The road to becoming an author begins when you realize that a story in your life demands to be told. At first glance, writing a memoir looks easy enough. Easier than writing fiction. After all, there is no need to make up a story or characters, and the protagonist is none other than you. Still, memoir writing carries challenges and possibilities, and the first one is to decide to begin. Let’s dive into how Jill Phillips got started on her path to her first published book.
Jill became a first-time author in retirement because she wanted to capture and record her family's stories before they were lost forever. Memories are precious and carry wisdom that can benefit others by broadening their perspective. My conversation with Jill about her self-publishing journey gives you insight into what she learned and tools she used that can help you to start telling your own story. She delivers her advice while sharing some of her own memoirs from her first book 'Lamlash Street.'
Listen to the end as I share 8 SIMPLE STEPS to publishing your first book.
