Who Am I?

I’m Courtney Kenney, author, project manager, and book launch strategist. I coach authors and help them build book launch strategies.

After spending 16 years as a project manager for tech companies Motorola & Workday, I run my own author & consulting business.

I help authors launch bestselling books and grow their author platforms. In 2017, I managed the launch of the instant #1 New York Times bestseller, Hashimoto’s Protocol by Izabella Wentz.

Since then, I’ve helped multiple authors become WSJ, USA Today, and Amazon bestselling authors.

Every book launch is different. That’s why I start with goals and strategy. You can accomplish a lot with a plan, but knowing your destination is crucial.

Some of my highlights

Coffee, my morning routine (writing at least 1 to 2 hours), and meditation.

I won’t leave the house without my iPhone and a notebook in case an idea strikes.

My favorite productivity tools: Google docs/sheets, Evernote, Asana, and Trello.

I spent 16 years working in corporate America for tech companies, Motorola and Workday. A certified Project Management Professional (known as a PMP), I started my author business in 2015.

I’ve written 11+ books (including pen names). I love the author life, and my blog features my lessons learned about mindset, productivity, and living a creative life.

I love all things sci-fi and write dystopian sci-fi under a pen name.

Chicago is home these days, and I enjoy spending time out and about in the city with my husband and friends. Travel is one of my favorite ways to spend time. I’ve been fortunate to have lived in Australia and have traveled to many countries including Canada, Mexico, UK, Germany, Poland, Singapore, China, Indonesia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Greece, and Belize.
