Updated: Jan 9

Tis the Season to Write a Book blog series finale is here. If you're ready to make 2022 a year of success as an author this blog post is for you. Today is day 24 of 24 here are 7 success characteristics, let's dive right in.


#1 Commitment


If you want to make an impact and income the first thing you have to do is commit to being successful and accomplishing your dream.


#2 Clarity


There is no time for guessing or second-guessing in 2022. Have a clear plan of action to follow, track your progress, and stay the course.

#3 Conviction


Keep your vision in front of you and know why your book is needed in the world.

#4 Confidence


God has called you to be the person to deliver your book, with your unique voice. Your experiences and perspective will make you a success. You are the best woman for the job and be confident that God has called you in this season in 2022 to birth your book.


#5 Consistency


I know we hear this word a lot but it's true, like in real estate they have this saying location, location, location. Well, when it comes to being a successful author in 2022 consistency, consistency, and consistency.

#6 Courage


Yes, courage leads to success but it's also biblical. Even with unexpected things happening outside of our control as Christians we are called to be courageous. Being an author takes courage because you will have to put yourself out there and let your book shine brightly.


#7 Community


You have to be willing to be a part of a village and not be an island. I'm not just talking about having supportive family members but a community of people who are also authors, writers, entrepreneurs who are doing what it is you want to do. Having mentors and experts to encourage you to be the best version of yourself.


These are the seven must-haves needed if you want to be successful as an author. I did an entire 4-Part Video Success Training where I dive deeper into each must-have to guide you in the New Year. Here is a sneak peek of part 1.



That's a wrap, tomorrow is Christmas so from my family to yours I wish you a Merry Christmas and may God richly bless you in the New Year. Also, I'm taking a week's Sabbatical to rest so the next blog series drops in January.
