My guest today is Jennie Nash who is the founder and CEO of Author Accelerator, a company that trains, certifies, and supports book coaches so they can help writers do their best work.
I invited Jennie to the show for many reasons.
First, she has really mastered the art of delivering as a coach and course creator. Her Author accelerator program truly is unmatched. We are lucky enough to have a little cohort of AA coaches inside The Hive and they all sing Jennie’s praises. So, I knew she was someone I wanted to know.
Secondly, Jennie is super smart and really committed to helping us all raise our voices and tell our stories through book writing.
Her own coaching clients have landed top New York agents and six-figure book deals with traditional publishing houses such as Penguin, Scribner, Simon & Schuster, and Hachette.
They’ve also won dozens of national indie book awards. And her Client KJ Dell’Antonia’s novel, The Chicken Sisters, was an instant New York Times bestseller and Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick.
Jennie and I had a really enlivening conversation about why every coach should write a book, what it really takes to write a GOOD book, and of course we dish about the books on our nightstands right now.
You should know that Jennie herself is the author of 11 books in 3 genres, including Blueprint for a Nonfiction Book: Plan and Pitch Your Idea and Blueprint for a Book: Build Your Novel from the Inside Out. Visit her at authoraccelerator.com and jennienash.com.
And if you are a coach on a mission, which I know you are or you wouldn’t be listening, get ready to get inspired to raise your own voice. I even had a breakthrough during this interview and Jennie’s got my wheels turning on my next book.
She’s just that good.
Here’s Jennie Nash!
