Author Adventure :: We’re Going Places

Here’s your chance to join a community that will breathe life into your creative writing dreams, point you in the right direction, and provide mentorship & friendship for your journey!

What if, in the next chapter of your author adventure, you …

  •  finally discovered a roadmap that could lead you to your desired “destination” in publishing?
  • learned the secrets to help you catch the attention of a literary agent or publisher?
  • were surrounded by a group of writers who could encourage your dreams, serve as critique partners & beta readers, and help you grow your author platform?
  • could receive training & mentorship from authors and publishing professionals who have gone before you?

There’s no doubt that the author journey can be lonely & overwhelming at times.

Whether you are pursuing traditional publishing or self-publishing, let’s face it: we can’t navigate this journey alone … especially if we hope to write books that can make a difference in God’s kingdom.

This is why we are thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of the:

AUTHOR ADVENTURE! 

We developed this program after training & mentoring fiction writers over the past decade and hearing the same desires and struggles repeated among young aspiring authors.

By joining the AUTHOR ADVENTURE, you don’t need to repeat the same mistakes as authors who have gone before you. 

No longer will you need to struggle in figuring out how this whole publishing process works–or why you may only hear crickets after releasing a new book. 

We have created a mentorship program that bundles together the education we have received from over a decade of reading writing craft books, taking workshops, mentoring writers, and attending (and teaching at) writing conferences.

That way, you will save both time, money, & years of trial-and-error by following tried-and-true methods on how to …

  • Write a quality fiction manuscript that sells 
  • Deliver an emotionally gripping storyline that resonates with readers
  • Build a platform geared toward your target readership
  • Create your author brand and reflect that brand through all avenues
  • Effectively promote your book 
  • Build a sustainable long-term author career 
  • And so much more!

“[Victoria and Livy] both really care about their mission to bring godly stories into the world, and I could tell they genuinely love to help and support other writers on their journeys, too! Victoria and Livy are experienced and talented authors with a wealth of information … I learned so much in just a short hour with Victoria and Livy, and I came away with a feeling of having real friends and a true team in my corner, cheering me on and rooting for me every step of the way on my author journey!”
JENNIE – Attendee of Glory Writers Self-Publishing Webinar

“Tessa Emily Hall is a brilliant writer, editor, and mentor. She has not only taught me how to prepare my work for traditional publication but has provided continuous support, advice, and feedback. Excellent writers need excellent mentors—Tessa Emily Hall is one of the best accessible resources in today’s market and will help you transform your manuscript into a sellable product.”
CAROLINE GEORGE, multi-published author with Harper Collins Christian Publishing – Former mentee of Tessa Emily Hall

“Encouraging and empowering. Tessa shares readily from vast experience in the worlds of publishing and story, and I’ve strengthened as a writer thanks to what she passes down. I can only speak from my own time learning from her, but I’ve seen her as fantastically suited to the aging art of teaching. Some time down the road, I’d be honored to be in a place where I could do as much.”
BRYAN SANDOW, teen writer, former mentee of Tessa Emily Hall

Do I need to have an entire book written to benefit from these lessons?

Certainly not! The modules will take you through the entire process of book creation.

Will I be required to share my writing?

This will not be a requirement for community members. However, we certainly advise that members take full advantage of the benefits of having a critique partner and receiving feedback from coaches.

We bundled all this together for you to access in one spot. That way, you can save time, money, and–yes–save yourself from the stress that comes along with those common trial-and-error mistakes. 😉 

Will this program help me learn how to build a living as an author? 

We include lessons on how to build a sustainable writing career. By implementing the strategies, you will be on your way toward living out your author dream.
