    Ep 131: Nicole Pouchet on Annie's Defiance

    in Books

    Join Angela Lauria as the interviews author Nicole Pouchet on the publishing of her book, Annie's Defiance. 

    Annie's Defiance is the third book of Nicole's Elemental Myths series, so the topic was pretty set even before she started writing the book. She simply focused on the motivations of her characters and the story tells itself, as she put it. 

    Inspired by ancient Incan culture, the book is a paranormal romance involving a prophecy and powers over the elements. She equates the time she devoted to writing the book to life energy spent wisely since being an author is her passion, first and foremost. For Nicole, there's this thrill in finishing a book, even when there's a system or structure to the process. "Maybe I’m a type-A person to thrive with structure," she said, "but I couldn’t write a book without deadlines, editorial rules, etc." 

    She credits Difference Press for giving her lifelong habits that help to ensure that she can finish every book that she starts.

    Ep 130: Michelle Mazur on Speaking Up for Your Business

    in Books

    Join Dr. Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator as she interviews author, Dr. Michelle Mazur on the publishing of her book, Speak Up for Your Business: Presentation Secrets for Entrepreneurs Ready to Tell, Sell, and Compel.

    Michelle sees herself as a communication rebel - a kind "leader of the rebellion" or an agent of change - someone who changes lives and the world. For her, being a rebel means someone who isn't simply like everyone else and blazes his or her own path for others to follow. As a rebel of the spoken work, she is the person who makes an impact on people who need to hear her message most and writing this book is one way she's making that impact a lot more noticeable and memorable. "Public speaking is my area of expertise," she said. "I have a Ph.D. in communication so it wasn't hard to focus."

    Ep 129: Patty Lennon on Successful Crowdfunding

    in Books

    Join Angela Lauria of Book Journeys Radio as she interviews Patricia Lennon on the publishing of her book, The Crowdfunding Book. 

    Patty decided to write The Crowdfunding Book, because, as a business coach and crowdfunding expert, she kept receiving requests from people asking for help in their corwdfunding campaigns and she realized that she had been giving the same answers over and over. Getting a book out that can answer common questions was the perfect solution. "The book was a natural extension to the speaking and consulting I was doing," said Patty.

    Patty had dedicated the writing of The Crowdfunding Book to her kids because they were her first funders. She had launched an initial funding campaign for the project and throughout the process of writing the book, her children were her insipiration. What kept her going until the book was finished was her thinking of how proud her kids would be to see their names printed on it.

  • Ep 128: Susan Hyatt on Creating Your Own Luck

    in Books

    Listen to Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator interview Susan Hyatt on the publishing of her book, Create Your Own Luck.

    Author Susan calls herself "the luck creator." The topic of luck became clear to her for this book after she used what she calls her box system which consists of three fabric-covered photo boxes where she placed book topic ideas. It took a while, but it soon became clear that the topic of luck was not going to let go of her. So, it's those ideas that became the kernels for her book on luck. Susan's work as a speaker on magnetizing luck complements her book

    Ep 127: Lisa Culhane on Unfriending One's Guilt

    in Books

    Join Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator as she interviews Lisa Culhane, author of Discover the New G Spot (or How to Unfriend Your Guilt).

    Lisa had been blogging about gratitude when the idea for Discover the New G Spot hit her. The topic seemed a good place to begin for her and as a professed bibliophile, writing this book was a milestone though it was less of a vision and more of an idea of how it would be for her to become an author, writing instead of just reading books. 

    Lisa describes Discover the New G Spot as saucy. It's really based on stories from her family's travels and focuses on guilt and gratitude, not the more racy stuff that are usually associated with the term G spot.
