Publishing Experts Kristen Eckstein and Faye Levow Team Up for “Candid Conversations”

On one of their normal mastermind calls, Kristen Eckstein and Faye Levow came up with the idea to team together and host free monthly calls for aspiring authors to be a “fly on the wall” and listen in as they share tips, brainstorms, ideas they’ve gathered in their travels and brainstorms. To stay structured, each call has a theme, though they do plan to veer off topic. Live audience members will have the chance to ask specific questions regarding that month’s topic.

Eckstein and Levow started a private Facebook group where they promote the upcoming calls, Candid Conversations On Everything Books.

Topics planned to be discussed include:

How a Book Brings You More Credibility, Income, and Time to Do the Thinks You Love

Other than the outlined topics, the calls’ content will be completely “off the cuff” and unplanned.

“We want to keep it informal, and allow anyone to feel like a true ‘fly on the wall’ as they listen to our mastermind sessions.” said Eckstein, “Opening it up for general Q&A also gets us super excited, as we both love to help aspiring authors achieve their dreams of being successfully published.”

The “Candid Conversations” website is updated regularly with upcoming dates and the call-in topic.
