Welcome!

If you are a writer who has always dreamt of becoming a published author and you’re looking for a little guidance, you’ve come to the right place.

If you are a published author frustrated by how opaque and insider-basebally this industry can be, there’s room for you on this couch, too.

Just like my bestselling publishing guidebook BEFORE AND AFTER THE BOOK DEAL, I want this substack to be a safe, restorative place where you can get real talk, actionable writing and publishing tips, and a couple of laughs.

Why subscribe?

I am personally committed to helping writers succeed emotionally and financially, so your support makes me feel seen. If you are not a paid subscriber, you’ll receive the appetizer of my publishing knowledge, but you won’t receive the entree. If you need extra protein, consider upgrading your subscription so you can join the other members of our creative community.

However you are here and whatever you are here for, I’m so glad to have you. 

Write on,

Courtney
