One of our favorite things to do is meetup with our writers, coaches, collaborators, and partners when we have the chance. So when Jennie Nash and Laura Franzini (our managing editor) attended the Willamette Writers Conference - they were delighted to set up a meeting at a local Starbucks.
What's great about this particular meetup is that it represents so many levels of what we do at Author Accelerator. We have the founder, the managing editor, a book coach, a partner and our writers ALL in the same place. It's incredible to see the way that each "role" helps strengthen the Author Accelerator family.
Because so much of what we do is "virtual" and not as tangible as say, a physical class, it's often forgotten how much the writer is impacted by their relationship with their coach. Support and guidance is often underrated and overlooked - but it's within these meetups that we actually get to see the true impact we're having. Dare we say it's rather heart-melting. When we step back and really think about it - these are people whose lives we've changed and in return are changing the lives of the Author Accelerator Staff. That's why we believe so strongly in book coaching, support, and the mission we represent at Author Accelerator.
