It's amazing to hear the behind the scenes to top selling books and the change in the publishing industry. It's enough to make you want to avoid traditional publishing completely! You'd think a best selling author would have it easy. However, Catherine hit top, then bottom then top again. Most importantly, she encouraged us to have a focused attitude to continue forward and adapt regardless of the roadblocks life or business throw at us. I just hope this small mention of my fun afternoon with Catherine reminds us to Pay it Forward. It's a wonderful thing.
