#22: On Writing & Rejection, A She Is Fierce! Talk with Brenda Jackson, Bestselling Romance Novelist

< back to blog home



If you’ve ever been told ‘NO’… you will appreciate today’s podcast.


If you’re an aspiring writer… you will appreciate today’s podcast.


If you love an underdog story or a story of someone who follows their heart… you will appreciate today’s podcast.


Brenda Jackson is the bestselling-est African American romance novelist, and the first African-American romance author to make the NY Times and USA Today Bestseller lists. 


She has published more than 100 novels and novellas and has more than 10 MILLION books in print.


She was a 2012 NAACP Image Award Nominee and has received numerous awards, like the Romance Writers of America’s Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award, the Mary McLeod Bethune Community Service Award, the Pioneer Award in Writing from Romantic Times Magazine among many others…    


Her talk and the Question and Answer Session afterwards will teach you a little about the publishing industry and get you thinking about what YOU want to write…  


and if you’re not a writer, it will inspire you think beyond boundaries and NEVER accept a ‘NO’ or assume that you’re not ‘enough’ just because someone else says you are.


Brenda’s talk always sticks out in my mind as one of the most inspiring to me personally, and I hope it will be for you too!
