“Shelley is today’s Dan Poynter. Her books and advice are golden. She shares the details of self-publishing plus great marketing tips. She is the real deal and her book, Self-Publishing Books 101, proves it.” – Scott Bilker

It All Started in Fifth Grade

I was first paid for my writing in fifth grade after winning a nonfiction writing contest. Little did I know I would resign from a 12-year career as a Physical Therapist over 20 years later to write and coach authors full-time.  You can read more of my story here.

Thousands of authors have been coached through my books, training programs, online events, seminars, and more. I have over a decade of experience speaking to groups of all sizes; from small workshops to keynote presentations in front of thousands. And I teach from personal experience, not theory. I have been writing and publishing books since 2008 and have personally authored over 40 books including print, e-book and audio book formats.

A Best-Selling Book

Are you ready to give birth to a best-selling book you can be proud of without spending thousands of dollars? If so, I can help. I teach authors how to self-publish through their own publishing company (hint: it’s easier than you think)!

Learn to Sell More Books

I help you sell more books and products without being pushy or self-promotional by working smarter not harder so that you have more time to do the things you love. Set it up once and let it work for you over and over. I call it my Author Automation system.

Helping Authors Stay Focused

My heart is to help authors who are Christian to keep their focus on Christ as they write, publish and market. Therefore I open my webinars in prayer, include my faith in my training and pray for my clients by name every week.
