It's time to bring your book to life.

Join this 9 day free training and walk step by step through everything you need to know to become a successful, published author. Starts June 1st!

You have a story.
Let's tell it.

I was in your shoes.


I had a story I knew was worth telling but doors kept shutting in my face. I struggled with writer's block. The editing process took me two years before I finally got my first book published. I went to book signing events and spent long hours just to sell 2-3 books.

I tried it all. Expensive marketing agencies, expert editors, publisher workshops...but nothing was working.

Something had to change. So I got to work soaking up as much knowledge as I could from every industry expert I could find. I consumed blogs, podcasts, free & paid content and gained even more tips & tricks through my own experiences.

Now I'm ready to share it all with you.

I don't want you to have to go down that rocky path with years of trials & tribulations.

Let's skip to the good part. :)


Live Launch:
The Path to Publishing

In this free 9 day training, you'll learn how to avoid writer's block, complete your story within months, navigate the publishing process, and finally add "published author" to your list of titles.

The Schedule

This training will take place over Zoom for the course of nine days. Each day, you'll be able to participate in a 30 minute webinar & training covering varying topics relevant to writing your story and becoming an author. See below for the content we'll cover.

Sessions Daily at 12 PM CST from 6/1-6/9


Getting In The Writer's Mindset

Writers dream of becoming an author, but don't succeed. Why? The fundamental reason is they do not have the right Mindset.

In this session, I'm going to tackle challenges we face as first-time writers.


You'll learn:

  • What gives you the power to become an author

  • 7 Different Strategies to get in the right MINDSET

  • How to move forward without burning out. 



Goal Setting Your Story

Writers often quit before they start because of lack of time. We all have priorities in our life, so how do we add a big project into our schedule?

In this session, you'll learn:

  • How long it takes to write your story

  • How to set realistic goals in a busy schedule

  • How to see results without getting burned out in the process



Starting Your Story

Writers often get stuck on how to start a story.  Whether you have a fiction or nonfiction book in you, I'm going to take you through an easy way to get your book started.

In this session, you'll learn:

  • What stories MUST have to be successful

  • Strategies to start your story and construct your main message or plot

  • How to write a story that readers can get hooked into and follow.



Hooking the Reader

Writers often tell me "I don't know if anyone will want to read what I write." It's a common "lack of confidence" challenge that people face. This session will focus on making your story compelling and believable to the reader.

In this session, you'll learn:

  • How to hook the readers into your story from the first line

  • Strategies that first-time authors MUST know to keep the reader engaged

  • Tools to ensure your story is believable and compelling through every scene



From the Author Perspective

Authors that have worked with Dream To Author have seen the challenges and had their own "Aha" moments. Learn what they did to publish their first book successfully.

In this session, you'll discover:

  • What authors have been challenged with in their own project

  • How they became successful and what you can do to achieve this goal

  • The secrets that authors wish they would have known writing their first book.



Making Successful Authors

If you're ready to become an author, get someone in your corner. Every first-time writer faces challenges they don't know or understand. Dream to Author has been helping writers through this for years.

In this session, you'll discover:

  • What the Author Creation Project is all about and get a special BONUS

  • What pain points writers face and what makes Author Creation Project better than webinars

  • How to write a book and publish with confidence.



What Holds Writers Back

Writers often experience hesitation about writing a book and getting help. We'll address apprehension and talk about the Writer's MINDSET that accomplishes Authorship.

In this session, you'll hear:

  • Directly from Authors that work with Dream To Author

  • Hear what is keeping you from your Dream to become a published author

  • How to be a committed writer



What Publishers Look For

Writers often get tripped up on the publishing process, especially because it's changed so much the last few years. Hear from publishers the trends they are seeing and what their expectations are for first-time writers.

In this session, you'll learn:

  • What first-time authors MUST know when submitting to publishers

  • What new expectations publishers have with authors

  • How to determine your path to publishing your book



Q&A Session

We'll have spent a week discussing important aspects that will get you to writing your own story. This is your chance to ask any questions about writing, publishing or marketing your first book.

In this session, you'll discover:

  • The opportunity to ask your own questions

  • Hear questions and challenges that other writers are facing

  • Get answers that will help you gain confidence in writing your own story.
