Yes I always wanted to be a writer though didn’t get into the publishing business until I retired from my life work as a nurse.
Before joining Author Audience Academy, what was your biggest obstacle?
Knowing how to self-publish and best ideas to market.
What prompted you to become a part of Author Audience Academy? Specifically, what were you looking for?
I hungered for a mentor to help and encourage me in this path. Finding a Christian community full of prayer and wonderful resources has been fabulous!
What has been your biggest “Aha Moment” for you while in the program?
Writing a ‘permafree” book with lead magnets inside the book to build my email list.
What would you say to encourage other writers who are currently in Author Audience Academy along their journey? To writers considering becoming members?
Keep trying. Find a community to encourage and help you along the way. This is more than a group of writers; this is a family of people who care for each other.
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?
I want to write more books, books that transform hearts and lives. Deep down I would love to write a children’s classic. I also would like to grow my speaking ministry.
