Series: The Author Revolution™ Podcas‪t‬

Do you have a novel idea that’s been floating around in your head for far too long? Maybe you’ve even started writing it, but it never really went anywhere…

We’ve reached the indie author revolution, my friends, and it’s time to talk honestly about how to step into our role as the author we know we’re meant to become.

The reality is, you’ve been afraid to move forward and I totally get it. I was there once, too. Maybe you’re stuck because you feel like you have more to research – either on your story or on writing and publishing in general.

Whatever the case might be, it’s time to take ownership of your dreams and dive into imperfect action.

You are listening to a podcast that promises to help you get clear on how to move forward, as well as hand over actionable tips on what you can do to get your novel published as quickly as possible, without sacrificing quality. The great news is, this process is also 100% repeatable.

I can’t wait for you to reach your full author potential.

In today’s episode, we’re talking about just how many books you should be planning out in your series–and more specifically, why the TYPE of series matters most. Have a listen!
