The BookWorthy Show
Summary: Welcome to The BookWorthy Show. Every week we bring inspiring interviews from incredible self-published authors just like you. My name is Simon Villeneuve and I will be your host. Whether you know it or not, your story is worth publishing. That’s why it’s our goal to help aspiring authors, storytellers, and entrepreneurs just like you learn how to write and publish a physical book that people will want to buy, they’ll want to read, and they’ll truly want to share. It’s great to have you with us, let’s get started.
You’ve probably heard it said, “it’s impossible to make a living as a writer.” Or, “your poetry book won’t pay the bills.” Unfortunately, too many parents, teachers, and mentors encourage the young, aspiring authors around them to go to college and “get a real job” instead of pursuing their dream. That’s why there are millions of talented writers who simply hide in the woodwork, dreaming about the day they’ll get to write for a living. But S.D. Smith says that if you want it, you just have to “swing for the fences.” And if he can do it, so can you. After listening to this interview, you’ll be inspired to quit dreaming and take the next step on your journey to making a living as a writer.
