What the listeners are saying…
Welcome to The Authorpreneur Podcast™️
The Authorpreneur Podcast™️ is hosted by Indie Author, Amelia D. Hay. The show acts as a virtual writing and business coach for fiction writers. Every Thursday, Amelia will teach you how to develop a story idea, create compelling characters and outline your novel. In each season of the podcast, you will learn how to write your first draft, revise your story, self-publish, establish your author platform, and reach readers. Season one of the podcast is on Plot and Story Structure, season two documents my writing adventure during 2020, and season three is about how to outline and the pre-writing phase.
