A multitude of studies show that gratitude is essential for both physical and mental health.In this short holiday episode, Kathryn is going to share some of what she has learned in her five decades, and how we as writers can specifically apply that knowledge to improve our productivity and creativity.

Authors often cite “creative freedom” and “increased control” when asked why they choose to self-publish. But then they often don’t realize there are other options besides Kindle Direct Publishing, don’t know how to access those options, or they simply get cold feet when it comes to publishing wide.If this describes you, then this episode is here to help. One of the best parts of publishing wide is being able to reach the largest possible international audience with your books.Kathryn connected with her friend, Clarissa Gosling, to discuss the whys and wherefores of publishing wide. About Our Guest:Clarissa Gosling has always lived more in the world of daydream and fiction than in reality. In her writing she explores purpose and belonging across worlds. Having never found an actual portal to fairyland, she creates her own fantastical worlds where dragons, fae and other magical creatures rule. She now lives in the Netherlands with her family, where she writes as much as they will let her. Clarissa is the author of the Dragons of Kaitstud' and Lost Princess of Starlight YA fantasy series, and the Expat Life series of non-fiction guides for families moving, and living, abroad. She is an admin for the 365 Writing Challenge, an international group that supports people to build the habit of writing. And she is one of the co-hosts of the Reading Queens podcast, which discusses young adult fantasy books and their major tropes. Find out more about Clarissa at clarissagosling.com, or connect with her on Instagram and TikTok.Topics Discussed in the Episode See the tab above, “Chapter Markers,” for a list of Topics & Timestamps. Resources mentioned in this episode: Authorpreneurs Unleashed is listener-supported.
