Jacqui is not afraid of marketing her work.
So many writers and artists shy away from ‘selling’. It’s reasonable to want to focus on your creative skills, yet especially in the 21st century, no book, art or photographs are going to make a difference to anyone if they’re stuffed away in your filing cabinet or doc folders. Blogging, social media and understanding the market for your work are essential activities, whether you want to self publish or find a traditional publisher. There’s so much more to becoming a published author than just getting your butt in the seat. With her blogs and book sales she reaches thousands of people and has created a good income from her efforts, discipline and creativity.
Jacqui loves to write and research.

She has sculpted her talents into blogs over the last 5 years or so,while continuing to update her tech books, and write her fiction. This blog focuses on sharing tips and resources for writers ready to take their craft more seriously. Part of writing well is continuing to improve your skills, and you’ll find plenty of quality content she has curated and created to help beginning or more advanced writers get on the right track.
