Hi, I'm Sylvia Melena.

I’m the Founder and Principal of Melena Consulting Group, a leadership and management training, consulting, and book coaching company. 

I’m also the Founder of the Nonfiction Book Accelerator™ Academy, a two-time international award-winning and best-selling author, and the former Vice President of the San Diego Book Awards Association, where I chaired yearly nonfiction book competitions.

I served four years as a Judge for the National Association of Hispanic Publications’ José Martí Awards.

So, you’re in good hands.

Because of my first nonfiction business book, my leadership philosophy has been featured by the Society of Human Resources Management HR Today, the Human Performance Association, Entrepreneur, LEADx, My Quest for the Best, and other outlets.

And despite having education and experience in writing decent English, I’m still the Queen of Typos! But that doesn’t hold me back. 

Whatever you think is your challenge, it won’t hold you back either!

Writing My First Book Was Hard, But It Doesn't Have to Be That Way for You

I remember the excitement at the thought of becoming a published author and all the doors it was going to open for my leadership development business and me.

I also remember the fear, self-doubt, and sheer overwhelm. And I especially remember feeling like there was so much to learn I didn’t know where to start.

So, I invested lots of time and money to learn how to successfully write, self-publish, and market a nonfiction book from the ground up.

As a total newbie with zero platform, I struggled along the way. But in spite of this, I successfully wrote, self-published, and marketed my first nonfiction book that impacts thousands of leaders around the world each year.

In spite of the naysayers, the book sold thousands of copies in five continents in its first year alone and was recognized by notable book awards at the local, national, and international levels. At the international level, it won in competition with books from a variety of publishers: independent, traditional, small, and large, including the largest traditional publishing houses around the globe. 

Thanks to its success, Supportive Accountability and its Spanish translation is used to train leaders in workplace and university settings.

And you know what? With the tips, tools, and resources I’m going to give you, writing and publishing your first nonfiction book is a lot easier than it seems. It does require work, but it doesn’t have to be complicated.

Yes, you can do it too! And you can do it without struggling.

You’ll need to research, plan, and take action. And that’s EXACTLY what I walk you through in the “Idea to Manuscript” Group Coaching Program. 

Here’s to your successful first nonfiction book!
