"Kjersten provided me incredible insight to get started as a first time author. She covered everything from how to negotiate royalties, to where to find barcodes, and how to build a marketing plan. If I had needed to research it all on my own it would have taken months. I was able to successfully publish my book on time and sell thousands of copies. I cannot recommend working with Kjersten enough!"

GET PLUG-N-PLAY ILLUSTRATOR /AUTHOR AGREEMENTS

No one enjoys writing legal jargon and pages and pages of legal agreements, right?

That's why I've put together the most common agreements you'll need when working with an illustrator - an NDA and a Work-for-Hire agreement - and they cover everything you need as an author. It's hard to know what should be included in an agreement to protect yourself and ensure you're covering all of your bases, so you can get these pre-made template agreements here and avoid having to recreate the wheel. BONUS? I'm throwing in a Non-Disclosure Agreement you can send to editors or anyone else that reviews your manuscript.
