Brianne Smith

In January 2018, Brianne Smith self-published her first book, Spooning Leads to Forking: A Gay Teen Romance Story. The book met with instant success! She sold 400 copies the first month before Amazon suddenly banned the title from its listings due to the book’s erotic and LGBT content.

Refusing to let her voice be silenced, Brianne decided to make her ebook available for free online and was soon hired as a consultant for My Word Publishing, a company that guides authors through the process of professionally self-publishing their books. She has also been an active member in the community as a volunteer marketing coordinator for the Pikes Peak Small Business Development Center and rekindled her love for writing through her involvement with Poetry 719, Black Voices Matter, and Pikes Peak Writers.

Brianne hopes to become an inspiration to women entrepreneurs and help other aspiring authors avoid the same mistakes she did so they can share their stories with the world.
