coach, Laurie Wright is a silly but smart, busy mom of three who laughs at her own jokes just a bit too much. 🤷

The minivan is her sanctuary, and the only place she can sing out loud without being shushed.

She’s known for her short term memory and extreme love of chips and dip. Usually on her best behavior, watch out when her filter wears off!

Never without her laptop and a notebook. Trust her with your kids and your books, but not your coffee!
