Join Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator as she interviews author Rachel Rose Alexandria on the publishing of her book, Woman Overboard! Six Ways Women Avoid Conflict and One Way to Live Drama-Free.
Rachel didn't start work on Woman Overboard until she was sure that she HAD a topic that HAD to be written, and it had to be written by HER. Those were the criteria and, lo and behold, the perfect topic did come to her and so the book was born.
Although it took two years for the book to be realized, Rachel said she just kept paying attention and allowed her own obsession to carry her through. "My passion was stronger than my resistance."
Woman Overboard is about managing conflict which the author believes is the root of what holds women back in leadership.
In the interview, Rachel also asks the qustion, "What if being 'good' is keeping you from being truly Great?" There's more about this on Healing for Good Girls.

Join Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator as she interviews Jill Angie, author of the book, Running with Curves.
Writing Running with Curves turned into something pivotal for Jill. She wrote the book that she wished had existed when she started running almost 20 years ago, which was when she did everything through trial and error. She wanted to help others in the same boat as she was to avoid all of the experimentation and just get right to enjoying being a runner regardless of size.
She said that if she had known how life- and career-changing it would be, she would have started earlier. "I thought I just wanted to be someone that had written a book - but along the way, I became much more in tune with where I wanted to take my career," she said.

Join Dr. Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator as the interviews author Julia Roberts on the publishing of her book, Sex, Lies, and Creativity, which is her third book. It's actually an easy-to-read version of her Masters research, stripped of its academic opacity and made to sing, as she put it, For Roberts, it's more important to move the reader than to create an unassailable argument in a labored defensive style of writing. "It just flowed," she said about the writing of the book. "I knew the material and was writing it for the reader."
The best thing to come out of having this book, according to Roberts, was being on Bestseller status ontwo different lists: Creativity & Genius and Women's Studies.
