Writers Like You: An Interview with Ericka Andersen

Traditional Publishing

Selling a book idea to a publisher is always hard to do. Selling a memoir - especially in the Christian publishing space right now - is even harder! And yet, Ericka Andersen was able to make it happen with a great idea, the right timing, and a powerful network.

In this week's conversation, Ericka and I talk about:

  • How she got a book deal (for a Christian memoir!) as writer with NO platform
  • The importance of having the right idea at the right time
  • Why including a mega-bestseller on your comp list isn't a bad idea!
  • You're not doomed if your first book doesn't sell as well as you hoped
