Who Am I?

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

I spent 16 years as a project manager for tech companies Motorola & Workday. Now 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.

Work With Me

I work one-on-one with authors who need help with writing, self-publishing, and/or becoming more productive. Contact me if you’re interested in coaching. My initial 30-minute consultation is free.

Book Launch Consulting
I provide consulting services for authors/entrepreneurs who are launching a book and want help with developing a launch strategy or need project management consulting. My client launches get results! I’ve helped authors reach NYT, WSJ, USA Today, Washington Post, and Amazon bestselling author status.

Productivity Coaching
Sometimes you just need a little help getting organized! If you’re a creative type who loves to start new projects but has trouble finishing, let’s chat. I coach authors/entrepreneurs who need help staying accountable to goals. I’m also available for coaching/consulting if you’re taking on a new project that needs project management expertise. For example, I led project management for the Dirty Genes Summit, that included content from over 50 health & wellness experts and reached thousands of people.

I’m also available for speaking engagements or interviews about writing, self-publishing, project management, and entrepreneurship. Please contact me and let’s chat about how we can work together.

Some of my highlights

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

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

My favorite productivity tools: Google Drive, Evernote, and Trello.

I spent 16 years working in corporate America for tech companies: Motorola and Workday. I’m a certified Project Management Professional (known as a PMP). I was fortunate to have traveled to over a dozen countries and lived abroad in Australia for a year.

I rediscovered my love of writing in 2015 and have spent time since then writing books and blogging. I’ve gotten past negative self-talk and share my lessons learned about mindset, productivity, and living a creative life.

I enjoy sci-fi books, movies, and conventions. You’ll often find me reading favorite authors such as Stephen King, Hugh Howey, Octavia Butler, and George RR Martin.

I live in Chicago and 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.
