"Can I really Call Myself an Author?" with Kendra E. Ardnek

Hello! I have a pep-talk video here for any self-published authors out there who are struggling with the guilt that they cheated. Enjoy!

Because, frankly, the only bad authors, in my opinion, are authors who stop growing.


  1. I really needed to hear that...having massive moments of self doubt. M.S off at proofreader/editor. Very nerve racking. I've been waiting 20 years for my 'season'to arrive so I don't want to submit something below par. Thank you

  2. Good reminder--especially about becoming a better author. Just because one's first (or third...or fifth...) book wasn't perfect (or even great), it doesn't mean one can't eventually improve with practice, time, and patience.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thanks for this. Interestingly, I haven't doubted that I'm an author. I think having a published book has been a goal of mine for so long that it's how I've defined "author" - so of course I'm an author by that definition. Could be my personality style coming out too. But I think a big part of it is that I tend to call myself according to my idealism and not by reality: i.e. I'm abiding in Christ (even if I stumble or don't feel like I am), I'm an editor (regardless of whether people hire me), I am complete in Christ (even if today is a total mess), and so forth. Speaking the truth regardless of whether or not I feel it is a step towards having it become real in my life.

  4. If you've written a story, you're an author ;). Thanks for sharing this with all of us, Kendra!
