Will The Real Person Please Stand Up? Celebration Tour

Author Interview

  1. Who most influenced your writing?The other members of my Word Weavers International writing group. Our personal interaction, critique groups, and honest advice for my own submissions have helped me make huge progress on the craft of writing.
  2. What was the best advice you received about writing?You don’t need to implement everything you learn at a writers’ conference or workshop. Consider what two next things you would like to focus on and let the other things go.
  3. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?Choose to take risks more frequently. I’ve made a lot of progress in saying yes, even without assurance of succeeding, but I want to keep traveling on that new track.
  4. Where do you do most of your writing?At my dining room table, which overlooks my inviting screened-in porch and my backyard with refreshing green grass, majestic trees, and colored flowers. It’s easy to raise my head and find refreshment for my mind whenever I need it.
  5. What's currently in your To Be Read pile?
    Sam’s Letters to Jennifer – James PattersonThe God I Thought I knew – Robert Morris
    Uninvited – Lysa Terkeurst

About the Book

Book:  Will the Real Person Please Stand Up?
Author: Gail Porter
Genre:  Non-Fiction/Personal Growth
Release Date: Oct 1, 2018
Does fear of rejection hold you back from letting people see the real you? Are you tired of hiding?
Gail Porter lived with this kind of fear during her childhood and most of her adult life. When God revealed her bondage to the power of fear, she was set free to come out of hiding and become who He’d created her to be. What she learned grew into a passion to help others experience the same freedom.
Will the Real Person Please Stand Up? offers much-needed hope to those who long to be set free from the fear of rejection and become their authentic selves. In this life-changing book you will read Gail’s own experiences, stories of real people, and input from those in the medical field. Gail walks you through the process of identifying and acknowledging what holds you captive so you can live in freedom rather than in fear.
With God’s help, you can walk out of your self-made prison, break strongholds, and taste the freedom that will allow you to become who God made you to be. Get ready to stand up and say, “This is the real me.”
“Gail teaches her readers how to embrace the present without encumbrances of the past. With practical, action-based steps, we learn to climb mountains with new determination and anticipate our futures with joy.” Jeanne LeMay, author of Dear God I’m Desperate: Women Have Issues, God Has Answers.

Thank you for posting your interview related to my book, Will the Real Person Please Stand Up! The fear of rejection is universal, and I'm glad I could share my own journey to freedom, as well as stories from many others who have been set free.
