Episode 162: From Bud to Bloom: The Author Journey

aging playfully Nov 29, 2023

It's a Late Bloomer Living Takeover!



My dear friend and Salty Sister, the Freaking Fabulous Cat Corchado is taking the reins for this episode.  

In celebration of my new book In Full Bloom: a guide to aging playfully, Cat is interviewing me for my own podcast!  

Cat is in the middle of edits for her own book, so we sat down to talk about the path we've taken to becoming published authors.  Neither of us ever planned to write a book, but here we are at the age of 55 and the age of 65 becoming published authors.  Neither of us are comfortable with the title "author".  

We start and end the conversation laughing, and throw in a little bit of advice for anyone who's got dreams of writing and publishing a book.  Hint: If a little voice is telling you you should write a book, do it!  Get started.  You don't need permission.  You don't need an agent.  You don't need a publisher.  You can go around the gate keepers and do it yourself.  

We didn't get here on our own. If you need support on your new author journey here are suggestions for people who can help you get started.

Do you want to share your own story?  Holly Totten is a writing coach and book editor who offers a New Author Intensive.  She is brilliant, and has a sure hand to help you get through the process of getting your story out of your head and onto paper. 

Are you a heartbroken artist? Do you have shame and vulnerability around sharing your writing and art? Nina Hart is a creativity coach who can help you move forward to tell your brave stories.

Do you have dreams of writing your first novel? Beth Barany is an award-winning novelist and certified creativity coach for writers. She specializes in helping writers experience clarity, so they can write, revise, and proudly publish their novels to the delight of their readers.
