I’m coming up on my 2nd anniversary of hosting Book Journeys Radio, my weekly radio address to authors-in-transformation and I’m proud to say I have reached my goal of interviewing 100 authors! You see, when I started my show I was on a mission to discover what authors who finished their book had in common and why so many people who say they want to write a book, don’t! I’m putting my findings into my next book and I can’t wait to share them with you. Turns out, successful authors have a lot in common.
Each week we feature an author and we talk to them about their experience writing, publishing and promoting their book. Next week I’m talking to Laura Erdman-Luntz, author of a book called Awaken to Joy.
Hosting the show is the highlight of my week, so even though I’ve reached my goal, I’m continuing on with the program. We have hundreds of listeners each week and I love the feedback I’ve been getting about how this show is inspiring to folks who want to finish their books.
Two take-aways I want to share with you about my experience the past 2 years:
- If you are thinking about writing a book, listening to the archives from the show can be a great way to get inspiration and ideas for how to make it happen. You can find the archives here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/book-journeys. If you can only listen to one, check out my interview with bestselling author, Pam Grout.
- Hosting your own show on Blog Talk Radio (or another internet radio station), can be a great way for you to build your credentials. I am now the host of a highly successful radio show for authors-in-transformation and I’ve talked to more than 100 authors about their experience writing a book. What could you host a show about to increase your credibility and grow your knowledge base?
Having a radio show has been a great addition to my coaching and publishing businesses. It’s a pretty simple thing I’ve done that’s made a big difference in my business. And more than anything — it’s a blast!!!
Hope you can listen in!
P.S. If you have written and published a book, drop me a note — I’d love to have you on the show!
