The Mindful Writer

How to Succeed and Find Joy in this writing life with author Lizzie Chantree

Interview by Deborah KleePodcast link click here

Each week I chat with a guest exploring the psychological, emotional, and spiritual journey they have experienced as a writer, the lessons they have learnt – and are continuing to learn.

As I talk to other writer’s and reflect on my own experience, I hope to discover how we might find abundance in our creative pursuits, achieving our goals the mindful way.

Lizzie Chantree is a best-selling author of uplifting romantic reads and Networking for Writers. In this episode Lizzie explains:

·      How to develop a positive mindset

·      How to make good use of the resources and networks available to us

·      How to build our readership, reader by reader

·      How to be a kind and compassionate manager (to ourselves).

The Woman Who Felt Invisible by @Lizzie_Chantree #NewRelease

There are some people who you know, without a second glance, that you are going to be happy to help, and one of those, for me, in Lizzie Chantree.

Now, we haven’t met IRL, but have been social media compadres for a good couple of years, and I have read a few of her books, including her non-fiction, Networking For Writers. I’ve also been a member of her Facebook writing group, where she is a constant source of motivation.

Now, our busy Lizzie has got a new release out… on November 23rd, and it sounds like it will be a wonderful read!

Fiona Jenkins.  Inspired by my PMDD Blog. 

Name a time where you felt Invisible!
I had a time when my children were growing up and I felt a bit lost about my role in the world. I do feel that society sometimes overlooks the skill and wisdom of older people and they assume that once we hit a certain age, that we don’t need excitement and challenges in life. I feel the opposite is true. I like to learn new things every day and push myself out of my comfort zones, even when people ask me why I don’t just do things that are less stressful. I don’t enjoy stress, but I do jump into new life experiences all of the time, to grow as a person.

‘Oh, Lizzie!! You have done it again! I had such a lump in my throat by the end of the book it was unreal. I knew to expect something like that when I read this book as it is the way but I had to grab a glass of water this time!! This is such a lovely story of love, loss and growth.’

I am excited to be handing my blog over to the wonderfully talented Lizzie Chantree, today, to let you know about her new release!

My rating:  5 out of 5 stars!

Shh… Can I tell you a secret?
I finished this in a day!
I have read several of Lizzie Chantree’s books already, she is an extremely versatile author, and this book is another little gem in her book jewels.
Violet loves to sing. She has since she was young, but the joy of singing ends when her parents pass away.
Since then, she’s hidden her talent, singing in secret, and succumbed to an awful relationship. The only silver lining in the cloud that is her life is the cafe she works at, and the family she has built from her regular customers.
Life takes a huge turn when music producer Kai walks into the cafe and hears her voice.
All in all, an enjoyable read, quick and easy, and the happy ending we all want!’

Thoughts by Mello-Ello blog. Book Launch post. The little ice cream shop by the sea.

Quote: ‘There are few contemporary romance writers that I enjoy as much as Lizzie Chantree. Her books are fun, uplifting and carry realistic characters that any reader can relate to within a setting that feels familiar and welcomes you in with open arms. Her style of writing fits the modern reader with its twists and suspense that keep us guessing whether the protagonist will end up with his or her love interest and live happily ever after.’

 Lizzie Chantree wanted to have a creative career when she was a child. She really enjoyed writing and wrote lots of short stories. Her first job was in a design agency. She has been on television and radio and invited to the houses of Parliament. She works a lot of hours and tries to fit in as much writing as she can. Her author dream is to have all her books as bestsellers, which she is thrilled and amazed to say has happened so far.
