Episode #058 Lauren Sams on Building an Author Platform

As the year comes to a close, Vanessa and I decided to check in with a few former guests, who have previously appeared on the show. This week, I catch-up with Lauren Sams, who returns to the podcast to chat about her latest novel, Crazy Busy Guilty (out early 2017).

Lauren first appeared on the show in episode #024 to talk about her debut novel, She's Having Her Baby and the process of writing the sequel. Now that sequel is set to hit shelves and I wanted to find out what Lauren has discovered since publishing her first novel, including how she has built her author platform.

During the episode, Vanessa and I also share what's on the top of the summer holiday reading pile and Vanessa gears up to hold her debut novel, The Florentine Bridge, in her hands for the first time!
