Authors Talk About It


I know it’s been a minute, but thanks for sticking with me! With things getting crazy at work and at home, I really need to stick to a writing schedule. Anyone have any tips or tricks?


I recently discovered a writing blog, Authors Talk About It, and it’s a really great resource for writers. They offer a podcast and classes on how to market your book. Maybe once I get my butt into gear and start writing, I might use their services!

Currently ATAI is taking nominations for their second annual Book Award Contest. The great thing about this contest is it’s giving new authors a chance at exposure and critiques.

ATAI was created by Rob and Janelle Alex, both doctors who are passionate about marketing and teaching people how to market themselves. They have created courses tailored to authors, like “How to Write a Powerful Bio for Authors” and “Outside the Box Marketing for Authors”. Both of these sound really interesting!

This year ATAI is hosting a Book Award Contest, and the prize package is pretty sweet. The Grand Prize package includes:

  • promotion of your work on all their sites
  • features on their sites
  • podcast interview
  • invitation into private mastermind (sounds so swanky)

Everyone who enters receives a critique/review, which I think is extremely helpful for up-and-coming writers. The more exposure, the better…right?

If you’re a writer and want to enter your book into the contest, check it out here.

Good luck everyone!
