  1. Welcome, Stacey!

    I have so many questions, I hardly know where to begin!

    Okay, I have to start somewhere so, how about the most obvious one: What got you into writing this series?

  2. Thanks Diana!

    When my own kids were ages 3 and 1, I was trying to find a book for them to read over and over to get them ready for Kindergarten and I couldn't find exactly what I wanted so I decided to create it!!! I never dreamed it would be used inside school districts across the country!

  4. That is something that intrigues me, Stacey, how you got into school districts. I'm partners with two other writers on a school bus safety program. Any tips on how we might expand beyond our local school systems?

  5. Everyone knows a teacher!!! I leveraged my own contacts when I was writing and editing my books to find teachers interested in reviewing them. Those teachers got excited about the project and brought the books back to their schools. The schools loved them and started purchasing them in bulk.

    Offer an incentive for the schools to want to order in bulk - free parent, teacher and/or kid workshop with orders over a certain number, I do 500, but my book is made to be ordered in a bulk quantity!

    Speak at schools to build your credibility and network, network, network because everyone does indeed know a teacher!!

  6. This is great info, Stacey! It takes a lot of networking these days to make any published book a success, and sounds like you're not afraid of work. Not only that, you work smart!
