You want to write a book! That’s exactly why you are here. You have something to share. Some information or story that will make people better, smarter, healthier, etc.  You have a great concept but have no idea how book publishing works.

You’ve asked yourself some of these questions:

  • Am I even ready to write a book?
  • Who will read it?
  • Do I self-publish or go with an established publishing house?
  • Do I actually do the writing or do I hire a ghostwriter?
  • How much time do I need to take off to write my dream book?

These are all valid questions every 1st time author asks at some point. Seldom, the answers are obvious or readily accessible.

Publishing

Bren's Point A

I went after a deal but that resulted in tremendous frustration.

I was represented by a literary agency, but they didn’t get it me or the concept. They got the attention of a huge publishing company in NY, but they ultimately came back with words no one wants to hear.

“Your work is good but no one knows you. You don’t have a platform.”

I was frustrated and disappointed but that editor was so right. I had to figure it out after answering a series of questions. And when I did, I got that call. “We’d love to publish a book based on your cuisine.”

I got started and NO ONE told me how hard it would be. What the process looks like. How to write a book without missing deadlines. Without burning out. Without feeling like walking away.

Bren's Point B!

I Did It!

Critically acclaimed cookbook reviewed in over 50 publications and featured at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.


4.5 star rating on Amazon!
