Testimonials from members of the Nonfiction Authors Association“I just wanted to tell you how much I value all that you are doing with NFAA. It is one of the best investments in a membership I have ever made. I have been listening to your webinars and taking copious notes during them. One of my favorites was Revenue Stream for Authors. I am using it as a checklist for the many ways I can promote my book. It helps keep me focused. Being a first-time author was daunting enough. I didn’t realize how much time and effort it takes to promote a self-published book. NFAA has given me the tools for structuring that process. I would recommend NFAA to both the novice and seasoned author.
– David Petrovay, PhD, author of Life Between Jobs: Out of Work…Not Out of WORTH

For the nonfiction writer, joining NFAA is a must do, especially if you are self-publishing. I can’t imagine trying to do this without the resources it offers. I have just upped my membership to VIP because NFAA is that important to my work. Sign up at whatever level of the tribe that you can afford, and do it today!”
– Marcia Ledford

The Nonfiction Authors Association helped me make my Amazon Best Seller a reality! NFAA had all of the pieces to the puzzle and with Stephanie’s help and use of NFAA resources my book came to life. This is one stop-shopping for non-fiction writers!”
– Rich Turrin, author of Innovation Lab Excellence, RichTurrin.com

As a new author, I can’t say enough good things about the wealth of information I’ve received from NFAA. The worksheets and information on specific topics is simply excellent! Thank you so much for the untold hours of research you’ve spared me as well as helping me know what I didn’t know I needed to know!”
– Marcia Grace “Calm, Creative, Joyful: Lessons in Transforming Your Life,” www.marciagrace.com

“I joined the Nonfiction Authors Assoc. about six months ago and I can’t say enough about how helpful all the info is that I receive weekly on everything I need to know as an author. I have just finished a second book and the info on finding agents, on self-publishing, and other valuable tips is extremely helpful.”
– Sandra CH Smith, Author of A Cook’s Tour of Epicuria — One Woman’s Adventures

“I’m getting ready for a presentation tomorrow and needed to print some content. I emailed 4 files to this OfficeMax/Office Depot with instructions for 30 sets. They had everything boxed up when I arrived, and the cashier rang up my order: $96.83 (including a Payday candy bar—a reward for finishing ahead of deadline). I gave her my NFAA discount card and told her that my total was about to come down. She entered the discount code and was so shocked by the new total that she double-checked with the supervisor. My final total: $35.53…and there was even a discount on my Payday bar! That was a savings of over $60—unbelievable!
– Tom McCourt

Member FeedbackMore Member Feedback

I absolutely love all the resources the association offers–the downloads, the podcast recordings and the amazing discounts. Though I’ve been an author for many years now, I still find all kinds of new tips and ideas through NFAA. It’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made in my author career!
– Donna Hartley, Author of the Fire Up Your Life series, DonnaHartley.com

“After an earlier career as a comedy writer (I wrote for “the Monkees” and “Love American Style”) I have become excited about non fiction writing on some new breakthroughs I’ve discovered in my second career of Conflict Resolution. I am grateful to NFAA for the tremendous support and guidance I have received in making this transition. NFAA is a great organization!
– David Evans, www.HelpUshealAmerica.com

“I consider it a privilege to be a member of the Nonfiction Authors Association. The resources that are available to new and established authors are outstanding. The Nonfiction Writers Conference is always jam packed with great sessions and this year I was invited by one of the panel agents to submit a book proposal during Pitch the Literary Agents! As an up and coming author I find great value in the monthly teleseminars as well. I would encourage anyone who desires to become an established nonfiction author to join the Nonfiction Authors Association–you’ll be glad you did!
– Akua Carmichael, Author of My Lifeprint

NFAA helped me launch my first book into the world successfully. The templates and information on the web site are things I could not find anywhere else. I cannot wait to attend my first conference.”
– Alison Buehler, Author of Rethinking Women’s Health
