Who Am I?
I’m Courtney Kenney, author and book launch consultant. Like you, I’m on the author’s journey. My focus is to improve my craft, learn new marketing techniques, and sell more books as I grow my author business. I want to share what I’ve learned to help you become a more productive and prosperous author.
I spent sixteen years working in corporate America for tech companies such as Motorola and Workday. I’m a certified Project Management Professional (known as a PMP). I left corporate life behind and now run my own book launch consulting business.
I help authors launch bestselling books and grow their author platforms. My most recent project was launching the instant #1 New York Times bestseller, Hashimoto’s Protocol by Izabella Wentz.
Work With Me
I work one-on-one with authors who need help with writing, self-publishing and becoming more productive authors. Contact me if you’re interested in one-on-one coaching. Our initial 30-minute consultation is free.
Book Launch Consulting
I provide consulting services for authors and entrepreneurs who are launching a book and want help with developing a launch strategy or need project management consulting. My most recent project resulted in my client becoming an INSTANT #1 New York Times bestseller!
I’m also available for speaking engagements or interviews about writing, self-publishing, project management, and entrepreneurship. Please contact me if there’s some way 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, One Note, Evernote, Habitica.
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 am quite a sci-fi nerd as you can see from the pic with my storm trooper buddy. Growing up, I loved watching Star Trek and enjoy attending comic book/sci-fi conventions. You’ll often find me reading favorite authors such as Stephen King, Hugh Howey, Octavia Butler, and George RR Martin (if his next book ever comes out:-)
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, and Greece. I’ll be adding Belize to my list in 2017!
My non-fiction books help authors and entrepreneurs who are seeking to live creative lives.
