From Rejected, Struggling Writer to (Unexpected) Bestselling Author

"The funny thing about a writing career is that you can only plan so much of it. The high points come out of the blue; the low points seems to drag on longer than anticipated; and the inspired writing phases can pass in the blink of an eye.

Each of my 10 books came about through various inspirations and situations that I never planned or had mapped out. My first book, "The Art of Trapeze", took 5 years to write, and I dealt with rejection from literary agents and discouragement within myself. One influential literary agent wasted no time rejecting me to my face, which required me to dig deeper and believe in myself even more to self-publish my first book on my own terms.

But once the book was finally completed and released, it took off and had over 30,000 copies downloaded globally, hitting #2 on Amazon behind "12 Years A Slave". (Yes, a small part of me wanted to let those literary agents know about that. :) I then wrote 3 more books in one year, followed by 4 more books in 2 years.

I only started writing in my early thirties. It is an ongoing dream that I am still pursuing and exploring. I do my best to improve as much as possible to benefit the reader as much as possible. Most importantly, I hope my books bring you greater healing, light, joy, understanding, forgiveness, and smiles in your life."

With over 30,000 copies of my debut memoir, "The Art of Trapeze" downloaded globally, I have a few things to share with you about writing a memoir and why vulnerability is a super power.

 

Top 10 Thoughts On Writing A Memoir, Putting It Out Into The World, and Realizing People Read It

 

1. You'll only feel good about what you write if it comes from your heart, which feels like a big-fat-giant-scary risk at first. However, there are enough ego-based books out there, full of platitudes and typical outcomes and mainstream advice, so trust that what you authentically share is relatable to YOUR peeps (not everyone; just YOUR peeps who are on the same wave length).
 

2. You'll hate the book a million times before you hit publish on Amazon. It will be in the trash, the gutter, and heavily edited many times as you wrestle with what to say. The creative process is never dull and the inner perfectionist is never quiet.

 

3. Private messages from readers will touch you. Discussing depression, success, love, adventure, emotional vulnerabilities, and fears on paper will push you deeper into yourself. It will all sound crazy and lonely at times, until you receive unexpected feedback, such as:
 

"Molly, This book is going to stay with me for a while. Thank you for its gifts."

"The energy around me is one of the phoenix and I feel as vulnerable and delicate as a fairy. I have just started reading The Art of Trapeze and it's such a support through these winds of change - thank you thank you for your courage to share, express and inspire."

"I have experienced many of the things you shared in your memoir, but as a male, it isn't socially acceptable for me to put it out there. Please know your story has connected to my masculine self, and lightened my inner load."

"I'm reading your book 'trapeze artist' and just read 'The Awakening' chapter! WOW!! Perfect timing for me (finding you, your work teachings and insights) as I am teetering on the edge of the step with both hands gripping the bar..."

"Your words inspired me to heal something I've been avoiding. I also shared this book with my best friend, I hope you don't mind."

 

4. An author never minds if you share their book(s) with your best friends.
 

5. It will be the worst book in the world to some reviewers. Bad reviews are part of being a public artist; it comes with the territory. (Personal attacks, unfortunately, are standard these days for authors. I have seen a lot of slander and mean things written for numerous memoirs. Yet readers are smart; they see through this when they are your peeps.)

 

6. It will be the best book in the world to other reviewers. (Just do not tell these people about Hemingway, Angelou, Thoreau, Joyce, Theroux, Whitman, Kingsolver, Harper Lee, Dr. Seuss, etc.)
 

7. Neither being the best book, nor the worst book, will be true. You'll just be the best writer you could have been at that time.

 

8. With a memoir, your children will see the truth of who you were back when you were young, adventurous, foolish, unrestrained, and open to the world. Perhaps you will have forgotten this version of yourself, too, until you catch a brief glimpse of the book cover somewhere out in the world.
 

9. At the end of your life, you'll be proud that you took a shot and contributed a small fraction of a small life story to the larger whole of storytelling.

 

10. Take the risk to go deeper. Memoirs have the power to intimately connect with a reader. Honor this opportunity in the best way you can. Life is a grand adventure, so why not put yourself out there just a bit more, trusting we have more in common than we realize.

 

 

The Art of Trapeze: One Woman's Journey of Soaring, Surrendering, and Awakening

On a random Thursday morning, with nothing to lose and only a dream to gain, Molly McCord decides to move to Paris, France to follow the courageous call of her heart. She arrives in a city she has never visited before and where she knows no one, yet she trusts her ability to figure it out because her adventurous life has prepared her for this biggest of leaps. She carries the wisdom of Solitude, Strength, Style, Flexibility, Heart, Endurance, and Grace in her non-matching luggage collection.

Molly's soul-riveting experiences unfold in surprising ways as she discovers the joys and realities of life as a foreigner in France, falls in love with a sexy Turkish man, moves her cats across the Atlantic, enjoys the rare opportunity of working for a U.S. Ambassador, and creates the life of her dreams in less than two years.

Yet when unexpected developments require her to surrender once again, a higher consciousness catches her with a deeper spiritual awakening.

The Art of Trapeze soars with emotional honesty, delightful humor, unexpected wisdom, and inspiring spiritual perspectives around living life to the fullest when nothing is guaranteed except gravity.

 

Reached #1 on Amazon in Spiritual Self-Help and Memoirs: Adventurers!

"We’ve all dreamed about making the big leap: a new job, a new country, a new life. Molly McCord did all three, leaving a stable but unsatisfying career in Seattle to start over in Paris, a city she’d never seen. She shares the story in The Art of Trapeze — part memoir, part instruction manual for choosing a different path. As the title implies, trusting yourself as your feet leave the platform is the hardest and most necessary part. Enjoy McCord’s trademark blend of humor, honesty, and self-reflection." ~ Seattle Review of Books

 

The Art of Trapeze had me swinging through a swirl of spirit and sisterhood. An intensely relatable read- down to earth, charming, humorous, poignant, and infinitely wise - for those of us on the path of self discovery and even those who just want a good story - you will love this book!”~ Sass Jordan, Juno Award-winning Artist, Canadian Idol Judge, Broadway actress

 

“An inspiring memoir about a brave go-getter who makes things happen! Molly guides us readers into the power of reemergence as the shining jewels we really are."~ Rosemary Sneeringer, Literary Editor, Author, TheBookNurturer.com


 "Beautifully written, charmingly funny - even hilarious - and remarkably open, honest, and down-to-earth, Ms. McCord has gifted us with a pure example of how life can be such a beautiful, grand adventure..." ~ Starfield Press

The second book in The Awakening Consciousness Series is a must-have guide for any artist, entrepreneur, writer, teacher, or contemporary seeker who is curious about their spiritual journey.


Referencing Joseph Campbell’s highly influential “The Hero’s Journey,” Molly brings groundbreaking wisdom to a modern woman’s experiences of spiritual growth.

Inspiring, original spiritual concepts include:

  • Differences between spirituality and religion
  • The five types of consciousness on the planet now
  • The Elevator and the Spiral
  • Soul Mates, Soul Contracts, Soul Agreements, Soul Groups, Karmic Relationships
  • Past life connections to geographic locations
  • Surrender and supreme separation from God
  • Being conscious in an Unconscious World
  • And more “a-ha” connections and breakthroughs for conscious living


The Modern Heroine’s Journey of Consciousness brilliantly explains the gifts at every phase of spiritual growth and reveals how the inner journey is an awakening to more of herself.
