Del Mar -- Wednesday October 5th at 6:30 pm -- Linda Sivertsen reads and discusses "Beautiful Writers: A Journey of Big Dreams and Messy Manuscripts--With Tricks of the Trade from Bestselling Authors"
Join us Wednesday October 5th at 6:30 pm as we welcome Linda Sivertsen to the store to discuss and sign Beautiful Writers: A Journey of Big Dreams and Messy Manuscripts--With Tricks of the Trade from Bestselling Authors. Joining her in conversation will be Arielle Ford.
Imagine you're at a dinner party with some of the most successful authors of our time (Elizabeth Gilbert, Dean Koontz, Terry McMillan, Cheryl Strayed, Deepak Chopra, Tomi Adeyemi...). "Book Mama" and Beautiful Writers Podcast co-creator Linda Sivertsen is the host. As she's sharing her story of the many hilarious, outrageous, and practical things she did to launch her bestselling writing career, your favorite writers chime in with their own, "Oh my God, listen-to-what-I-did!" details, leaving you nourished and newly inspired.
Filled with heart-centered encouragement, street-smart advice, and accounts of insider success—and failure—this straight-from-the-trenches look at success is a one-of-a-kind writing book that will help you gain the courage to get your book, blog, or biz finally birthed into the world. Part inspirational, part practical, and part writing memoir suspense story, Beautiful Writers is filled with wild twists and mystical turns, just as they happened, and insights into the writing life few authors have the courage—or maybe good sense—to reveal. If you're feeling out of your league or intimidated by what you don't yet know, Linda's coming-of-career dreams, adventures, and misadventures will support you to find—and believe in—your own path while putting the wisdom of the greats in a vivid, relatable context.
Think of this book as a giant permission slip, where the rules are made to be broken, and it doesn't matter if you were teacher's pet in school or bullied for being an airhead, as was Linda. Know what you want and how you prefer to work. Then set yourself up to go from Idea to Done and Sold. Because if you have the ache, you have what it takes.
Linda Sivertsen, “Book Mama,” is in LOVE with books—reading, writing, and selling them. Her titles have won awards and hit all the lists as an author, co-author, and former magazine editor and ghostwriter. But her driving force has been to publish sustainably. Naïve and optimistic enough to believe in magic, she’s on a mission to save forests via her role as a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Ambassador. When she’s not fostering literary love matches on her Beautiful Writers Podcast (a favorite stop for writers on tour) or midwifing books at her Carmel or virtual writing retreats, Linda can be found on the back of a horse or running with her dogs. She and her husband live on their ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Arielle Ford is a leading personality in the personal growth and contemporary spirituality movement. For the past 30 years she has been living, teaching, and promoting consciousness through all forms of media. She's a celebrated love and relationship expert, author of eleven books (including the international bestseller, THE SOULMATE SECRET: Manifest The Love of Your Life With The Law of Attraction and Turn Your Mate Into Your Soulmate: A Practical Guide To Happily Ever After) and speaker. Arielle and Linda have been friends for decades and her writerly wisdom is included in the pages of Beautiful Writers. She and her husband/soulmate, Brian Hilliard and their feline friends live in La Jolla, CA.
