Interview With Inspirational Author Linda A Olson

 


  1. What really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book?

I had trained in this area through workshops, seminars, and Bible Studies for several years. While attending a 3-day Writer’s conference, I recognized how many more people I could reach which inspired me to put my material into a book. My God-given mission is: To Impact A Million people a year through story. This is one avenue.

 

  1. What is it about and whom do you believe is your targeted reader?

My target reader is Kingdom Entrepreneurs & mission-driven people; anyone who wants to personally grow to impact many more people.

Love Your Story gives you everything you need; tools, strategies and practical tips to address the area where your greatest power lies: knowing your identity in Christ. You will discover: A simple pathway to your true identity, who you are in Christ, How true champions are created, Strengths you didn’t even know you had, The favor on your life, Practical tools to rise above every challenge and soar and much more.

  1. What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book? What should remain with them long after putting it down?

No matter what you face, you can be an overcomer if you remember who you are in Christ. It is why the Angel Gabriel told Mary, “You are highly favored by God” before He shared his purpose for coming to visit her.

 

  1. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers? I encourage you to invest most of your time, energy and money into enhancing your message which is your story as opposed to perfecting your writing skills. You can hire someone to enhance your story skills but no one can tell your story like you can.

 

  1. What trends in the book world do you see and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?

Self-publishing has clearly taken over the book industry and it will continue. With the competition continually on the rise, and people’s time being so limited, the trend is shorter books, & higher quality to get the attention your book deserves. Less is More.

 

  1. What challenges did you overcome to write your book?

I needed to be confident this was something God wanted to write as opposed to my own ego getting in the way and secondly if this was a message He wanted me to communicate through a book that my faith to provide the financial investment had to bigger than my fear.

  1. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?

This book will give you the simple tools to lay the foundation for everything you do in life. Once you allow God to define your story, what was seemingly impossible will become possible and you will impact more people than you ever imagined. It is definitely a must purchase!
