Did you always dream of being a published author or is this something new for you?
When I graduated from high school I told everyone that I wanted to be a writer, but through the “encouragement” of others, I decided to go a more practical route and got a job as an administrative assistant.
Several years later, through the encouragement of my husband, I started writing magazine articles. At that time, I felt that I didn’t have enough expertise to write books. A few years back, after learning that Kindle books can be short, I wrote my first book.
Before joining Author Audience Academy, what was your biggest obstacle?
I lacked consistency. This was in part due to not keeping writing top of mind, and lack of accountability.
What prompted you to become a part of Author Audience Academy? Specifically, what were you looking for?
I had already published some books before joining AAA, so my biggest need was community and accountability.
What has been your biggest “Aha Moment” for you while in the program?
Getting “God ideas” rather than trying to figure everything out on my own.
What would you say to encourage other writers who are currently in Author Audience Academy along their journey? To writers considering becoming members?
I’d like to encourage current members to be involved in the group. This includes everything that goes on in the Facebook group such as weekly accountability, prayer support, and feedback. In addition to that, participate in the Writers’ Block Parties, Q&A calls, and other live events. In addition to all the great teaching, a strong community is a huge difference between AAA and other online training programs for authors.
For those considering joining, I just want to say that you won’t be sorry! Shelley offers so much value, and the community is warm and encouraging.
What’s next for you in regards to writing, publishing and marketing your books? What are you dreaming of and moving toward in this upcoming season?
While I’ve had a measure of success with my writing, I believe now is the time to really ramp things up. I’m transitioning from doing a lot of writing for clients to focusing on writing more of my own content. This should result in publishing books more frequently, increased income, and a stronger platform.
