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.
