How Doing #NaNoWriMo is Actually Reducing My Stress

I hemmed and hawed about whether to participate in National Novel Writing Month this year. The idea of this challenge--writing a 50,000 word novel in a month--has always appealed to my overachiever side, but I’ve never pulled the trigger,…

Does this happen to you? You’re doing something new, pursuing a new goal or change and it feels like NOTHING is working. Here are some ways this has shown up for me: I pitching or submitting writing all over, but all I hear are crickets…
How branding helps writers and creatives

Why Branding is So Important for Writers and Creatives

One of the most common questions I get from writers and creatives is, "how can branding help me?" There are so many ways, but for brevity's sake let's just look at these few. But first, remember that great personal branding is all about knowing…

Overwhelmed with the idea of promoting yourself?

I get it. What if I told you that you could connect with more readers, build a following, and make more money–all without becoming a sellout, or spending your life shouting into the void of social media?

My online course: Authentically Awesome Personal Branding for Writers is now enrolling!

Does this sound like you?:

  • Not sure where your creativity, passions, & career should intersect?
  • Often frustrated that people aren’t “getting” what you’re trying to do?
  • Overwhelmed by where, when, & how best to post on social media?
  • You write different genres, but aren’t sure how to brand it all?

You are not alone. Join me for my online branding course and I’ll show you how to break through the bullshit and confusion and create an authentic personal brand based on your own unique strengths.

  • Writer

    I write things to pull (not push) people into thinking differently, often about societal norms, traditionally accepted views of socioeconomic status, ethics, morality, religion, gender, and identity. Sometimes I’m even funny. I’m a grad of UCLA Extension Writers’ Program and was a 2014/15 scholar.

  • Designer

    Making the world more beautiful, one project at a time. That’s the plan. I’m an experienced graphic and web designer, specializing in converting complex ideas into designs that communicate, enrich, and invoke action.

    I was named a 2011 Top Ten Designer by CreativePublic.

    Need to kick things into gear and do something that actually works (for your career, your product, your biz)? That’s what I do. You bring your best to the table and I’ll help bring the people who will eat it up. I’ve been doing this for over fifteen years and I’ve worked with a spectrum of clients from multi-platinum recording artists to local entrepreneurs, weaving their raw materials into brand gold.

    Here’s a little bit more about that.

“I’ve had the good luck to work closely with Andrea at Lucky19 as a contractor. She is a leader of the best kind: an addictive, loveable personality and a serious, tactful mind, she imbues trust and confidence in all her clients and partners. Not only that, but she’s a great marketer, too, with an alchemistic ability to create brands or ideas that are pure gold. Highly recommended.”

“Unfortunately, Andrea is missing one thing… a cape.

She is super-creative, super-personable, super-talented, super-knowledgeable, super-business, super-super. When Andrea jumps on a project you don’t just get standard designs or standard ideas, you get super-designs and super-ideas. Will someone please sew her a cape.”

“Andrea’s energy and passion for what she does could light up a planet. She is an excellent designer and she gets branding. A designer that gets branding is a must in today’s branding arena. I love her dedication to embracing and continually learning for the benefit of her clients and of course her website rocks which is proof that she knows her stuff!”

“Wow…. this is why working with a professional is worth the cost. I almost wept – you really [get] what I’m trying to do…”

Andrea came through for us with flying colors! She was recommended as someone who could produce great design and do it quickly, and that is exactly what she did. We came to her with a ridiculous deadline to create a website for a client and she handled the entire project with grace, humor, utter professionalism and above all, great design. And it was delivered on time. I definitely recommend Andrea and plan to work with her again at the next opportunity.”
