The Writers’ Co-op S2 EP10: Cait Flanders
If there’s one topic we’ve been skeptical about this season, it’s book publishing. Can you publish a book as a freelancer and still make a living? What do the finances look like? How does the process work? Our last regular-season episode of season 2 answers all of these questions.
We searched long and hard for a guest who would be forthcoming about the book publishing process, and that person is Cait Flanders. She’s an author, podcaster and traveler who lives in Canada. She started her career working in the personal finance space, and has since authored two books: The Year of Less and Adventures in Opting Out. Cait talks to Jenni about publishing a book in a pandemic (weird), how much she makes (six figures) and why you might want to write a book in the first place (hint: not for the money).
This week, Patreon subscribers get access to several awesome resources from Cait, including a roadmap to book publishing, tips for creating a book proposal, and a journaling exercise to help you decide if you’re ready to pause the hustle and lean into a big project.
