About the Podcast

Writing Expensive Words
When Stories Have Soul
The big question every writer has is: How can I sell more books? Or, if they’re not published yet, it’s how can I write books that sell? But when writers approach selling books from a numbers perspective, they’re missing out on the amazing relationships they could be building with readers through their stories. It’s impossible to write books that resonate with readers when you’re writing for money, because money can’t read. But shouldn’t writers be able to make a living with their stories? Well, when you connect with human souls, readers turn into fans and friends, and that’s when consistent income begins. That and so much more. But how do writers connect with readers? That is the question this podcast aims to answer. For more information on the host or upcoming episodes, check out https://expensivewords.com
