20 - How to be a children’s book author with award winning author, Kimberly Glyn Zweiger
In this Episode We Talk About: Kim shares the powerful story of the miracle of her son’s birth and how she was able to use the adventures of her son’s life to begin to write children’s books.
Her experience in writing children’s books was divine inspired and totally a God thing. This unexpected “calling” for her to be an author wasn’t expected and definitely inconvenient, but she took the opportunity and ran with it!
Kim gets really detailed into the step by step process of what it takes to publish a children’s book, marketing the book, funding the campaigns, and getting out into the public.
She also so generously offered being a source for someone that has questions about writing a children’s book...she is happy to help!

Kimberly says she was given a gift by God literally overnight when she was awakened at 3:00 am one night with the ability and desire to write children's books, she uses the pen name Kimberly Glyn. Her first published book received 2nd place in the 2016 Idaho Author Awards and is titled “A Skunk Named Perfume”.
