We talk all about what it is like to go from a dream to published and all the things in between.
A few months ago, I asked the Real Talk Tribe community if anyone was dreaming of or thinking about writing a book.

I was blown away by how many people commented. Apparently, LOTS of you have been thinking about writing a book!

Of course I asked my friend Caris Trawick Snider, author of Anxiety Elephants and Anxiety Elephants for Tweens to join me for a live interview. 
Some questions we answered in the video above: 

Did you grow your email list before or after the book and how did you decide what to offer to grow your list?

Do you have to have a large audience before a publisher will sign you? 

Should you self-publish, get a distributor or sign with a publishing company? 

What's the first step necessary when you decided to write a book? 

How do you determine the goal for the number of books you want to sell? 

Do you need a launch team when it comes to selling your book? If so, what do you do with a launch team? How many people should you have on your launch team?

Should you do an ebook, booklet, or print your book yourself and mail them? 

How did you set up the tech in order to sell your book when you first started out? 

Do you need an agent to write a book? If so, how much do those cost? 
If you want to print the books yourself, where do you get them printed? 

Is there a large investment necessary up front? If so, can you share more of those details.
How do you know when you are ready to write another book or move to a different writing level? 

How do you know if your idea is good enough to get a book? 

What are writing conferences like? When should you attend a writing conference? 

What do you wish you knew before you started the writing process? 

What's some of the biggest pieces to having a successful launch of a book as a new writer?
