New Zealander has US Self-Help industry talking


Press Release

New Zealander has US Self-Help industry talking,


so why isn’t New Zeland listening?


Kiwi author, Emma Mildon, confirms America really is the land of opportunities


Talked about Author & Columnist, Emma Mildon, is leading the publishing world into the new age - forget the 'New Age' self help books and the multi-billion dollar industry they live in. Mildon believes the 'Tweenage' market is ready for fun, juicy, real young adult self help material and she has the books, content and the teen following to prove it. So why did this kiwi writer have to go to America to get heard?


Mildon had all but ‘given up’ on the New Zealand Publishing and Creative Industries when she left for America back in 2010. After being rejected and auto-declined from most of the major publishing players in New Zealand she decided she would take the work she had originally envisioned being to kiwi tweens with her, and when she knocked on the door of the US Publishing market the response she got was resounding.


Today Mildon works with one of Americas leading editors, Julie Clayton, who worked behind the well-known self-help success ‘The Secret’. Her agent, American Randy Peyser, has had her books camo in feature films such as ‘Eat, Pray, Love’. She even got invited to New York City to meet the CEO of the worlds biggest Self Help Publisher, Hay House. Upon returning to New Zealand Mildon is still hoping that New Zealand can freshen up its outlook for new talent so that they don’t miss out!


Is New Zealand rejecting its talent too fast? Take Flight of the Concords – and their success to fame in America after their NZ rejection. Mildon believes there needs to be more open doors in New Zealand, otherwise future generations will keep looking abroad to follow their dreams. She has returned to New Zealand in the hopes of kicking down some serious doors.

Mildon is back in NZ on the 21st of November, and available for interview from Thursday 22nd of November.
