Just for fun, this week on the podcast to celebrate the launch of Love-Centered Parenting, we turn the tables and Jesse hosts the show and interviews me about why I wrote another book when I never thought I would, a real behind-the-scenes look at how I wrote this book, what the editorial process is like for writing a book, plus much more!
He asks me some of his own questions + questions you all submitted, including:
- Did I plan to write another book? (Spoiler alert: the answer is no!)
- How was the writing process of this book compared to my other books?
- What was the most difficult part of writing Love-Centered Parenting?
- What are the best and worst aspects of writing a book?
- How do you find inspiration for what to write about?
- Could a non-Christian benefit from Love-Centered Parenting?
- How do you get started writing a book?
- And more!
