'Scuse me, I'd like to talk things through before making a commtment.
Of course, I totally understand.
Just drop me a line, tell me a little aout yourself, the type of book you're thinking writing and why, and if I think you & I would be a good fit, I'll send you a link to my diary to book a free 30 minute Published Author Disvovery call where you can ask me all your questions and concerns and we can work out the best options for you.
And if I think you're not a good fit for us, then I'll be honest and tell you and I'll do my very best to point you in the right direction to help you move forward with your plans.
That's fair, isn't it?
Published Author Podcast
Welcome to our video series of recorded LIVE interviews where I get to know recently Published Authors and ask them important questions like:
- 'What inspired you to write a book?'
- 'What doubts did you have? And how did you overcome them?'
- 'How long did it take you?'
- 'How did you find the time to write?'
- 'Did you get STUCK anywhere in the process and if so, how did you get 'UNSTUCK?'
- 'How did you choose your route to publishing?'
- 'What have you learnt about yourself and your business in the process?'
- And 'what's changed for you now your book is out there in the world?'
- 'Was it worth it?' And 'If you had your time over, would you do anything differently?'
And of course, I get as many tips and nuggets of wisdom from them as I possibly can
to help you take another step closer to making your Published Author dream a reality for you too!
Susan J Walklate - Wiltshire, UK.
When Susan's son, Simon, was struggling at school and becoming shut down and unwell, it was an obvious step for her to take full responsibility of him, his education and upbringing. It wasn’t necessarily the easiest option, but it was certainly the best option for Simon.
It turned out to be a massive learning curve for Susan as it enabled her to step back from the treadmill of the expected norm and become aware of the metaphors and influences of our society. She realised that children learnt organically, principally when they are happy, interested and engaged and that Home Education doesn't always mean staying at home and certainly doesn't mean being isolated or alone.
Simon is now a grown young man, with his own business. He's a happy, fully functioning, contributing member of society and he and Susan are still friends with many of the other Home Educating families that they met along the way.
Over time, Susan became determined to tell their stories, the true life stories of the children who were successfully home educated and are now fully functioning adults of society. She wanted to celebrate their own successes and inspire and encourage any family who were thinking of Home Educating or had already decided to take their first steps into the adventure that not only is it a sound and smart choice, but that you could have a lot of fun, personal growth and real connection along the way.
Radical Home Education is Susan's first book. In it, she tells her own and Simon's story, plus 4 other families who she and Simon got to know well during their journey and are still connected to today.
Susan J Walklate is Butterfly House Publishing's first published author. (Congratulations Susan xx)
Her book 'Radical Home Education' is now available on Amazon.
Paperback RRP £14.99
Kindle RRP £6.99
Susan also runs workshops and gives talks on a variety of subjects including Home Education; radical life lessons; learning from horses; and understanding animals.

“What an astonishing thing a book is.
It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted
lots of funny dark squiggles.
But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person,
maybe somebody dead for thousands of years.
Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head,
directly to you.
Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs.
Books break the shackles of time.
A book is a proof that humans are capable of working magic.”
Carl Sagan, on the magic of books
