About

draejune2016_smallHeya! Welcome to the improved Draebox.com! I’m Drae, a YA fantasy author and author success mentor. I’m here to help fiction writers become serious authors. This is an adventure I started without meaning to in 2006, when I began exploring the possibilities in book marketing and how to be, “good enough,” for an agent.

Back then in my teens, I was hopeful, but I wasn’t going to leave becoming an author to chance. I researched, observed and picked apart what successful authors (and publishers) were doing, then started to run my own experiments. A decade later, I’ve had fan mail and my debut YA fantasy book has done really well; it reached 10,038 sold and freely downloaded copies in ten months and eleven days since its release. It’s even been second and third in its Amazon categories on more than one occasion.

 

I want this for you too. In fact, I want you to do it better and faster than me.

 

So let’s try it! Nothing bad will happen from trying something different.

 

The articles you find with Google all say the same, and any paid training often expect you to already have certain things in place (like a lot of Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin connections). What helped me was the research, analysis of others and the experiments I continue to run.

Let me share this with you.
