The Purple Shelf Club is a book blog created to help YOU; a self-publishing author who loves to read and write fiction.
Ever since you were little, you loved to read. Stories fueled your imagination and were even a form of escapism for you. They inspired you to be who you are today; a writer. I want a cozy and organized reading space.
Now, you are an adult who still wants to live out her dream of becoming a full-time author. You lead a busy schedule with work and your family. In fact, you may be thinking:
Am I a talented writer? I don’t have enough time to write. Writer’s block sucks!
Coming up with a quality story idea is so hard. Book research is intimidating and I don’t know where to start. I feel overwhelmed by all the advice out there and I don’t know what to follow.
My book won’t be original enough. No one will read my book. I’m afraid no one will care about my book.
If you have these thoughts, you are in the right place.
Hi, I’m Alexis
I live in my own world 24/7. In my world, I read amazing books, wear my heart on my sleeve, and follow my curiosities and passions.
I am fascinated by all things art. My hobbies include going to the movies, visiting museums, traveling/exploring unknown places, painting, and trying new things. One day I would like to play the piano and violin and I’d like to know sign language.
I also enjoy learning and working. I am currently going to school to be a research scientist in neuroscience. Research is the ultimate passion for me. I am fascinated by neurodegenerative disorders and stem cell research. One day, I hope to leave a mark in my field.
Why I started this blog
To say I love reading is an understatement. I understand the impact a story can have on a person. So I want more people to read! My curiosity has led me to become a book blogger on the side.
In May 2020, I created the Purple Shelf Club for self-publishing authors who love to read and write fiction. I wanted a hobby that I was passionate about. I started thinking about all the things I love to do and landed on reading. So, I created a book blog where I could talk about the amazing books I love.
Escaping into a fictional world for a while is like a release. I get to relax and be adventurous at the same time! There is no better combination. However, without authors like you, this blog wouldn’t exist. That is why I started providing writing advice, created a quarterly contest, and provide editing services to accompany this blog.
Why I started providing editing services
You know what it’s like to read an amazing book that takes you into a whole new world. You want to have a lifestyle where you can experience and create these new worlds.
My mission is to help you on your journey because I know how frustrating it is to be a self-publishing author.
Most book bloggers won’t even consider reviewing a self-published author. But why is that? Simply put, self-published books do not appear to have the same effort put into them as traditionally self-published books.
But I know you want to be different. You are the kind of person who wants a book that:
- Looks amazing inside and out
- Is edited to perfection
- Readers can’t stop talking about
- Reviewers say is “irresistible”, “captivating”, and “the best read this year”
You are not alone!
I started editing when I realized that so many self-published authors were struggling with getting their books into the hands of readers. These authors were looking to their friends and family for editing help or asking for feedback in forums on Reddit and Goodreads. But they weren’t really getting the quality driven help they needed.
As a result, self-published authors are getting a bad rep. Book bloggers and readers won’t even give these authors a chance because they know the book won’t be written as well as their traditionally published counterparts. So, I am changing that by providing book evaluations and developmental edits.
At the Purple Shelf Club, I provide book reviews, blogging tips, and posts relating to books, travel, and writing. There are so many people who love to read and see the world. The Purple Shelf Club was created for self-publishing authors who love to read, write, and travel. They are passionate people, world seekers, and world creators.
I have many passions in life, one of which lies in connecting with people. I know that my readers can see this in my writing. You can learn more about my writing style through my blog posts.
