Insights on converting your blog to a book

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.
This episode is FULL of incredible information, especially if writing a book is on your bucket list.  Check out what we dive into and don’t miss the AWESOME freebie at the end of the podcast.
