Through the StrongHerMe Facebook group I learned that several women in the community are writing books. For the month of April I’m interviewing women who are making their living within the publishing industry. Get your notepads ready. No more excuses! It’s time to start pushing your words out into the world.
LaToya is a professional editor and writer who has guided coaches, entrepreneurs, veterans, moms, corporate professionals, ministers, and soon YOU toward self-publishing a book. Her superpower is getting your book out of your head and onto the page. With 15 years of experience and a couple of degrees under her belt, she helps aspiring authors annihilate procrastination, fear, and excuses by motivating them to write well and write now by just writing.
In this episode we do a deep dive into self publishing: costs to expect and what to invest your money in, should you request reviewers to sign an NDA agreement, copyrighting your book title and we even discuss what do you do if you have a story to tell but writing isn’t your strength? Her response to that question was worth listening to the entire podcast.
“Content is not lost or destroyed it is just transferred. Use what you already have.” -LaToya Thompson
