Author Accelerator CEO


I have a vision for a world where writers receive the editorial feedback, accountability, and support they need to write books worth reading. Publishing has changed so fast and become so accessible — but that doesn’t mean we should lower our standards. We should always aim for excellence. My mission is to teach writers the skills and habits they need to make a lasting impact on their readers. I started Author Accelerator to help writers do that by pairing them with book coaches trained in my systems and strategies.

I try to teach something useful every week in my newsletter. This is not a spammy newsletter. I show up, I think deeply about writing books worth reading, I respond to my followers and to developments in the world of publishing. On the sign up page, you can select a free email course for whether you are interested in writing or in book coaching — and they are great little courses. But the main reason to sign up for the newsletter is to learn, to build your skills, and to get inspired every week.

“Your posts are a feast for the soul. I always learn so much, and get such a heartfelt sense of motivation and deep understanding from your guidance. I’m always forwarding them to friends who don’t even write because your posts read like you’re answering questions specific to what I’m going through personally — and yet it feels bigger than that, like I can sense the presence of all your other newsletter subscribers who are echoing, `She’s writing this for ME.’ Somehow you’re able to shine a light on all our journeys simultaneously. Thank you, Jennie!” — RJ Lacko
