 They’re Back ! ! !
To answer your questions about Spotlighting and Promoting Your Books and Your Brand
We hear a lot of buzz about branding–but what the heck does it actually mean? Why is it important? And how do you–someone who only wants to write and/or illustrate, darn it–turn yourself into a “brand name”?
Learn from the masters! Julie Gribble and Roxie Munro will help you tame the branding beast. Starting with profile-building basics and explaining platforms, they will expand into taking the fear out of YouTube. (In case you didn’t know, the world now runs on YouTube videos.)
Whether you’re pre-published or on you’re fiftieth book, this exciting program will benefit you.
Let’s build something truly essential. Knock down the walls with a brand new you.

Julie Gribble is the founder of KidLit TV. She produces works for children and the children’s literature community in both the United States and Great Britain. While a Children’s Literature Fellow at Stony Brook Southampton, she founded KidLit TV to help inspire children to learn and read. Julie is also founder of the upcoming TeenLit TV which will feature video programs for YA fans. Julie has been nominated for two Emmy Awards and is a multi-award-winning writer, screenwriter, filmmaker, and producer. Her charming picture book, Bubblegum Princess, is based on a true story about Kate Middleton and was released on the day the first royal baby, who we now know as Prince George, arrived. Copies of the book have been donated to underprivileged children in the US and to children’s hospices in the UK.
A book is an invitation to go on an adventure.

Roxie Munro is the author/illustrator of more than 40 nonfiction, STEM/STEAM, and concept books for children, many using “gamification” to encourage reading, learning, and engagement  (including Mazescapes; Amazement Park; the Inside-Outside Books: New York City [New York Times Best Illustrated Award], Washington DC, Texas, London, Paris, and Libraries; Feathers, Flaps & Flops;Doors; Gargoyles, Girders & Glass Houses; Ranch; Circus; Mazeways: A to Z; Rodeo; Go!Go!Go!; and Inside-Outside Dinosaurs). Her books have been translated into French, Italian, Dutch, Chinese, and Japanese.

Prior to creating children’s books, Roxie worked in Washington DC as a TV courtroom artist and did editorial illustration for the Washington Post, the Associated Press, and the New Yorkermagazine, among other publications. Roxie does school visits, and lectures widely at conferences, libraries, and workshops. She lives in Manhattan and has a studio in Long Island City.
