Write a book they said, but what they do not tell you is how to go about doing it. Writing a book is not for the weak. A lot of authors discover the intricacies of the writing process while they are in it. If God is leading you to write a book, this is a good place to be. Jevon dives into the process here.

With two decades of experience in the publishing industry, Jevon Bolden leads Embolden Media Group, a literary agency and publishing consulting firm that helps authors and publishers reach diverse and global audiences with quality content. Jevon has authored eight books, ghostwritten and edited hundreds of titles, and acquired well-platformed authors for placement with traditional publishers.

As a conference speaker, workshop facilitator, writing coach, and mentor, Jevon shares the best of what she knows with passionate, creative, and influential people who desire to publish great books that make a difference.

  • Jevon's journey of becoming a book editor
