In this episode of the Thriving Authors Podcast, it was such a delight to talk with Cambria Williams about her debut novel, THE BEFALLEN, and her writing journey. 

If you are working on a novel of your own and maybe you are in the querying trenches or maybe you're in the muddy middle of your book, I think you will find Cambria's story inspiring and filled with hope to remind you to keep going.

She shares:

  • What got her into writing in the first place.
  • How a text about writing a practice novel gave her momentum and allowed the words to just pour out of her.
  • The reason she changed her novel from a single point of view to featuring two different perspectives.
  • The rewards that can come from being okay with the word no.
