For Ingrid’s Readers


When Ingrid sent me the interview questions, I wanted to give you all a gift.

The answer was a no-brainer. A lot of the questions Ingrid asked were specific to being a serious author, so I have two gifts for you!


Ask for Help – 20 Minute Chat

For those interested in taking a step closer to their success and getting an actionable step to do it, I invite you to grab a free twenty minute chat with me. You’ll need a microphone, and be prepared to use Skype. You can also use this time just to get to know me if you’d prefer to make a friend instead of brain picking. Please note I’m not taking on new clients at the moment, but if you’re really determined to work with me and jump on Skype with me, I’ll send you a questionnaire to get you in the queue to work together in January 2017.

Writers’ Club Invitation

When I first started my transition from writer to published author, I was completely by myself. It was 2006, and I’d just headed to the nearby red postbox and posted my submission to an agent in London. I was hopeful and excited – my manuscript would be in the hands of someone who knew good from bad and looked at stories on a daily basis.

I never heard back from that agent.

In hindsight, sending out the second revision of my manuscript was a bad idea, and so was adding, “I’m seventeen years old, but please don’t hold that against me,” in my covering letter to the agent.

But that’s OK, because that was the year I started my change from writer to published author. A decade later, and the research, analysis and experiments I’ve done are all waiting to be shared with writers like you. Don’t be on your own as you work your way through the reams of information or the mess-ups that are available to us, whether we plan to be traditionally published, independently published or a hybrid author. It’s time to stop struggling to find time to write and stop running around like a headless chicken with your marketing, trying anything and everything in the hope it sticks like spaghetti on a wall.

Let’s connect!

I provide Writers’ Club, an exclusive service for the writer that’s serious about their future success. Every email is packed with a helpful resource you can follow the steps of, links to handy articles and occasionally a suggestion for us to work together. My favourite is the fun free community challenges, like the #keepgoingwithdrae Challenge!

You won’t be alone, you don’t have to fear your writing, and you definitely don’t have to struggle to find time to have fun writing!

Join Writers’ Club and I’ll send you one of my favourite guides. It’s a free list of 9 fantastic tools every serious author should have in their arsenal.

I wanted to join a community of writers that is all year round, unlike NaNoWriMo, and whilst I am getting involved with the Twitter writer community, the keep going challenges added more for me to follow. The challenges are also what I need at the moment. A push to get words down, especially as life is going to get very busy in the next few months. [The challenges] kept me motivated and made me write even a few words to keep pushing on. Not sure that would have happened otherwise. It was also nice to feel I was apart of a group of writers who were cheering each other on. – Samantha, a member of Writers’ Club.
