Love It!

Eliza and Adrienne are just terrific! The hope and humor that they provide to wanna-a-be authors is inspiring. Each podcast is filled with great information and valuable insight that assists me in my writing journey. Each week I look forward to more words of wisdom and I appreciate the honest words of when failure occurs too. It’s just an all around great show that keeps me moving forward in my journey.

My Favorite Podcast

How doesn't this podcast have way more reviews?! This is my absolute favorite podcast to listen to on my long walk to the train station every afternoon. I actually look forward to the trek, come rain or shine, because it's my chance to kick back and "hang out" with Eliza Peake and Adrienne Bell. (And, believe me, it takes A LOT to make me want to go outside into the miserable weather we have here in Scotland!) I'm always interested in their topic-of-the-week and find their issues to be super-relatable. They're also motivating AF, and I'm looking forward to writing hella-words in 2020! Keep on writing! I can't wait to read what you're publishing next!
