In this episode we talk with James L. Rubart about his story of overcoming rejection and self doubt.

James L. Rubart is 28 years old, but lives trapped inside an older man’s body. He thinks he’s still young enough to water ski like a madman and dirt bike with his two grown sons. He’s the best-selling, Christy BOOK of the YEAR, CAROL, INSPY and RT Book Reviews award winning author of ten novels and loves to send readers on journeys they’ll remember months after they finish his stories. He’s also a branding expert, co-host of the Novel Marketing podcast, and co-founder with his son, Taylor, of The Rubart Writing Academy. He lives with his amazing wife on a small lake in Washington state. More at
