WRITER ROLL CALL! Are you confident you have a stand-out author brand that will attract your ideal readers and convert them to life-long fans?

I’ve noticed many authors don’t give much thought to developing their brand, even though it’s THE core element to a successful marketing strategy. Others know they need a stronger brand, but aren’t sure where to start. Or maybe they’ve tried to create a cohesive brand, but it’s just not working.

It’s super frustrating to spend hours (and tears...and gallons of coffee) laboring over your manuscript, only to get crickets when you launch. I don’t wish that on anyone.

So, for the last couple years I’ve been hosting a bi-annual one-week Author Brand Challenge designed to give women authors the tools to get started or to elevate their author brand. (Pop over to my stories to see testimonials from previous participants). The challenge kicks off Monday with a Discover Your Brand fillable workbook, live video Q&As with me, a private Facebook group with daily prompt posts, and a daily email with a brief teaching and action steps.

It’s designed to be practical and create clarity and results, so you won’t want to miss! (Plus, it’s completely FREE!) Invite a friend to keep you accountable and let’s do this together! 
SIGN UP VIA MY BIO LINK! 
QotD: What’s the biggest thing you’re struggling with right now in your branding and marketing? OR Tag an author in the comments whose brand you really love—and tell us why!

TODAY IS WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY. I can’t think of a more important thing to celebrate preserving than the value of every person and their life.

Mental illness (depression, anxiety, etc.) is a leading cause of suicide. This problem is so pervasive and yet so rarely discussed with knowledge and compassion.

Mental illness wears many faces and does not discriminate. The causes and treatments are as varied as the people it effects.

But, for many people, the common denominator for healing remains the same. Community. Support and community play a key role in suicide prevention, both for the person struggling with a mental illness, and for friends and family members also affected by it.

This is a topic still raw in my heart. A close family member is a suicide survivor. Other close family members struggle with anxiety and depression, as I do at times. My parents took my little cousin into their home for months at a time between babyhood and four years old, because her mama was deep in a battle with mental illness.

It’s not a joke. It’s not an imaginary illness insta-cured by inspirational memes. It is a powerful struggle that affects so many at a core level.

So, what can you do? Foster community. If you see someone withdrawing or on the outskirts, invite them in. If you haven’t heard from a friend in awhile, check up on them. Sit with them in the dark.

If you have this struggle, reach out and get help. Be honest with yourself and others about where you’re at. Learn how to listen to the truth and reject the lies. And know there’s hope and you’re special, irreplaceable, and worth the fight.

God bless you. Celebrate life.

P.S. These books are written by women who know this struggle firsthand and address it with power and compassion in their books. My current WIP will likely touch on this topic as well. I highly recommend their work.

@rfgammonauthor DREW MY BABIES. Say hello to Rene', Simon, and Nate, the Teen Trio in #TheDividedNation! I love this fan art sooo much and it was a great reminder for me this week because I've struggled with wanting to do so many things, but how do I know which things God wants me to do?

News flash: we should reach for the stars, but we should reach for the stars God wants us to reach for, and we should never forget to be faithful to the stars He's already given us. So, that's what I'll be working on, and remembering that The Infidel Books have already helped people... It is a great reminder. ♥

Oh, the things you write on vacation. This one gave me all the magical feels. Written as both a scene and character study during a trip to Whidbey Island this summer, this short piece drew inspiration from staring out at the Olympic Mountains across Puget Sound. This will definitely find its way into one of my novels someday. 🧙‍♂️

💫 "Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again." - C. S. Lewis 💫
•
Is there an author that you tend to quote a lot? Someone whose words always encourage and inspire you?
•
For me, that would be #CSLewis. I love the #ChroniclesofNarnia as well as Lewis' faith-based works, and have several quotes hung throughout my room or incorporated into my writing.
•
So, when I stumbled upon this Lewis quote about fairytales and growing up, I realized it was PERFECT for Dust. Drawing on the elements of a fairytale reimagined and finding a sprinkle of magic even as you grow up. •
Alright, your turn! What is an author whose words have impacted you and reflects in your own writing and life in some way? Share below!

(Thank you for the lovely graphic @aleighacisrael_author!)

I keep promoting my fiction books so much that I feel like “Bad Con Adventures” often gets left out 😭 If you enjoy my panel version of this at conventions, you’ll love this over-the-top memoir experience into the terrible, horrible things that I did in my early twenties.

