With all of the publishing options available today, it might be tempting to write a book and self-publish it. The question is should you?
If you can answer yes to any of the following questions you should seriously consider publishing a book:
BUT if you want to make sure your self-published book doesn’t look like a self-published book, you have to invest in these three things:
You should also invest in someone to help you market your book if you want to sell more than 100 copies.

“I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world, is a revolutionary act. It is an act that can be met with hostility, exclusion, and violence. It can also lead to love, understanding, transcendence, and community. I hope that my being real with you will help empower you to step into who you are and encourage you to share yourself with those around you.” ~ Janet Mock
Your story was meant to be heard.
Have you ever realized that your story may be what inspires another person to take action? To have hope? To make a change?
Would you share your story with me? I would love to share it with the world.
I have lived a rather colorful life, to put things mildly.
Life has been quite difficult, at times.
But I'm still here, and my daughter has been asking (daring?) me to write a book for years.
It will be published in 2018, the year I turn 50.
What's it about? Well, five decades of life experiences and priceless pearls of wisdom, of course. (Hey, my daughter was the one who said priceless pearls of wisdom, not me!) But more than that, it's about encouraging women (and girls) to embrace their badass nature and live their life on their own terms.
It took me 48 years to embrace my badassery and to not be ashamed of it. Not try to squelch it anymore. Not try to be a "nice girl" and smile and be quiet anymore. I don't want other women to have to wait 48 years to live their authentic life and relish their badassery.
"I don't want other women to have to wait
48 years to live their authentic life and relish their badassery."
A short excerpt from my upcoming book:
"What is a Badass?
I'll tell you what it's not: it's not a woman who is grumpy, bitter, and hateful.
What badassery means, in a nutshell?
