Literary Escapes Podcast interview with author Emily Bleeker

Ep 90: Author Interview with Emily Bleeker

Today’s episode features the incredible Emily Bleeker, an award-winning, best-selling author. She shares her journey from hesitant writer to publishing success and gives us a sneak peek into her upcoming book release. We delved into her writing journey, upcoming book, and the transformative power of literature.

Emily’s honest discussion about introverted authors marketing their own books struck a chord. Many writers can relate to the challenges of self-promotion and social media engagement. It’s a journey we’re all navigating.
