There appears to be an explosion all across the country of women young and old who are leaving fear behind and putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboards to tell their stories!
I love it. Whether it is your life story, creative fiction that lies in your imagination, poetry or essays, get it done. I almost feel like a Modern Renaissance is happening with the amazing women around me. The world needs more stories, the world needs to hear your story so don't hold back.
It makes me smile each time I reach for a book on a special shelf in my bedroom that contains books written by people I know, mostly female friends. I love to read, but it's even more special to support authors in my own circle of friends and influence.
Do you have stacks and stacks of loose paper or notebooks filled with stories you've never shared with the public? Are fear and doubt holding you back? It's a new year and a new season in your life. Remember, anything that is placed within you to write is most likely not just for you. You never know how your story can inspire someone else or help them get through a similar situation. Someone needs what is written in your unpublished book...please don't keep them waiting.
Are you ready to self-publish, but don't know where to start? I can help as well as refer some other great people and businesses to start you on your journey to published author.
Here are some of the great titles by women I know personally:
A Journal of Love from the Heart of a Woman (By Janete Carter)
Pieces of My Story: Keep Loving, Keep Forgiving, Keep Pushing (By Sabrena LeRoy aka Blessed Poet)
Bending But Not Breaking (By Tohnyonah Jackson)
My SOARROARITY Rules (By Ryan Blair-Smith, Tamara Nelson Omondi, LaShonda Mobley and several other co-authors)
And She Laughed (By Anesha Sharpe)
#BeeInspired: Practical Steps for Living a Life Full of Joy! (Bee Smith)
And of course I am the author of Bold, Brave and Courageous: A NO FEAR Success Guide for Teen Girls
