Your 5-Figure Author Challenge Host

I'm Alinka Rutkowska and I'm excited to be your host. 

Now that I've sold over 100,000 copies of my books, won numerous awards and made invaluable connections in the publishing industry I might look like one of those overnight success phenomena to you.

But it wasn't always this way...

It all started with a dream... with a dream to write and publish my very first book. I still remember how far away that dream seemed but I was determined to make it come true. And it did.

But I got there through sweat and tears and I know that I would have gotten there so much faster if I had been surrounded by the incredible people who I gathered together for this challenge.

Each expert will share their secrets to their publishing success. Each author will give you a piece of the puzzle and by the end of the challenge you will have a beautiful roadmap to a successful author career.

I feel honored to be able to have these conversations and share them with you.

How I wish I had access to such wisdom when I was just getting started!
