With all the books that have been published in the world, sometimes it's easy to forget that behind the writing of each book there is a story of an author who has to overcome her or his personal struggles to make it to the finish line. For Peace Amadi, despite years of experience with both writing and academia, the book publishing process triggered emotions and insecurities that she wasn't expecting and had to address alongside her writing process. You'll appreciate Peace's honesty and willingness to share about the emotional challenges of the publishing journey that is often hidden from public view, and also you'll learn how her heritage as a Nigerian American had an impact on that process.
