Laurel Senick, Author of Foam: Self-Publishing and the Business of Writing a Book

It’s not every day we get to talk about writing, surfing, and the journey of self publishing a book. But today, we’re doing just that with the multi-talented author, Laurel Senick.

With her first novel ‘Foam’ and her upcoming novel ‘Luminescent’, Laurel takes us on her journey from the writing desk to self publishing. She shares the challenges of wearing multiple hats as a writer, marketer, and businesswoman – and how she manages to balance them all. Dare to dream about your own writing career or creative passions as we further explore Laurel’s creative process, her writing community, and surf retreats in Puerto Rico.

Laurel shares her experience navigating the stormy seas of publishing, taking the naysayers opinions with a grain of salt, and powering through obstacles. Laurel’s story is not just about publishing a book, it’s about believing in her projects and staying focused.
