Wow guys! I’m super excited to have had this little break lately in my business. There truly are gifts in this time.
I’m Nicole Gabriel, by the way, and the host of the Let’s Get Your Book Published podcast.
Over the last week I have been in between clients. It’s often this happens in my business when one client finishes writing a book and goes off to the printer and another has just completed the book cover design but not ready for the interior book layout yet. I get a break to re-group!
For me…THIS is a GLORIOUS time to play catch-up. But, this time in particular has been simply awesome. I adore what I do for a living and every day that I get to do what I do I am blessed beyond words. I have fought really hard throughout my life to find my calling and doing what I do for my career is a large part of stepping into it! Every day I’m truly blessed. I thank my clients and you, my listeners!
As an entrepreneur we sometimes have to fight extra...
Hey Guys Nicole Gabriel here!
A book makes an opinion fact…have you ever thought about this? I mean really thought about this? When something is written it seems to be accepted in mainstream culture as fact. Something gets debated and well…so-and-so said it was true…see, it is written here. A quote seems to be gospel for truth, even though it’s simply a personal thought captured and repurposed. We all toss around these meme’s on social media like some kind of gospel for inspiration, motivation, or to provoke deep thought. But, how many of us are original thinkers with original thoughts and opinions?
Those that really take the time to get to know me know that I’m not the fun-time girl some would like to make my out to be. I’m blonde so I guess that comes with the territory. It’s been a battle I’ve fought my whole life…people that want to make you into the likeness that fits for them. I know from a more advanced and...
Hey Guys! Nicole Gabriel here!
I’ve been wanting to talk about this for awhile. Given that politics is so dividing currently, let’s talk about the division in self publishing vs traditional publishing as well…
Have you seen the chatter on Donald Trump Jr…the article in the New York Times says:
Self-Publishing Is a Gamble. Why Is Donald Trump Jr. Doing It?
His next book, “Liberal Privilege,” comes with an unusual distribution plan and no publishing house behind it, making it something of a curiosity in the industry.
I’ll post the link to the article over on my blog: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/06/books/donald-trump-jr-liberal-privilege.html
Literary agents are calling it “a risk” that Trump choses to self publish and they are claiming he hired researchers to comb through Mr. Biden’s record and wrote the book in about three months during lock down.
The article discusses the high-level differences between traditional...
Hey Guys! How are you holding up with all the chaos in our world? I’m sorry I missed my podcast last week, but I was on the road traveling. I told you I bought what I am fondly referring to as the “super bus”? Well, the pups and I packed her up and took a drive to visit mom and dad in Michigan. I know it’s crazy to think I haven’t gone south in the winter, but with all the chaos in the world it was just time to go home for nurturing. Sometimes life gets wild and returning to familiar gives you a bit of grounding and comfort. So, here we are being mobile in the super bus! We have a home and an office on wheels! There is something quite freeing about this. With all the chaos we can pick up and go wherever we need. We aren’t bound anywhere. And we left Utah just in time for the arrival of snow! In fact, up on our arrival here in Michigan we had mid 70’d and sun. It was awesome to have a few nice days to get acclimated.
Anyhow, I hope...
As the Let's Get Your Book Published program begins to launch and content is rolled out over the website, social media, podcasts, and YouTube videos a transformation of self is happening on a grand scale. As many writers do, we bounce between fear, faith, stepping into our authenticity, and toying with how to represent ideas in a more hypothetical "it wasn't me" way...you know what I mean if you are a writer, you also know if you are an entrepreneur.
Sometimes God gives us a gift to share and we feel so compelled to do it that we must write, build our business, share our "thing"...it's the longing to step into our truth.
Ernest Hemingway said:
"All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know."
So, let's start there!
The birth and the growth of this program and its accompanied book were a true labor of love with the ultimate divine inspiration. This program was birthed through many trials and stands today as an accomplishment for its...
