Nina Amir inspires people to combine their purpose and passion so they achieve more inspired results. She motivates both writers and non-writers to create publishable and published products, careers as authors and to achieve their goals and fulfill their purpose.
The author of How to Blog a Book, Write, Publish and Promote Your Work One Post at a Time (Writer’s Digest Books), Nina has also self-published 10 short books, including the How to Evaluate Your Book for Success and 10 Days and 10 Ways to Your Best Self. A sought after nonfiction developmental editor, proposal and platform consultant, book and author coach, and blog-to-book coach, Nina’s clients’ books have sold upwards of 230,000 copies and landed deals with top publishers. The founder of Write Nonfiction in November, she writes four blogs, including Write Nonfiction NOW!, How to Blog a Book and As the Spirit Moves Me, and appears regularly on the Dresser After Dark radio show.
Nina has edited or written for more than 45 publications producing hundreds of articles, had her work published in five anthologies, and has two pieces scheduled in upcoming books. As an editor, Amir also has a proven track record. One of her clients’ books (Enlightened Leadership) was self-published and then purchased and re-released verbatim by Simon & Schuster (Fireside); the book has sold more than 230,000 to date. Another (Radical Forgiveness) won the 1998 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Award (Inspirational category), went on to sell more than 115,000 copies, and recently was purchased by Sounds True. Her clients’ proposals regularly secure them agency representation as well.
Nina began working on her author platform in 2001; she first heard the term when an agent turned her down because she didn’t have one. She began slowly building one as a speaker and blogger, later adding in just about every social network possible. She also uses ezine article marketing and traditional media to help promote and brand herself.
Nina has built a business around her books with speaking, coaching and consulting, a variety of services, short books, teleseminars and teleclasses, online courses, and products. Since she sees herself as an “Everywoman” whose struggles and successes are not unlike anyone else’s, Nina writes, speaks and teaches from a place of knowing that what has worked for her will at least provide others with a starting place from which to find what works best for them—including building a platform and expert status.
