Inkers Con has exactly what you need.

You Might Be...

Just Starting Out in Your Author Journey

Way to go! Jumping into the author world can be exhilarating (and a little scary)! We find a lot of newer authors struggle when they’re just getting started. They might be lacking confidence and missing knowledge of writing & publishing fundamentals. The amount of information to learn can seem overwhelming… but it doesn’t have to be. We know you’re excited to learn and ready to be successful and you’re absolutely in the right place, here at Inkers Con.

Published & Seeking More Success

You have published at least 1 book and you’re ready to take your career to the next level. You know you need to be thinking more about marketing, advertising, and start treating your authoring as a business. You’ve probably tried various strategies but still aren’t quite achieving the results you want. You’re on the right path, and Inkers Con is absolutely what you need to increase your success and satisfaction in your career.

Advanced & Ready to Become an Expert

You’ve published a handful (or more!) of books and are very serious about your career. Now you want to refine your business processes, improve your ads, and elevate your craft skills, but are struggling to find advanced and current insights that can help you accomplish these goals. You are ready to figure out how to work smarter so that you can earn more while allowing yourself the time and enjoyment that you deserve.

Regardless of which path you find yourself on…

It can be difficult to figure out why you aren’t reaching the level of success that you and your books deserve. Often, it’s just a small missing piece of the puzzle that needs to be revealed and fit into place, and voila! Everything starts to work as it should.

This piece could be a shift in mindset, a reorganization of your finances and business spending, a redirection of your marketing and branding, or a new writing method, style, or production schedule. Some authors don’t just have one missing piece, they have several – and that’s okay too!

The good news is, with the right knowledge and implementation...

You can accomplish all of your goals.

From One Author to Another

Hi! I’m Alessandra Torre. I started writing novels with no formal training and stumbled quite a bit in the first few years of my career. Without a support system or reliable advice, I had to figure things out as I went, and I made a lot of mistakes and missed several important opportunities. In my third year of publishing, I made an important decision — to start treating my writing as a business. I realized that while I was working really, really hard… I wasn’t working smart.

And worse — I didn’t know HOW to work smart, because I had big giant gaps of knowledge.So I consciously chose to start taking the right steps. I started to learn. I invested in expert instruction, conferences, coaching, and community. 

And when I had a rockstar network and knowledge base in place, I worked with a team of conference planning and business professionals to bring Inkers Con to life. We set out to create a special curation of classes, panels, and discussions that would go on to magnify and revitalize an experienced author’s career, as well as pave a path to success for thousands of new and growing author careers. 

Every year, I hand-select and assemble the classes and curriculum that will best meet the current marketing and publishing landscape. I look at new and emerging trends, business opportunities, market conditions, and recent success stories.

We focus on topics that can make an immediate and powerful difference in an author’s product, sales, and workload. Our goal is to help you work smarter, not harder… 

To build a consistent income and audience that will allow you to write full-time, or take your family on a vacation, or remove financial pressures from your life.

Whether you’re starting your first novel or publishing your 33rd, our 2022 lineup is waiting for you, and will have an immediate and powerful impact in your life.

It is time to start thinking of your author career as...

a future empire

Inkers Con will lead you toward that mindset and that future.

I believe in it 100% because I’ve seen the difference it can make, in both my career and hundreds of others. I am so confident in it that I’ve put my name and reputation behind it, and personally guarantee 100% satisfaction in your purchase. If you don’t love your Inkers Con experience, you’ll get a full money-back refund. No questions asked.

Are you ready to try something new? Are you ready to commit to yourself and to your writing and to give your books the knowledge, inspiration, and confidence that they deserve?

Great! I can’t wait to see you inside…

First let me back up a bit and tell you about the major premise this conference is built upon. We discovered that…

Every successful writer has excelled in 4 areas...





And making sure YOU have these four pillars dialed in became our core mission in helping advance writers around the world. It’s the driving force behind bringing together bestselling authors and industry experts to teach you exactly HOW to uplevel your skills and strategies in each of these four key areas.

And that’s why I’m so excited and honored to introduce you to…

It’s Time For Some Real Talk...

Let’s take a peek into what not joining Inkers Con might look like…

You’ve probably watched YouTube videos (no judgment – there are some great resources there) or gotten advice from author Facebook groups and found some things that work for you. You’ve tried out different marketing activities but you are not sure which one to focus on, or which ones are working. You might be so frustrated with the business side of writing that you sometimes think “I just want to write”. Staying on that path often leads to a dead end.

Between you and I – I’ve created this conference for authors that are stuck… I want you to break free of that rut and become confident in your writing and your ability to promote and sell your books. I want you to feel empowered to make marketing, advertising, and business decisions with concrete actionable information. Your investment into Inkers Con is a direct path to the understanding and confidence you need to take your career to the next level. I bet you’ve been thinking about how to boost your writing career (you wouldn’t have found us if not) and aren’t sure where to turn. I was in the same place when I created Inkers Con – looking for guidance I could trust.

I’m so proud of the list of speakers and classes we offer, and these classes changed the way I approach my books and my business. It’s a wealth of information, examples, and tips that every indie author needs to be able to confidently make decisions and create incredible novels. The knowledge I gained from these classes changed the way I approached my books and my business: I worked smarter, wrote more effortlessly, and made spending decisions with confidence. It felt amazing!

I genuinely want you to be successful.

So right now, I see that you have two paths to choose from… Will you continue the same efforts, struggle with the same problems, and have a similar level of sales and success? Or will you arm yourself with the knowledge and skills to boost your business, income, and writing in incredible ways?

If you set aside an hour per week (just one hour!) and watch one Inkers Con class, in six months you’ll be a more talented, business-savvy, and confident author. You’ll have the knowledge you need to make big and powerful changes in your writing, marketing, and branding. Are you ready to make the next six months the best six months of your author career? With our 100% money-back guarantee and six years of access, you are at no risk to jump right in. I’ll see you on the inside.
