Why is this course priced higher than your other courses?
That's a great question and deserves a thoughtful answer. And here it is:
Not only does this course have a LOT of good, incredibly useful content (like all of my courses <g>), but there is more video content and each lesson also includes an audio download to listen on the go, while my other courses do not.
But not only do I feel the course is worth the price due to content, I also want to motivate you. The goal of this course is to save you a lot of time, frustration and maybe even some embarrassment (learn from my mistakes!). But to do all that, you actually have to finish the course!
My belief is that when we writers invest money in our careers, we also put in the time and effort we need to take full advantage of that investment--and research probably bears this out.
With this investment, you will learn what you need to act as a professional in the wonderful world of children's publishing. And the more writers who know and understand the business, the better it is for all of us.
I hope to see you in the course!
Note that I also offer options for installment payments if that works better for you.
