7 Questions With Author Rachel Hall
Rachel Hall has taken 2019 to go on a transitional journey in becoming a better version of herself. She has written her first self-help book titled, “Unlock the Power of Self-Development” and hopes it reaches other people who are looking to improve their lives as well. Before becoming an author, Rachel spent time working different jobs from factory to office work.
Her knowledge about self-development has come from past experiences, reading books, and listening to inspirational people. It wasn’t until she noticed that she spent more time focusing on making ends meet that she had almost no energy for the people and the interests in her life.
Rachel is currently pursuing the goals that she set and is taking each day to improve. In her spare time she is engaging on social media, working out, learning new things, and reading. Her desire to succeed has opened new doors of opportunities and a wealth of information. She wants to teach other people how to better themselves and live life more abundantly.

How does a day in your author life look?
Each day is different. In general, I find myself constantly checking online publishing platforms such as Amazon and Ingram to see if I have any sales for the day. I read other books, prepare for my next book, and find creative ways to market my current book. I enjoy getting feedback about my work and networking with other authors.
What’s your definition of the first draft?
The first draft starts when you think you’re ready to publish you’re work. Many writers will go on to have five drafts after that. After I hired an editor and two or three beta readers later, I found myself adding and taking out information from my first few drafts. For me, the first draft was a great starting point in the process of publishing my book.
Authors vs. Social Media. How do you approach the tools you have at your disposal?
You just have to be creative with pictures, words, and hashtags. I use Instagram and Facebook to promote Unlock the Power of Self-development and include hashtags related to the content in my book. More people were able to discover my book this way.
What’s the best advice/feedback on writing you’ve ever received?
Just write. You have to start somewhere.
What’s the best way for authors to approach self-promotion?
The best way for authors to approach self-promotion is by hiring people who are professionals at promoting. My go-to-place is Fiverr. I have found people who promote and market books at an affordable price. Another good way to promote is by showcasing your work on social media and websites that are similar to your genre.
Do you have any tips for authors who are looking into getting more reviews for their novels?
I found it helpful to post in message boards with topics discussed by people who are willing to review books.
What are the 5 immediate tasks you hope to accomplish in the near future?
The 5 immediate tasks I hope to accomplish in the near future:
-Inspire and motivate people in self-improvement.
-Get more reviews.
-See my book in library and bookstores.
– Meet and network with other authors, readers, and writers.
-Write and publish my next book.
Thank you, and if I had any advice to give it would be to believe in yourself and work towards your goals.
