Season 3 Ep. 23 - Spiritual Breakthrough - Finding Freedom in Christ w/ Guest Barb Roose
Coffee and Bible Time's Podcast
For some, Christianity is a long list of rules to be followed, and it’s hard to be a “good Christian” because it always seems you’re breaking one of those rules. In Breakthrough: Finding Freedom in Christ, popular women’s conference speaker, and author Barb Roose desires to help readers let go of the feeling they are not a “good enough” Christian and find freedom in Christ by studying Paul’s letter to the Galatians.

57 – How to Land a Literary Agent, With Barb Roose
The Professional Writer
A literary agent helps hopeful and established authors achieve their publishing goals. But finding an agent who’s a great fit can be a formidable task. Barb Roose, an agent with Books & Such Literary Management, unpacks three important factors that will speed an author’s goal of receiving a “yes” from an agent: A wow concept Compelling writing A strong platform (A transcript is at the bottom of the page) WOW concept Massive Action Step: Look at your wow idea and ask yourself: “How does my wow concept demonstrate a fresh twist?” Then develop a 3-sentence hook based on your wow concept. Compelling writing Massive Action Step: Answer these questions: What is my reader’s felt need? What is my reader crying about? What is my reader praying about? What is in my reader’s Amazon shopping cart? Strong platform Barb defines platform as “the audience that’s connected with you over your message.” Platform is “not a wall that keeps authors out of traditional publishing,” she adds. Rather, it’s “a protection of an author’s dream.” Massive Action Step: Do Barb’s “red light, yellow light, green light” exercise to assess where you are now, in terms of platform building. Use the same method to assess your wow concept and to evaluate how compelling your writing is. Three ways to build a platform: 1. Buy Investing money to create products that will help you connect with your audience, such as producing online courses and virtual summits, and selling tangible and/or digital products. 2. Build Expanding your audience through everyday efforts, such as building your email list, blogging, podcasting, video, social media posting and engagement, running Facebook and Instagram ads. 3. Borrow Aligning yourself with a much larger, more influential platform that will send their audience to your online home (aka, your website and email list). This includes writing for online magazines and/or online devotionals, speaking/presenting at virtual summits, guesting on popular podcasts whose message aligns with yours, advertising on bookbub.com). Which should I prioritize? Buy, Build, or Borrow? Barb suggests asking this question: Is this audience (that I am buying/building/borrowing) engaged enough to support me when it’s time for my book launch? Building a platform can feel overwhelming, even for experienced, multi-published authors. Barb encourages us with these words: “Do all that you can, but not more than you should.” About Barb Roose Barb is a literary agent with Book & Such Literary Management, representing non-fiction and adult fiction.
