If you want to become a successful published author, then this page will probably be extremely interesting to you because you’re about to find out the proven, simple formula for writing a book that sells, used by best-selling authors like Pat Flynn. I know where you’re at. For years I dreamt about writing a book. I thought about it many times and even kept a journal with book titles, ideas and the beginnings of several books.
But I never actually finished anything.
Even though I had been a teacher most of my adult life, I struggled to know what the steps were to write a book. Honestly, I felt a little embarrassed by the whole situation.
Finally, in 2007 I decided to publish my first book. It was exciting; I edited the book, prepared the manuscript, created a cover and even published it and tried to sell it on Amazon, but no one really bought the book, not even my mother. I had no reviews and only sold a handful of copies.
I had finally written a book and yet there were still missing pieces.
I discovered the hard way that the unprofessional cover of my book totally sabotaged any chance it may have had of being successful!
On top of that, if anyone had bought it they probably would have left a bad review because I didn’t hire an editor and just figured I could do it myself. (Bad idea)
I didn’t fully understand how print on-demand services such as CreateSpace worked and how to sell my book on Amazon, I learned the hard way that putting a book in Kindle required special formatting.
Since those early days, I read dozens of books about writing and publishing. I took several online courses to learn the secrets and the tricks of the self-publishing world.
I had always assumed writing a good book would take a long time, but once I discovered how to do it the right way, it all clicked into place at lightning speed. In fact, I wrote the first draft of the book in just 30 days.
So, I created the Authors Writing Academy to help people not only to write the book that they have always wanted to write but to become a respected, published author.
In my experience working with dozens of authors in many different niches I’ve learned a few things. First, if you want to write a book you must understand why.
Many people with good intentions and desires never finish writing a book because when it gets tough they give up. Having a strong why gives you the incentive and motivation to finish the entire book publishing process.
For me, I saw the power of opportunities to connect to mentors and start making a great living doing something I was passionate about. I saw my book as a bridge between the life I had, and the life I wanted.
You probably also know that writing a book can be a challenging process. A lot of people feel totally alone. They wrestle with self-doubt and fear. Yes, writing can be a horribly painful and difficult process if you attempt to do it in isolation. But it doesn’t have to be when you are a part of a community.
(social scientists call this the “unity principle”)
This power of community can give you the confidence you need to push forward and finish your book. That’s what the Authors Writing Academy provides.
WE will teach you how to find a winning idea, create a writing plan for your book, and help you be a published author.

“Before I met Azul, I was a Business and Content Strategist who was trying to grow a business and be a parent at the same time. I had direction, but no true driving force. Azul helped me unlock my purpose. I always knew I wanted to write a book, and when I sat down with Azul he helped me figure out what I was meant to write, what I was meant to put out into the world. His mix of support, drive, and experience has helped me not only stay motivated and actually write, but also to create more community in my life. My journey with Azul has been so meaningful, he has helped me so much not only to write, but to find my path, and I am so grateful to have found him. He has helped me create something that truly represents a part of me and helped me share it with the world.”

Musician turned author — Break into the Scene
“For years I thought about writing a book, but did nothing more than just think about it. In six months, Azul helped me perfect the story I wanted to tell, write the manuscript, and publish the entire book. My book launched at #1 in three Amazon categories, beating out a NYT-bestseller, and I couldn’t have done it without Azul!”
Hi, I’m Azul! I’m a best-selling author and I have helped dozens of authors just like you make their books a reality. I have also coached seasoned writers like Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income and Dana Malstaff of BossMom.com to find their book idea and execute it well.
I dreamt about writing a book for many years and even helped many students write theirs through teaching, but that dream simply stayed just that, a dream. I had all my ideas, bought every book on how to write a book, but I was stuck. I made a public decision to write a book and I made a promise to myself that I would take my book to the 1Day Business Breakthrough with Pat Flynn and Chris Ducker. So I did. And I wrote it in 30 days.
Through those thirty days, I realized that I could do it. And if I can do it, so can you. One person at a time, I started helping people find their vision for their book, distill it and take actionable steps to make it happen. Writing your book doesn’t have to be lonely, you can say the things you really want to say and I can help. I believe that you can do this. I believe that you can publish your book. In fact, you must.

“When my manuscript was near completion, I made the wise decision to employ the services and request the guidance of Azul Terronez. My only regret is that I didn’t seek his insightful, wonderful advice sooner! Every time I consulted with Azul, I was reminded of his natural sense of wisdom, reflective, inquiry-based thinking, and balanced perspective. Beyond professional editing, story craft, and marketing advice, Azul listened acutely, read deeply into meaning, and asked me all the right questions to get the most out of the author in me. He clearly sees the importance of the big picture as well as the crucial details in writing. To me, Azul is a true feedback guru, a master of craft — more than a writing coach — a sage and counselor.”
