Judith Briles, aka The Book Shepherd® has shepherded more than 1,000 authors and created 500 best-sellers and award-winning books. She is knowledgeable, entertaining and love to have fun with my audience while delivering high content. She has personally authored 36 books that have been translated to 16 languages; sold a combined 1,000,000 copies; and generated in excess of $5,000,000 in revenues from combined book sales and speaking fees. As a global advocate for authors, she knows publishing inside and out from both the traditional and independent/self sides and hosts the AuthorU-Your Guide to Book Publishing podcast that generates over 100,000 downloads a month. Judith speaks at multiple writers and publishing conferences every year.

Judith knows publishing and she gets the challenges that authors go through in creating and publishing their books. Known as The Book Shepherd to many, she’s personally guided thousands of publishing clients throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Monaco and New Zealand.  If you were to describe her, she would say, “I’m a blunt, butt-kicking, benevolent book coach, book and book doctor and book publisher.” Each Summer, she hosts Judith Briles Book Publishing Unplugged, a 3-day intensive “happening” for authors who want to be successful through practical authoring and publishing guidance; in late Summer, the AuthorYOU Extravaganza brings 20 publishing and marketing pros under one roof; and in the Spring and Fall, Judith Briles Speaking Unplugged, a 2-day intensive how-to craft a speech with laser coaching throughout.
