Nina Amir is a seasoned journalist, nonfiction editor, and writing, book, blogging and author coach with 33+ years of experience in the publishing field as well as the founder of Write Nonfiction in November, a blog and writing challenge. She serves as the national Jewish Issue Examiner and the national Self-Improvement Examiner and writes four blogs regularly (www.writenonfictionnow.com, www.howtoblogabook.com, www.asthespiritmovesme.com, www.mysoncandance.com). She is the weekly writing and publishing expert on the popular Dresser After Dark (www.dresserafterdark.com) radio show hosted by Michael Ray Dresser. She has self-published nine short books and workbooks, including How to Evaluate Your Book for Success, and her first traditionally published book, How to Blog a Book Write, Publish and Promote Your Work One Post at a Time, will be released by Writer's Digest Books this April. As Your Inspiration-to-Creation Coach, she helps writer's combine their passion and purpose into inspired results--publishable and'published products.
Amir holds a BA in magazine journalism from Syracuse University with a concentration in psychology. She has edited or written for more than 45 local, national and international magazines, newspapers, e-zines, and newsletters on a full-time or freelance basis producing hundreds of articles. Her essays have been published in five anthologies.
She also has a proven track record as a book editor. One of Amir’s client’s books (Enlightened Leadership) was self-published and then purchased and re-released verbatim by Simon & Schuster (Fireside); it has sold over 230,000 copies. Another (Radical Forgiveness) won the 1998 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Award (Inspirational category), received a contract from William Morrow but remained self-published and went on to sell over 115,000 copies; recently Radical Forgiveness was purchased by Sounds True. Her clients' proposals regularly get them contracts with agents as well.
Amir teaches workshops, teleseminars and classes on how to get published. She also speaks to organizations, writing groups and at conferences on topics related to writing, getting published, and building platform. She works with individual aspiring authors not only on their manuscripts but how to get their books and other products written most efficiently and on staying inspired as they maneuver their way through the sometimes long and arduous path to becoming published.
In addition, Amir is an inspirational speaker, conscious creation coach, and the holiday and spirituality expert on Conversations with Mrs. Claus, a weekly podcast heard in more than 90 countries and downloaded by 110,000 listeners/month. Through her writing and speaking, Amir offers human potential, personal growth and practical spiritual tools pertinent to people of all faiths. She helps people live fully and manifest their desires -- whether those desires look like written products or something entirely different.
