One of the key takeaways from our conversation was Morgan’s emphasis on storytelling. She highlighted how incorporating personal stories into your book can elevate it to a new level.

Morgan breaks it down for us, explaining that aiming for around 30,000 words is a good starting point. But hey, if you have more to say, don’t hold back!

Once you’ve nailed down your direction and content, you can develop a title that perfectly encapsulates your book’s essence. Oh, and here’s a pro tip: make sure your title is synonymous with your name, making it easy for readers to remember and associate with you.

Morgan dishes out some killer advice on getting reviews for your book. From lead magnets to follow-up emails, she lays out a foolproof plan for generating those all-important reviews on platforms like Amazon.
