In This Episode
“I went into a [yearlong] spiral trying to rewrite this thing.”
Writing a “book, book” is not for the faint of heart.
As writers with lists, we wake up, think of something worthy of sharing, do our best to make it valuable and entertaining, and ship it an hour or two later.
Laura Belgray is one of the very best in the world at this. Her weekly emails are always raw, insightful, and hilarious.
As a result, she has one of the most loyal (and lucrative) readerships in the game.
So, why put herself through the long, grueling process of pitching, selling, and ultimately, delivering a book to a major publisher?
Especially when it’s still on her to sell the damn thing? (Most publishers are notoriously lousy at promoting their authors’ books.)
For Laura, the answer is simple: “The New York Times best-seller list is a longshot – but I want it.”
In this raucous episode, Laura walks us through the process, exposing the thrilling (and often ridiculous), ride of creating her brilliant memoir, Tough Titties – from concept to release date.
Tough Titties: On Living Your Best Life When You’re The F-ing Worst is available on Amazon and (just about) everywhere else you buy books TODAY!
Needless to say, the book is incredible, and, I think, the best “book club” book you’ll ever experience. I pre-ordered 5 copies after reading a private review digital copy.
If you want to help Laura reach the best-seller lists, go buy a copy on Amazon and be sure to leave a review.
Warning, contains hilarity, please use caution while driving or drinking hot liquids.
