Let’s Talk About Your Book!

Your words have power. Your story matters.

Writing: it is how we share stories and knowledge, exchange life lessons and wisdom, express our emotions, and tell the tales of our wins and losses.

We are the storytellers, wayshowers, and guides who thrive on helping others on their journey. This is what we do. It is our true essences. And, someone is waiting to hear your voice.

Our podcast conversation will influence writers who are:
  • writing a book, blog posts, magazine articles, collaboration stories.
  • trying to figure out how to get their magazine article accepted,
  • trying like hell to stay motivated…and write!
  • learning how to hone their writing and editing skills,
  • at the point of deciding whether to self-publish or pitch to a publishing company,
  • seeking practical ways to market their written works of art that work,
  • earning a living as a writer,
  • eager to have a better understanding of the process, and more.
Each podcast episode provides the readers, our non-writing audience members, with:
  • the backstory to your book (or role as an editor/publisher),
  • the ability hear your story in your words,
  • your writing process,
  • what inspired you to write the book, and more.

They are curious to know you, hear your voice, and what inspired you to write the book (or provide editing/publishing services).

– CK Kochis

“I am grateful for the opportunity to share my writing process for both my books with Cindy at @pentopaperpress

Life Reboot is part memoir, part self-guided coaching manual. Guided by Love is an emotional memoir about love, life and death and how my spirituality got me through the darkest times in my life. The process was very different for each book.

This was the first time I was able to talk publicly about my miscarriage and while it was extremely difficult, I am blessed to have Cindy on my side, as she is such a supportive soul. ❤”
