Frequently-Asked Questions

You’ll find answers to your most frequently-asked questions about book endorsements, getting started writing and speaking, media interviews, and speaking events below.

Endorsing someone’s book is such an honor, and I wish I had the time to read every book that I receive from authors asking for my endorsement or my promotion on social media. Since I am currently averaging over a dozen endorsement and promotion requests per month, there is simply no way I can say yes to them all. Bummer, I know.

Before even considering possibly writing an endorsement or recommending a book on social media, I  read the manuscript in its entirety and think and pray through the endorsement/recommendation before writing it. This process takes about 15-20 hours of time. Living out my priorities as a wife, mother and mother-in-law, daughter of aging parents, and a full-time writer and speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries, leaves me very little margin in my schedule to devote to this.

We are not accepting guest blog posts or paid advertisements at this time.

I love helping writers and speakers! However, again, it takes time.  So, to help others in their writing and speaking, rather than mentor one-on-one, I teach and mentor through our Proverbs 31 Ministries COMPEL Training membership site (for writers) and at our Proverbs 31 Ministries She Speaks conferences for writers, speakers, bloggers, and leaders. Of course, on rare occasion, I do mentor aspiring writers and speakers with whom I am close person friends in real life. For all others, I teach and mentor at the two places below:
