Apologies about the difficulties with downloading the video! The awesome Jo at Glass Slipper Webdesign walked me through it and everything is all set!
If' you've already downloaded the video, please try to download it again--it won't charge you.
If you haven't, I hope you check out my first installment for young writers! :)

Published at 14, Jess understands what it's like to be a young writer. Now, at 22 years old, Jess has 20 tween novels published with Simon & Schuster. Over 500,000 copies of her Canterwood Crest series books are in print.
Jess debunks common publishing myths and highlights truths in this 31 minute long video.
Despite the title, TOP 10 is a useful guide for a writer of any age seeking publication.
Jess has visited many classrooms both in person and via Skype. She wanted to create a video for viewers to be able to pause, take notes, or refer back to.
If schools and libraries use Jess's videos, they are able to have an author "visit" without the high costs of travel, paying the author, or dealing with any tech glitches.
Some praise for Jess's teaching:
"Jess Burkhart's Skype author visit was an inspiration to my Middle School Book Club students. She did an amazing job integrating her own personal life story into a motivational talk about the writing process. My students were left feeling excited about doing some writing of their own!" ~Cathie Bashaw Morton, Library Media Specialist, Millbrook Central School District, New York
"Jessica Burkhart is an excellent speaker who engages students by connecting with them through her many experiences as an author. She is engaging and inspiring while encouraging students to follow their dreams and persevere in their writing. She also shares tips on how to get their writing noticed. I highly recommend this experience for your students!" ~Abbe Waldron, Library Media Specialist, Wamogo Regional High School

Just a heads up during a CRAY-ZEE business time to say that I moved to WordPress! I'm in the process of setting up my blog but you can find me at jessicaburkhartblog.com.

I wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who have downloaded my first e-book!
I sooo appreciate it! Those of you who have gone the extra step and reviewed the book--hugs to you! I'm taking your constructive criticism and will apply it to my second e-book, co-written with my friend Bri that comes out on January 26.
I'm also retaking the photos for the EBT guide and will upload them soon.
If the EBT guide keeps selling a lot of copies, it will allow me the funds to take a break from traditional publishing for a bit and work only on Canterwood Crest e-novellas and West Coast Prep e-novellas. :) So, please keep spreading the word about my beauty guide, reviewing it if you like, and tell your friends.
Finally, I'm high in the tower of my Pink Castle aka my living room :D and working on WILD HEARTS since it is due 2/1.
Blog again soon! xx

This is the first in a series of beauty e-books.
Grab it now for $.99! The next book will be all about at home spa treatments. :)

I really, really hope you like this guide! I put tons of time and effort into it. Thank you to Bri Ahearn for helping me with the cover concept and for proof reading.
