You’ll find answers to your most frequently-asked questions about book endorsements, getting started writing and speaking, media interviews, and speaking events below.
Would you be willing to write an endorsement for my book?
Endorsing someone’s book is such an honor, and I wish I had the time to read every book that I receive from authors asking for my endorsement or my promotion on social media. Since I am currently averaging over a dozen endorsement and promotion requests per month, there is simply no way I can say yes to them all.
Before even considering possibly writing an endorsement or promoting a book, I read the manuscript in its entirety. Living out my priorities as a wife, mother, daughter of aging parents, and a full-time writer and speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries, leaves me very little time to devote to this. I do set aside time on my return flights from my speaking engagements to read manuscripts to decide if I feel led to write an endorsement or promote the book. This means I can only consider a limited number per year. Please note that my policy requires a minimum three-month lead time for endorsements and my schedule is now full through spring of 2019.
Are you accepting guest blog posts or advertisements?
We are not accepting guest blog posts or paid advertisements at this time.
How can I get started writing and speaking? Do you mentor writers and speakers?
I love helping writers and speakers! However, again, it takes time. On rare occasion, I do mentor aspiring writers and speakers with whom I am close person friends in real life. In order to maximize any other time I might have available to help others in their writing and speaking, rather than mentor one-on-one, I teach and mentor through our Proverbs 31 Ministries COMPEL Training membership site (for writers) and at our She Speaks and She Speaks Studio conferences for writers, speakers, bloggers, and leaders.
