Hear how over a hundred agents rejected Lainey's book, saying they didn't think they could sell a novel about women in the workplace putting aside their conflicts and coming together to support and nurture each other. Lainey's answer to writers who ask her how to get people to review their books will surprise (and probably delight) you. Her innovative marketing ideas about leveraging the power of the writing community should be required listening for every debut author.
Lainey is an author of women's fiction and a recovering tech industry executive. Her award-winning novel, The Exit Strategy, a #1 Amazon Best Seller, was inspired by a decade of being the only woman in the corporate boardroom. It's been called a "rallying call for women to believe in themselves and join together" and tells the story of a Silicon Valley investor who first meets her husband's mistress across the negotiating table.
Originally from Scotland, Lainey has a soft spot for kilts, good
malt whisky, and anything equine. She’s a digital nomad--meaning
she picks locations around the world to live (and write) for months
at a time--Lainey is an avid instagrammer and loves to share her
travel tips and insights with readers. She believes community
makes the author's life worthwhile and is on a mission to
obliterate the term aspiring writer.
