Today’s episode is all about overcoming life’s huge obstacles. Listen in on today’s episode as we chat with Kristen Moeller on how she found her path to Morgan James. Learn about her new book Phoenix Rising: Stories of Remarkable Women Walking Through Fire.

How do you go on after you've lost everything?

Over several terrifying summers, deadly wildfires raged across Colorado. Lives were lost, and the flames destroyed thousands of homes. When the smoke cleared and only rubble remained, survivors were left trying to find a way forward against devastating loss. The aftermath of that destruction would span many years, and its effects are still felt today.

In "Phoenix Rising," twenty women share their stories of fire, the terror they felt as flames engulfed their communities, and the dark desperation that followed. And how---in the ensuing weeks and months---they worked to recreate a life from the ashes. Their tales of fear and bravery, of deep compassion and heart-rending grief, offer an uplifting chronicle of human courage and resilience.

In "Phoenix Rising" written by women united by wildfire, they have the privilege of stepping into those moments to stand in the hallways of their shock and fear, grief and disorientation, and then, armed with the wisdom of retrospection, walking out into whatever comes next.

Speaking of what’s coming next, next we’ll learn what she is up to and how she helps people whose path may not have made it to a traditional publishing deal with her involvement with Persona Publishing, the Morgan James self-publishing path.

Today’s episode is all about your book cover. But to get there you’ll hear our Show facilitator, Jody Maberry, pull out the incredible story of bringing in that passion and enthusiasm of our founder, and host, David Hancock and the why that is the beginning of the best covers.

Covers are the first thing your audience sees. It is as important as the content you share. Your cover must look as good or better than the books to the left and the right of your book on the shelves.  

We all do judge books by the covers. We also have to have an emotional reaction to the cover even before the text of the title is even read. It must be able to do that from even ten feet away! Which is how it looks as a thumbnail on your favorite bookseller’s website.

Help your readers find their right path by helping them find the right emotion with the perfect cover.
