Speakers Joining us for the 2019 PLANNING FOR SUCCESS Conference
NINC 2019 Speakers
Dave Chesson - Kindlepreneur
Dave Chesson is the guy behind Kindlepreneur.com, a website devoted to teaching authors about book marketing and the digital world. His works on keywords and sales optimization have been featured and promoted by Amazon itself.
Dave is also the creator of KDP Rocket, a software that helps authors see what's really going on in the book market, and thus pick better keywords and categories to help them sell more books. Having been a consultant for multiple publishing companies and NYT bestselling authors, he’s seen both sides of the writing world.
When he’s not running Kindlepreneur, he’s usually lightsaber dueling with little Jedi, and sipping tea with princesses.

Gwen Hernandez - Scrivener for Dummies
Jordyn White has published over a dozen books in two genres. She launched her third contemporary romance series with the novel Heart of Glass. She also writes epic fantasy adventure under a different pen name. Her debut fantasy novel, Gift of the Phoenix, has won several awards.
Before going full-time as an author, Jordyn worked many years as a freelance book editor and publishing consultant. She co-founded the Idaho Editor and Writers Association and still leads alongside her co-founders to facilitate the group’s mission to develop and nurture the professional growth of its members.
Her publishing house has a limited roster of authors—one—and published the award-winning, literary novel I Call Myself Coca Joe, by Arrow Keane in 2016. The final book of the Coca Joe trilogy, I Call Myself Warrior, will be followed by the author’s revealing memoir. (Jordyn’s publishing house is not open to submissions.)
Every year, Jordyn teaches at several writers events, both big and small, and is known for her engaging, insightful presentations. She considers it an honor to be among the speakers at Novelists, Inc. (NINC) Conference in Florida in September.

Chris Fox firmly believes that talking about yourself in the 3rd person makes you sound like a giant jackass. He’s written over 20 novels, but is best known among authors for his Write Faster, Write Smarter series. From 5,000 Words Per Hour to Plot Gardening to Write to Market Chris has engineered a road map to take any writer from hobbyist to professional. Chris spent many years in software and data analysis, and has used this model to sell over 300,000 books through Amazon and Audible since 2015. He resides in Marin, California, which can be found by following the scent of entitlement until you reach the town with teens driving Teslas.
As the Chief Storyteller and Co-Founder of One 3 Creative, Houston Howard is a recognized producer, author, speaker and thought leader in the entertainment and branding communities because of his unique and proprietary transmedia approach to story.
Advising entities such as Mattel, Disney Imagineering, Reliance Media Works, West Coast Customs, Samuel Goldwyn Films and Harper Collins Publishing, as well as designing a number of transmedia-focused projects for Fox, the CW, TNT, Slinky and the writers of Toy Story, Houston has an impressive amount of of experience designing projects that are primed for the 21st Century.
When he’s not outlining a new slate of transmedia design books, setting up international co-productions for current transmedia projects or leading a cross-disciplinary creative team, Houston is educating professionals on how to adapt to an ever-changing entertainment landscape. This has included leading workshops for the Television Academy of Arts and Sciences, Producers Guild of America, the National Association of Broadcasters, Act One, Storyworld USA, Beijing International Film Festival, The Greater Los Angeles Writers Conference and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce.
His two books — Make Your Story Really Stinkin’ Big and, his latest, You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Story — have been go-to manuals for creative professionals on how to leverage a variety of media platforms, maximizes revenue potential and engages audiences in new and innovative ways.