Thank you @madisonbrown365 for this gorgeous fanart of #Fern, my main character in #TheGirlWhoCouldSee!
.
Madison is such a sweet soul and give me this art piece and a little gift bundle at @realmmakers this year. It totally made me smiled and was one of the highlights of my week 😁 Go check out her page and all her other beautiful art! 💫
.
I also set up the new bookshelf I bought myself for my birthday and got some of my favorite books on it. Maybe I'll do a shelf tour soon? Would anyone have fun seeing that? Do you have a favorite piece of fanart?
.
Hope your day is going well, friends! My weekend was a little insane, but clinging to God and trusting things will work together in His timing. 😊

✨ A L L  C H I L D R E N,  E X C E P T  O N E,  G R O W  U P. - PETER PAN ✨
.
Hello, friends! I'm just going to drop this little quote here. I know I've posted quite a bit of #PeterPan and #Dust content lately, but there is a reason for that...
.
And today is a big day.
.
One I probably won't be able to tell you much about for a few weeks yet, but consider this my little whisper of hope in your ear-- I have a secret, and I think you'll like it. 😉
.
Now, I'm very curious... How many of you have actually *read* the original JM Barrie Peter Pan? Comment below if you have or haven't! 😊
.
Ps. If you have, then you well know about the sociopathic nature of our dear little Peter. 😜 I'll admit he has some rough edges, but in Dust I really wanted to dive deeper into why he was that way and round out those edges just a bit. And someday you'll get to see for yourself my take on what might happened if the boy who never grew up...suddenly began to.

This looks like a charming place to stay, don’t you think? I’ve been seeing a lot of fall posts and pictures that include copious amounts of pumpkins lately. It’s all making me think of Halloween a little early, and I thought it was time to post a bit of spookiness. Have you ever stayed in a place that you thought could be haunted? Tell me your stories below!

Shoutout to my lovely author friend @elizabeth_newsom and her beautiful new release, #CaptiveandCrowned!
👑
It was a highlight to get to give this sweet girl a hug and catch up a bit at @realmmakers. I'm so proud of all her hard work and the soul she has poured into this story that first released on Wattpad and is now out into the world. ♥️
👑
Here's a bit more about it:

The half-dragon King of Torva needs a queen, but the human bride he has captured may prove to be more trouble than she's worth.

Evelyn is on a mission to find her mom, who left her family soon after Evelyn was born. But things go terribly wrong when crashing a high school graduation party leads to her being mistaken for her sister, kidnapped, taken to another world, and married to the king of the realm.

As she plots her escape with the assistance of a handsome and mysterious duke, she becomes a pawn in a bigger game, a game of betrayal, murder, and revenge. Someone wants her dead, and the only way to avoid assassination is to escape Torva.

But the King isn't willing to let her leave easily - and neither are the assassins.
👑
Have you met Elizabeth or gotten a copy of this one yet? Do you have a favorite dragon-meets-princess story? I'm excited to dive into this sometime soon.

Happy Monday everyone!! ✨

I feel like I haven’t been very active on here lately and I want to get better at that. Honestly, I’ve just been feeling pretty unmotivated about the whole social media thing... That’s probably why I’ve been waiting till 10-11 at night to post on here. Instagram is one of my favorite social media platforms and I always have fun on here and love chatting with my writer and reader friends. So I want to start posting earlier again and being more active. :) ✨

#readingadventuresaug19 Day 19: Book recs. So I haven’t actually read Shiver, but I mean it’s Maggie Stiefvater and I do plan to read it before the end of this year! I have read all the other books in the picture (and written one of them ;)) Fawkes and The Coldest Girl in Coldtown are two of my all time favorite books that I highly recommend 😍✨ #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookobssessed #bookcommunity #bookishpost #bookrecs #thisisbookishcommunity #bluebooks #huesofblue #bookphoto #bookpic #bookphotography #readergram #readersofinstagram #fawkes #coldestgirlincoldtown #edgeofeverything #shiver #weaponicean

✨ I brought a bit of Neverland to my room.✨
.
Also known as... I may have a slight #peterpan #art obsession. ;) Swipe through for a closer look. .
In my defense, most of these art pieces are gifts from lovely friends and readers who have been such a kind support of my #peterpanretelling, #Dust. (Thank you @hannahprewettart) I've gathered quite the collection, and have been wanting to find a way to display them all, and so when I saw these gold star dangles it just seemed perfect.

What do you think? Do you collect art? How do you display it? Let me know below!

💫 PIXE DUST CRATE UNBOXING 💫
.
Can you tell I had too much fun with this gorgeous #headscarf made by @miakrafts? This beautiful scarf is inspired #TheHorseandHisBoy and is perfect if someone needed to travel unnoticed through Tashbaan or hide from the sweltering heat.
.
I was so thrilled to see that this box was all about The Horse and His Boy, filled with some of my favorite Narnia characters: Aravis and Shasta. Growing up, I loved both of these outcasts who had the courage to escape from the harsh lives they lived and do whatever they could to reach Narnia.
.
Let's be real—I'd pretty much do anything to reach the magical, lush world of Narnia too😉 What about you?
.
I was also thrilled by the other items in the @pixie_dust_official box: A beautiful "Narnia and the North" pin by @lularocks, A #TashbaanMarketplace-inspired candle, an iced sherbert recipe card, some sandy dust in a bottle and a gorgeous handpainted #dustjacket.
.
The Horse and His Boy is by far one of my favorite Narnia books. Did you enjoy this one? Which was your favorite?
