We all have a book inside of us (a lot of us have more than one) but sometimes those stories can be buried deep. Three authors - Mary Turner Thomson, Sue Cohen and Lea Taylor - created The Book Whisperers to entice those trapped stories into the world. By recognising potential authors motives, needs and desires, The Book Whisperers aim to provide writers with confidence, knowledge, contacts and support to start and keep writing as well as to publish and market their books.
And if we can have fun along the way all the better!
All three presenters are successful authors and publishers with a wealth of experience within the book industry - from traditional publishing to self-publishing.
Not My Finest Hour - Old T**s and Tupperware
The Book Whisperers discuss the benefits and pitfalls of Tupperware and throw in the odd tit in the process. There may be a few writing tips, and certainly a performance of comedy poetry etc, and indubitably a lot of giggles from all quarters.
Not My Finest Hour - Mince Pies In The Cakehole
The Book Whisperers are BACK with a Christmas special to launch our new series of podcasts, called 'Not My Finest Hour'. This month we are talking to Santa himself and trying to work out what means naughty, and what means nice. Funny, inspiring and festive - we look forward to you joining us!
Inspiration and Reconnecting
With the first podcast of 2021 - Susan, Mary and Lea got together with Tom Rannachan - life coach, personal trainer and all around good egg - talking about how to change our lives and get more of what we want in life, We all need to make the best of any situation that we can. A lovely dose of mind/body/spirit balance to help get into the right mindset for the year ahead.
Tom is the author of several books including 'Big Tam's Kilted Wurkoots', published by The Wee Book Company, as well as various other books such as: 'A Haunted History Walk: Edinburgh Old Town' and 'The Language of the Afterlife'.
Writing as Therapy
# Writing as Therapy
Reading and writing have been proven to have immense therapeutic properties. Until we started talking about it we didn't realise how much this had come into our lives. Each of us have used writing as a therapy without our own lives as well as running courses with children and adults on writing themselves out of a crisis or using writing to promote self-esteem and self-confidence.
We hope you enjoy listening to our bookish antics as much as we enjoyed making it.
What makes a good gift book and how can you make a book more giftable? With Christmas coming around the corner The Book Whisperers discuss giving and receiving books, as well as creating products in the gift book market. Lots of hints and tips with regards to adding value to your existing book, and thinking about additional books you can write.
Making Time to Write
Being writers we are very creative people - which can be a challenge when it comes to the more practical side of our work - and specifically time management. How easy is it to stop multi-tasking and focus on what is important, to prioritise and schedule in work when all you want to do is sit down in a quiet corner and pen some stories. We all have a finite amount of energy to give towards the things we do, so how do we get the best out of the time we have?
With whisperings, questions, and shared writing.
