I had the honor of being interviewed last week on The Lora Shipman Show and during the podcast, we talked all about taking your blogs to a book. Here’s what Lora shared.
Have you ever wanted to write a book but just didn’t know how to get started? Or, what if you have a bunch of content that you knew would be great to put together in a book but weren’t sure how to link it all together? You are in for a treat! Listen in on my latest podcast episode as I speak with writer, editor, and storyteller Deborah Kevin.
