Are you writing a book and wondering what comes next?

I'm Melissa Frey. When I started writing my first book, I was a little lost. I didn't know anything about writing, editing, publishing, or marketing my book. I had to learn things the hard way.

That's why I created this site — so that indie authors like you don't have to do all the research themselves. So you can learn from my mistakes and skip the steep learning curve you'd have if you did it all yourself.

I've condensed my research and everything I've learned about the author life into simple and easy-to-follow courses, trainings, printables, and other resources to help you with every aspect of the writing, editing, and publishing process. That way, you can benefit from all the legwork I've already done!

And I'm always here to help! I'd love to know what topics you'd love to learn more about so I can create more content that will help you. Don't hesitate to reach out with any suggestions or feedback on the resources I already have.

I'm so glad you're here. Let's get learning!
