I’d like to introduce you to Jodi Brandon.
Here’s her quick bio:
Jodi Brandon has more than 20 years’ experience in book publishing. After graduating from Elizabethtown College (PA) with BAs in professional writing and business administration, she began her career in New York City on staff at William Morrow (now part of HarperCollins) and later moved to book packager Smallwood & Stewart and ultimately to niche publisher Career Press. In 2001, after relocating from New York to Philadelphia, Jodi launched her freelance editing business, with a specialty in non-fiction books. Jodi’s passion these days is working with independent nonfiction authors readying themselves for self-publication as an editor and a writing/publishing coach.

One of the reasons I wanted to interview Jodi was because she traditionally published her first book. That being the case I thought you’d find it interesting that she decided to self-publish her last book. You’ll find out more about this as you listen to the interview.
It’s also fascinating to hear why Jodi wrote her book. It’s a question I’ve posed to all the authors I interview and what I’ve found is that we all have a “why.”
Listen in as we talk about the golden nuggets you need to know to help you write your first book.

I remember how exciting it was for me to go to a networking event after my first book: Sexy Savvy and Successful: A Woman’s Guide On How To Start A Business, Gain Financial Freedom and Buy More Shoes was published.
When it was my turn to get up and introduce myself, I proudly held up my book. After the meeting was over, I was pleasantly surprised by the number of people who wanted to meet me because I was a published author,
The interesting question I’m asked is if my book is on Amazon. They don’t ask if it’s available at Barnes and Noble or any other book store. They want to know if it’s on Amazon!
Pretty interesting, wouldn’t you agree?
