What indie authors are saying about the Author's Planner:

If you're new to me and my work, here's why I created these planners...

As a working mom, I often struggled to find "enough time" to write and make progress toward my creative goals.

I thought, "With my schedule, it's going to take me decades to publish." 😩

I was working 90 hours every two weeks, with 56-60 commuting hours in those same two weeks. I quickly became frustrated, watching my pals finish their manuscripts and publish their latest titles.

And so I got my problem-solving brain to work and began sketching up schedules. 

I used spreadsheets to track exactly where my time was going. 

Then, I took some serious time (during my commute) to get crystal clear on my goals and what I wanted from my writing.

I tried so many planners in those days, but they all fell flat. 

They were too general, their spaces too small to write in, and their prompts too vague to have any real or lasting impact. 

And some planners, well, they were just too pretty, and I felt like I couldn't "scar" them with another "false start."

I was inspired by an entrepreneur's new planner, but it was so far outside my budget that I couldn't afford it before it sold out for the season. 

So I finally decided to create my own planner for writers like me.

The Author's Planner was born.

I created it from my own needs and desires to stay organized and not give up on my writing.

Two weeks into the initial creation phase with little sleep, little to eat, and rarely time with my family, my fingers flew across the keys and my mouse clicked away as I built the first iteration of my very own planner: The 2018 Author's Journal. 

The planner (as it's more accurately identified) has come a long way since then, but it's about your entire life and the myriad ways everything connects to and affects your creative endeavors.

This planner (from the beginning and through its various evolutions) has helped me conquer my educational goals (double- and triple-time classes for my BA and MA) and even spend more high-quality time with my family while still building my small business, undertaking freelance work, and building my fiction writing career.

This planner helps me manage all of my life and all the stages of the publishing cycle. 

  • - No more story ideas and project notes lost in myriad notebooks floating around my house...

  • - No more starting a planner only to quit after 3 weeks...

  • - No more keeping 3 or 4 separate planners to track the writing, editing, publishing, marketing, and the rest of my life separately...

I love pretty notebooks and planners, but I hate having too many intake systems to manage and organize (and protect from the kids 😂).

I needed efficiency, not redundancy, and I certainly didn't need any more work to do.

Now, I have a single comprehensive planner to organize the chaos and madness of writing, publishing, and living "the writer's life."

I took the leap and shared the planner, and, to my delight, it has helped so many other writers better live fulfilling lives, weigh their priorities, and ensure writing is a central part of their lives. I'm deeply moved by the messages I received and the stories I've been honored to hear in person at writing events.

This planner has helped so many people and exceeded what I imagined was possible.

This authorship planner is different from your typical planner:

This authorship planner is different from your typical planner because it:

  • - Track your submissions for contests, anthologies, journals, or agents...

  • - Record your income and expenses in a way that helps you more closely examine how well you're allocating your resources...

  • - Sketch out and refine a completely customizable 12-month marketing plan so you can focus on the tactics that work for your genre and your brand...

  • - Corral your story ideas into a single, easy-to-access spot inside your planner so you write them down while you're inspired without losing them later somewhere in piles of pretty notebooks...

  • - Applies coaching techniques to guide you through reviewing and planning weekly, monthly,  quarterly, and yearly...

  • - You will always feel like someone is holding your hand and sitting there with you, helping you define the next best steps to reach your goals...

  • - Allows you to define your core working hours and design a schedule that works for your life...

  • - Offers spaces to track habits, set your word count and editing goals, and note important tasks and dates.

  • - Provides dedicated space to define your daily top priority so you always know the one most important thing you need to do to move the needle forward each day...

  • - Includes a built-in system to review your progress, evolve your goals, and refine your vision as you move through the year.

What the planner looks like inside...

This video is from the 2022 Author's Planner, and the planner has gone through some core upgrades, but this still offers a reasonable demonstration of what you can expect from the 2024 edition.
