Today's featured author is a fellow Toastmaster and speaker, Alithea (Lisa) Robinson. Alithea and I talk about her very first book, why she wrote it and tons more!!!
Just write your book if you want to write it.
There is no rush for your book if you are trying to publish it because it’s a self-paced process.
Writing can be therapeutic.
Learn the business before jumping in the business.
Master the basics and always be on time.
