The Author Revolution™ Podcast

By Carissa Andrews

Do you have a novel idea that's been floating around in your head for far too long? Maybe you've even started writing it, but it never really went anywhere... We've reached the indie author revolution, my friends, and it's time to talk honestly about how to step into our role as the author we know we're meant to become. The reality is, you've been afraid to move forward and I totally get it. I was there once, too. Maybe you're stuck because you feel like you have more to research - either on your story or on writing and publishing in general. Whatever the case might be, it's time to take ownership of your dreams and dive into imperfect action. You are listening to a podcast that promises to help you get clear on how to move forward, as well as hand over actionable tips on what you can do to get your novel published as quickly as possible, without sacrificing quality. The great news is, this process is also 100% repeatable. I can't wait for you to reach your full author potential. Let's go forth and start your author revolution! SUBSCRIBE & REVIEW Are you subscribed to my podcast? If not, I'd love for you to do so today because I'd hate for you to miss a single episode. We have big plans coming up and I know you'll want to listen to learn all you can from the experiences and author advice we're about to share. If you're feeling extra awesome today, I would be so thrilled if you'd share a review of the episode or show in general. Reviews help other listeners decide whether or not to have a listen, too. Plus, I totally enjoy reading them. Thank you so much for being an awesome listener!
