In this episode we are going to have a special crossover episode with my new podcast. As some of you know, I’ve launched a new podcast called the Christian Publishing Show. This podcast explores everything about publishing in the Christian market.

One of my guests on that podcast was our very own James L. Rubart. As we did that interview I realized we have never shared his story on this podcast. So if you have ever wanted to know where Jim came from here is his origin story. Stick around, after the interview Jim and I will come back on this show.

Chances are you are friends with other writers but have you heard their stories? Ask them sometime you may be surprised at what you learn. Telling each other your stories can inspire, encourage, build a deeper relationships … and often be quite humorous.
