The Book Incubator facilitates opportunities for emerging authors to

create family legacies as they write and publish their stories in print


How good is that?


What's your story?


Our award winning signature program, From Storyboard to Print™, gently guides new authors and illustrators through the process of storytelling for publication. In a few short weeks, budding authors develop a story idea from concept to a professionally printed hard-cover book. Our workshops are carefully designed and follow a defined process. From Storyboard to Print™ workshops are fun, challenging and achievable. . By keeping the first stories relatively short (and seemingly simple), authors have the opportunity to understand the process of telling an engaging tale and to understand how to take that tale and tell it as book. The first books are usually 24 or 32 pages long and created in children's book format using illustrations to tell and support the written story. Do not let the children's book format deceive you ... While some of the stories published through the Book Incubator are fanciful tales, others are deeply personal stories and all told in children's book format.


We offer individual and group sessions, on-line and in person. Some people really enjoy working in small groups as it allows for connection with others as they create their story, while for others, the intensity of the story the want to tell sees the process work best done as an individual client. Both work. All authors are celebrated with a book launch.

No writing or drawing experience is necessary!
