About AK Turner

About Me

I complete an average of two books per year, while also managing to travel for four months of every year as a part-time digital nomad. My husband and I have taken our two young daughters to Australia, Alaska, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, Scotland, Ireland, and Thailand.

My books have been self-published, hybrid published, and traditionally published, giving me keen insight into various publishing tracks. In addition to multiple listings on the New York Times, my works have received Independent Publishing Awards (IPPYs), Foreword Indies Awards, a Publishers Weekly starred review, an Independent Press Award, and inclusion in BookLife’s Top 5 Indie Books of the Year.

There’s no magic involved in what I’ve accomplished.

It’s about executing a plan.

With my guidance, you will acquire the skills necessary to outline, schedule, and complete your first draft. We’ll work through the editing process together, discuss various paths to publication, and identify the course of action best suited to you and your book.
