She started off as a copywriter and even helped me write the Doctor Me First workbook and the copy on the website. It wasn’t long before she realized however that her love of writing went beyond copy.
Now she’s not only an author but also a coach and owns a hybrid publishing company all geared toward helping others navigate the process of writing, marketing, and selling their books.
Brooke has been there. She’s been in the shoes of the person who is trying desperately to get the story in their head onto paper. There were a few key things she did to help her get past those moments and keep pushing toward her end goal.
Listen as she talks about how long it took her to finish and then publish “Catchlight,” why traditional publishing may not be for you, and the time commitment it really takes to write a book. This was an amazing conversation and if you’re looking to write a book, reach out to Brooke! She won’t steer you wrong.
