Self Publishing Journeys

Episode 29: Jennifer Blanchard

Jennifer BlanchardJennifer Blanchard is a bestselling author, professional novelist, and a story coach who turns struggling novelists into writers of books that keep readers hooked from page one.

It took her 18 years to publish her debut novel because – Jennifer says – she fell victim to the belief that because she had read lots of stories it meant that she could also write one.

Jennifer has written fiction and non-fiction and has been featured on numerous high-profile online websites such as Huffington Post, CopyBlogger & ProBlogger.

In her most recent article  – in Huffington Post – she explained why she had decided to write nine books by the end of the year in order to ramp up her author earnings.
