Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing.
My name is Sarah. I’m a vegan, travel and spiritual lifestyle blogger who focuses on all topics towards a happy & healthy life.
Early on I discovered my passion for health, well-being and getting to know my own body.
Yet for the longest time I didn’t know which career path I should take, and how my future should look like – there were just sooo many options 🙂
I eventually decided to follow my intuition and excitement; and so I started to create my own individual career. I began by travelling to India to become a certified yoga teacher. In India it became very clear that this is the path I want to walk on further – I became a student of an online school that trains certified health coaches.
I never thought I would ever write or even publish my own book; but you never know what happens next 🙂 Even though I never thought of really publishing anything, I have always loved to write, and express myself through words out on paper. Then one day I woke up and thought: If so many others can do it, why can’t I? And so I sat down and began to write. I’m sure this first book won’t be my last.
Tell us about your books.
I called my latest (and first) book “The Veganning”.
I am a firm believer that we should never stop learning and exploring – no matter what kind of teacher we choose, there will always be something we didn’t know or didn’t see before.
In 2015 I had such an eye opening experience and I started to wonder why people are vegan. Everything I found during my researches shocked and fascinated me at the same time. There is so much that is not talked about – and so much of it is incredibly important information – that I devoted myself to help spread that message out into the world.
The Veganning is only the beginning…
How did you go about getting published?
I decided to try the self-publishing route. It is an always very exciting and extremely incredible feeling of getting your own work out there!
What is your writing process? Do you have a time, day or place you like to write?
I would say that my creative side is switched on once the sun settles. When it is dark outside, and people usually go to bed; that’s the time when words just flow out of me and onto paper.
When I was a student and had to do my homework I could never focus with any noises in the background. However, now I am super inspired by loud music – it seems as words scream into my ears they more easily flow out of my hands 🙂
What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Full-time job, pets, hobbies?
I love to travel the world. In my opinion travelling is the greatest teacher that exists. There is so much we haven’t seen or heard of, so many places to discover, so much to learn about yourself and so many cultures that are worth getting to know!
I also love to work on my blog, take pictures and listen to some great music!
Any advice for authors about book covers?
This should be a really fun part. I loved getting creative and exploring around. I would say: don’t try to copy anything or anybody, tune into yourself and find out what it really is that would represent your book the best, and just let it flow!
Any marketing tips you’d like to share with other authors?
I hope I won’t disappoint anyone with this answer, but I myself are only starting out and getting to know all the little tricks and ways to get out there. I love to research and learn new ways, try them out and see myself if there are any results or not. So far I can say, social media is an amazing way!!
What’s your favorite book?
It would either be “The Alchimist” or “Eat, Pray, Love”
What are you reading now?
I’m currently reading “The Universe has your back” by Gabrielle Bernstein
What’s your next book project?
I’m currently working on my online space over at yettoreveal.com
I created it a few years ago, yet I never was fully behind it and liked how it represented myself. I’m currently trying my best to make it my second skin – something that is really me.
Yet I have about 1 million further ideas and projects that I’m excited to get into.
