You Can’t Make This St*ry Up!

Writing a book is a journey.

…and because of my guest, Amanda Johnson, I have now written 4 that have been released with the 5th one currently on the table. Today, we are talking all about the book publishing industry, the journey that is writing a book and the healing that comes through the telling of your story.

Amanda had been writing all through high school and college, helping others write better papers and editing their writing for publishing. Forever the editor of other people’s stories but never one of her own.

With a little one at home and a marriage that was falling apart, Amanda got her chance to work with her mentor. It was on this part of her writing journey that she came to realize the value she had to offer to the world and her story that was ready to be told.

Are you being called to write your story? There is no time like now to get started and this episode is your inspirational jumping off point.

Join me and Amanda Johnson to learn just how possible it is to tell your story to the world.
