Iris Bolling

Let me tell you a little about me. I am an author, publisher, filmmaker, entrepreneur. What you know as Siri Austin Entertainment was once Siri Austin Enterprises.  My first 3 series were published under that name. In 2015 I began doing films and changed the name to Siri Austin Entertainment. I was named Conversations Magazine Top 25 Women to Watch 2 years in a row. I’ve been mentioned in NBC News, USA Today, Style Weekly Magazine and others. To date I’ve written 7 series, 30 plus novels, 13 scripts, directed 3 films and produced 13. I’ve won several awards from author of the year, to book of the year. In addition to the experience I bring to the table, I am also a certified adult trainer with a little over 10 years experience. That is what makes me an expert in the area of Self-publishing. And now I am here to share that knowledge with you.

2020 Believe Logo
"I believe anyone who is an independent author has already taken the first step to GIY. You did not wait for one of the big five publishers to give you the green light. You decided to self-publish because you believed in YOU. That is what this series of workshops are all about...helping others to GET IT YOURSELF."
