Over the last three and a half years I've been sharing the journey of being a writer on this site.
The last six months have been significant as my fiction career has started to take off, with Pentecost and Prophecy selling over 40,000 copies. Plus my business The Creative Penn has enabled me to become a full-time author-entrepreneur. It's been a busy time!
Now I'm sharing everything I've learned with you in two new multimedia courses in the hope that you can avoid the mistakes I've made and jump-start your writing success.
Learn from a New York Times bestselling author
CJ is the author of 16 novels, described as Thrillers with Heart. She has 2 series of medical thrillers, 2 books with environmental activist Erin Brockovitch and a number of stand-alone thrillers. CJ combines both traditional publishing deals with indie publishing to create a successful hybrid career.
In 2011, her novel Blind Faith hit #2 on the NY Times bestseller list, #4 on the USA Today list and sold 240,000 copies in 2 months. In 2012, her FBI thrillers Snakeskin and Bloodstained continue to dominate the Amazon charts, selling tens of thousands monthly.
This is my most comprehensive course on book marketing. It covers everything from knowing yourself and author branding, to what you can achieve without an author platform including Amazon sales page optimization, book reviews and advertising. Then we go into the author platform with your website, blogging, social networking, audio, video and much more. Read more here.
It's a multi-media course with over 5 hours of video and audio and 162 pages of text material to work through.
