I’d like to welcome Linda James to my blog. She’s the author of non-fiction / self help / mind, body and spirit book “Seachange @ Work”.
Have you been writing for a long time?
I have been writing courses and workshops since 2001.
What inspired you to start a writing career?
I wanted to share my concepts and ideas with more people, and the best way to do that was write a book.
Is Seachange @ Work your first book? If not, please tell us a little about your first book.
Yes, Seachange @ Work is my first book. However I hope it is the first of many more to come.
Why did you choose to write non-fiction?
It was important for me to share my knowledge and help people in the workplace who were willing to take responsibility for their lives and create a more energised and supportive workplace for themselves and their colleagues.
However, I have some ideas for a humourous fiction book and a spiritual fiction book which I am looking forward to starting.
Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
Really think about what you want to convey in your book. Build a good structure around each chapter before you start writing the content, then you achieve a good flow and it is much easier.
Do you have any works in progress you’d like to tell us about?
I am re-writing one of my courses on passion and purpose which I hope to publish later this year, and a book on intuition.
