Thomas Kies was a journalist for many years and now he is a successful thriller writer. The twist? His main character is a woman!
Three books into the series the books just keep getting better and the Publisher wants a fourth. Yet the journey was not an easy one. Many books were trashed and many books not accepted by agents. Until, one day, a yes.
So what did Thomas have inside that allowed him to persevere all while keeping a day job that often went into the night?
This episode is for everyone who wonders when their day will come or better yet, when the no will turn to yes. It doesn't matter if it is a book you want to write, a business you want to start or something on more of a personal level. We all have a dream whether they are small or large doesn't matter. What matters is how you move through the journey.
Take a listen as Tom shares the question his editor asked that put him on the track to success.
