EP – 87 Stories With Grandpa

Our conversation with Josiah Fogle

Josiah Fogle has created children’s books to help his children experience the vital lessons that John Fogle instilled in him. Josiah admired his father and was influenced by him through spending years as a family in the Philippines as missionaries. Through writing about Grandpa John, Josiah has built a bridge between his father’s legacy and Josiah’s children, who are learning about their grandfather through actual family stories and memories and impactful children’s books.

We continue our discussion and dive into the world of writing and publishing for both children’s books and grown-up books. Josiah is a Sales Development Manager with the organization Self Publishing School. You will learn that one thing that sets Josiah apart from many other people working in the publishing game is that Josiah IS a published author.

In our conversation, Josiah educates us on the different types of publishing available today, from simple ebooks to traditional publishing. We discuss the pros and cons of each publishing method and how many successful authors started their journey by choosing the self-publishing route. Josiah also discusses the many services that Self Publishing School has to offer.

All this conversation about publishing and the different options available to authors today will hopefully motivate YOU to jump into the game to create the story that only YOU can tell.

EP – 83 Authorpreneur Central

Our conversation with Nathan Andersen

The conversation is with the co-founder of Authorpreneur Central, Nathan Andersen, aka Anders Roseberg. In this conversation, we jump into Nathan’s varied and exciting background. Nathan is a self-taught individual when creating children’s books and other writing genres.

Nathan talks about living in Taiwan and creating a story and book for his daughter. He discusses his experience with finding a way to print the book. Nathan was bit by the creativity bug and soon created the second and third book in his library.

We discuss the different options for publishing books, from the print-on-demand model (Amazon model) to traditional publishing. Nathan goes into detail about the pros and cons of each publishing method.

I ask Nathan to detail his company’s service offerings and how people can engage with him and his team. It is incredible how many options are available to those of us who have a story or book within us to get that story out onto the digital and or physical world.

If you have a children’s book, novella, collection of poetry, short story, or novel, I challenge you to get your first draft finished and then start the process of editing and finding the best publishing option that fits your needs. There is a path forward for you with so many options available to aspiring authors.

If you have more questions about publishing, options, and services, please reach out to Nathan and his team. Nathan will give you great advice regardless of whether you move forward with Authorpreneur Central.

If you found this conversation informative and helpful, please share this conversation with a friend. Also, if you have not yet subscribed to the podcast, please like and subscribe to the show on your favorite podcast hosting site.
