Brain Burps About Books (supporting literacy)

I’m so thankful for my business because it means I’m able to donate to charities close to my heart.

Inspired by Pat Flynn, I decided to donate half of every Video Idiot Boot Camp tuition from Nov 24 through midnight December 6.

Like this: now through Dec 6, I'll make a donation to Pencils of Promise for half of every Video Idiot Boot Camp tuition. You'll get $25 off the course, and not only that, but the value of your contribution will be doubled because Pat Flynn, a friend I'm so very grateful for, will match everything up to $25,000!

Use the code pencils25 when you check out to get your discount!

I’ll have a free webinar to teach you how you can use video to explode your writing career, on Dec 6th at noon. Sign up here or copy and paste: http://www.katiedavis.com/pencils.

If you want to be your own CEO, run your Writer Business, and be able to do things like this, don’t miss my Black Friday sale for my four weeks of live coaching––it’s Writer Business 101, aka Crank It Up with Katie. It’s because of my business I’m able to donate to charities that are important to me.

On Black Friday it’ll only be $85 for four weeks! That comes down to $21.25 for an hour of me teaching you and Cyber Monday will go up if you miss it, and then the Early Bird price will be more than that.

If you're not on my mailing list go to KatieDavis.com/news and get on it so you can be notified when it goes on sale – and if you miss it, you can be notified when the early bird price ends so you don’t miss THAT.

My peeps always get the best deals and first notification.

In this episode you will listen to songs, jokes, and stories about how libraries and the librarians who staff them inspired and supported us as children, paving the way for our careers as children's authors and illustrators, including, though definitely not in alphabetical order as they are listed below.
Thanks for listening, and tune in next week when we announce all our contests for Little Chicken's Big Day or keep an eye out on my Facebook page.

Two notes - The first song is sung by Judy Freeman, and after the second song, that's Mordicai Gerstein talking.
