Is there a secret to becoming a successful author?

Before I became an internationally bestselling author, I agonized over this question too. I never believed I’d be one of the ‘lucky ones.’ But now I’ve understood that luck is more than a wish. There is an algorithm to it.

Watch my video below and discover how to distinguish yourself from other wanna-be authors:
Over the next 8 weeks I’m going to share my unique framework for turning writers and wanna-be authors into authors.

The full 8 Week Author Awakening Adventure to help you transform your writing and your thinking consisting of 8 modules broken down into:

What will you learn?

The core principles of craft every aspiring author needs to master (you probably know them already: techniques for writing fascinating characters; interesting storytelling structure, plot, setting, theme, pace and so on…)

But, hang on, you can learn the craft in any writing course. This knowledge won’t distinguish you from the millions of other wanna-be authors out there who also know the craft.

There’s no ‘magic’ in the craft.

So where is the magic?


I’ve been on the hunt for it and now that I’ve mentored hundreds of writers and written and published ten books, (some of which have been international and #1 Amazon bestsellers), I’ve found it.

And I’m going to show you how to invite it into your writing (and your life).

What you need is an advantage.

That advantage is exactly what I will teach you here.

The Elements of the Advantage

  • 1

    I teach you to identify and master the strengths to counter the six biggest problems aspiring authors face.

    • Let’s take self doubt as an example and let me show you how it undermines your ability to even learn the craft of writing. • What value would you get from knowing the difference between plot and structure if you truly believed that you had nothing of value to say? • I’ll show you how to conquer self doubt first, and then teach you the craft through the strength of a counter-mindset, a mindset that sets you up for success rather than failure.

  • 2

    I will share self-mastery tools to help you move beyond your blocks that keep you stuck;

  • 3

    You will save time because this course will shear years of research, reading, workshops and failed attempts off your life;

  • 4

    You will be imbued with the confidence that flows from self-awareness and self-mastery. And there’s no match for it when it comes to distinguishing yourself as a writer in the crowded marketplace of wannabe-authors.

About Joanne

I’m an internationally bestselling author of nine books, inspirational speaker and writing mentor. I’ve had books published in just about every genre- fiction, non-fiction, self-help, memoir – by some of the top publishing houses in the world. My books have sold over 650 000 copies and have been translated in a range of languages. Two of my books have been #1 Amazon bestsellers, and at one point the German edition of Secret Mothers’ Business outsold Harry Potter- crazy, right?

Your StoryAt heart, I am a teacher. Each year I take a small group of aspiring authors on a writing retreat to Fiji, Bali or Tuscany.

In 2016 I launched my WINGS programme (words inspire, nourish and grow the spirit). I am currently working closely with 18 aspiring authors in my WINGS Author Liftoff programme to nurture them to publication.

My new book Your Story: how to write it so others will want to read it, will be published by Hay House in July 2017

Praise for Joanne

‘Your story can change someone’s life.’ Fedler’s message is a powerful reminder that ordinary stories – of growth, healing and transformation – are the medicine this world needs now, and that each human life has its place in the great unfolding narrative of our planet. A book that inspires hope and teaches each of us how to use our words to leave a legacy.’- Van Jones

‘Joanne is a natural, a true passionate leader and teacher of writing, addressing all the aspects that plague writers – from the newest to the most experienced, and with such genuine intention. She is the gift I needed on my path to achieve my dream! Having her as a mentor has changed my life!’ - Michele

‘Joanne genuinely wants to share what she has learned and see me succeed. She genuinely wants to see other people become published authors. I love her drive, her honesty, her openness and her care.. she is brave and strong. It makes me feel like I can be those things as well.’ - Kerry

‘Joanne’s gift lies in her ability to see the writer we have hidden from ourselves and to summon her out through powerful examples, highly original strategies and exercises… Joanne’s knowledge, her often startling insights, her generosity and her passion showed me to myself and, in facing that storm head on, I’ve made peace with my voice.’ - Georgia

‘A fire has been lit, a fire that will not settle. It will not die down. It will not go out. I cannot pretend it does not exist. And I thank you for helping it to stay alight in the face of the wind, and rain and life. I will be forever grateful.’ - Kylie

‘Someone should canonize this book. ‘The perfect combination of health advice and spirituality’ is still a pathetically inadequate description of this offering by Joanne Fedler, author of Secret Mothers’ Business. It is a golden nugget of autobiography, spiritual wisdom and health. Think Eat, Pray, Love but less self-centred. This book will appeal to women of all ages – and body-conscious young women should take it to heart. If Fedler’s wisdom doesn’t sell this book, her humour and charm will.’- Rebecca Butterworth, Australian Bookseller and Publisher

‘When I first met Joanne, I was unemployed and suffering burn-out. Writing was a self-indulgent hobby, nothing more. Her retreat changed everything. She introduced me to my inner-writer, someone who'd been buried under layers of doubt, and suddenly the impossible was made possible. I started seriously considering writing as a career. Importantly, she made me realize that writing is a craft. Talent is required, but with an amazing mentor any creative person can acquire the tools needed. I'm now able to live wherever I like, and I'm making a better income than I ever made in my corporate work. My life revolves around creative pursuits and friends, and I've never been happier. Best of all, I have the time and headspace to continue developing my craft. I credit Joanne with giving me the confidence to quit my job and pursue my dream of writing and editing full-time, and since meeting her four years ago, I've never looked back.’ - Cate
