Today we’d like to introduce you to Rebecca Nietert.
Raised southeast of Chicago by a single parent Rebecca Nietert was raised with meager means. She struggled with finding equitable employment and had to leave her home town with just $250 in her pocket, to move to the then-booming oil industry in Houston, Texas. With little options of governmental assistance for school and no real-life skills, she failed miserably and became homeless.
Through a decade of struggles and an abundance of odd jobs, she put herself through school. She developed life skills and ultimately landed jobs that gave her a unique entrepreneurial job experience. She finally left Houston to help out a trusted friend in Dallas, Texas and that is where she met and married her current husband. Together they built their lives around the fundamental belief that if you want something bad enough, hard work is all it takes.
Currently, Ms. Nietert lives and thrives in the literary community of Dallas, Texas. She is currently the founder and leader of two local Meetup groups, Lone Star Writers Club and Networking with the Author. She mentors over 1200+ local authors to complete their work, publish and market. Through Easton-Books, her publishing company she offers Legacy Books, Ghost Writing Services, Book Coaching, and Publication to authors. Ms. Nietert became a board of director for Authors Marketing Guild, an international marketing company in 2018, and merged the efforts of the connections into Networking with the Author a paid membership group for all literary professionals to establish grassroots organic marketing. Her goal is to be the #1 BEST Author Support in Texas, allowing published authors to compete in the top 5 sales markets.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Overcoming hopelessness was a major obstacle to success. Having a life filled with traumatic events is one thing but the inability to provide security is a major hindrance to confidence. Most young people face this reality, but for some who are without the tools given, it is much harder. It’s not how many times you fall in life that create your character, it’s how you persevere after you’ve fallen that makes your destiny. Life is about chaos and change. You can either accept and role with it, or let it drag you into the pit of despair. Finding hope takes great courage.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am a Publisher, Publicity Agent, Marketer, Speaker, Writing Coach, Ghost Writer, Author, Wife of 26 years, Mother of five beautiful children and 5 fur-babies.
As a Publisher, what sets me apart is my genuine compassion for authors. I too, have written two brilliant novels about a young woman searching for love without the benefit of genuine love given parentally or otherwise. More than anyone, I understand the angst that is filled within the storytelling pages. However, I believe if you have a story it is my duty to cheer you on to tell your story. Integrity comes from my willingness to watch others succeed. I am proud of the work that I do and proud of the ability to relate what I have learned over the last 15 years in this business with authors.
As a writer, there is no great accomplishment than the ability to tell a great story and have it resonate with readers.
I believe that we grow exponentially and in that growth, we have the ability to think outside the box. My gift is relationships. Talking about them. Building them. Creating a collective inclusion where none existed. To me, a judgment-free zone with people of like-minded equality are the best people to be around and I am honored to have the most amazing collective meetups like Networking with the Author and Lone Star Writer’s Club. There are over 1,200 members in these groups and it humbles me to think that authors want to be part of something that not only benefits them but makes them feel valued and successful.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success to me is waking up every single day and knowing that I had a powerful impact on someone else’s life. Whether I teach a class, coach a writer, publish a book someone wrote, the most incredible heart check is to know when I lay my head down on my pillow I have lead authors, my children, my husband, my confidants, and my family to succeed in their goals. If I have touched a soul a day, I feel like my destiny has been filled. My goal is to be as transparently genuine as I can be with the knowledge that some might not find me likable, while others will be truly as honored as I am to align our talents.
