Angela Lauria

Hi, I’m Dr. Angela Lauria and I am The Author Incubator. I am a well-respected Life Coach, and doctor of communications, and also an entrepreneur and internationally recognized expert in online direct response marketing and Diffusion of Innovation theory. I’m a voracious reader, especially of self-help and philosophy books, and I have been a student of A Course in Miracles since 1992. I feel lucky to have been coached by Brooke Castillo, Cindy Roman, Jeanette Eleff, Alina Frank, and Barbara Kenyon.

Through reading, therapy, and coaching, I have married my natural gift for logic, order, and analysis with the freedom and passion of connection. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and a Master’s degree in Media & Public Affairs from The George Washington University.

In 2004, I received a PhD magna cum laude in Communications from the European Graduate School. My dissertation “From Medea to Media: Live Performance as a Vehicle for Social Change” was published by ATRPOS PRESS as part of the Think Media Philosophy Series. In 2009, I was certified as a Life Coach from The Coaching Academy of North America.

I have helped over 330 authors-in transformation write, publish, and promote their books. In 2017, The Author Incubator was ranked #285 on the Inc. 500 fastest growing companies and I was named by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top 10 most inspiring entrepreneurs to watch – one of only 2 women on the list.

I am the author of of Make ‘Em Beg to Publish Your Book: How To Reach A Larger Audience & Make A Full-Time Income In The Extremely Overcrowded World of Personal DevelopmentThe Incubated Author: 10 Steps to Start a Movement with Your Message and The Difference: 10 Steps To Writing A Book That Matters.

Are you a miracle worker? A Life Coach, writer, body worker, or other solo practitioner whose work makes the world a better place? Maybe I can help you explode your positive impact on the planet by teaching you what I know about books. If the mere thought of writing makes you feel stressed out, overwhelmed, or otherwise unhappy and yet you still feel attracted to it, I can help; I’ll marry my practical, tactical advice with a bit of life coaching so we can overcome the obstacles that prevent you from finding your most vibrant and authentic voice.
