Writing Sensitive Topics

So you have a memoir, a tell-all saga, or a topic that might make common folk uncomfortable, but will help those in the same tragic situations. My guest, Shelley Beach has survived what most would consider a very hard life, but by the grace of God she can talk about it, bring in humor and share her success as an author.

There is a fine line in writing this type of a book. The line is crossed when the work turns into a dark-self purging memoir that won't pass the desk of the junior editorial assistant.  Drawing from your experiences can bring pain in the process but if it is written with a joyful conclusion, or at least one where life lessons are learned and shared, the piece can become compelling.

So, it is not surprising that Shelley's latest book is, "Silent Seduction Self-Talk" Conforming Deadly Thought Patterns to the Word of God, provides tools for dealing with inner conflicts. Who better to write such a book?

I'm looking forward to the interview and hope you will join us.

BTW if any of you need a great editor, Bethany LeBedz caught my misspelling of the word sensitive and kindly emailed and pointed it out! Email me for her contact info!
