Jennifer Kay Wilson, author of the New World trilogy joins me today. In this episode we talk about dealing with dyslexia, learning to love books, Harry Potter, her love of telling stories, writing her first book, her path to publishing, grass roots marketing, meeting book influencers online, having her series picked up by a publisher, relaunching her series, cover art, and so much more.
Jennifer Wilson is the author of the #1 Amazon Bestselling New World Series. She is a little bit of an adventurer, majority part dreamer, with a touch of feminist and a whole lot of nerd sprinkled on top.
As a child Jennifer loved getting lost in the stories of others, but struggled greatly with reading. A notoriously slow reader who stumbled with words and spelling, Jennifer shied away from books, leaning heavily on musical theater and movies to get her inspirational fix.
It was not until in her mid-teens, when a persistent friend convinced her to read the Harry Potter series, that Jennifer found her love for the written word. J.K. Rowling’s books opened doors not only to the fascinating world of a young wizard, but to a life filled with a multitude of literary friends and fantastical worlds. Once a timid reader, Jennifer now devours books and loves getting lost in a new series.
When Jennifer is not writing, she is enjoying life in Colorado, rock climbing, camping, exploring new foods, playing with her golden retriever, Duke, and sharing her life with her wonderfully supportive husband.
