Our broad for today’s show is actually two broads—sisters, authors, publishers, and longtime friends of mine: Elizabeth Doyle Carey and Carrie Doyle. Between them, they have five sons, and their families make their homes in the Hamptons. Two years ago, they pooled their resources and talents and joined with their partner, Tiffany Palmer, to launch Dunemere Books, an independent book publisher of destination fiction for all ages.
How is Dunemere Books different? As authors, Liz and Carrie were frustrated with the popular slow model of book publishing and the fact that writers give up so much control over their work to a publisher. They wanted their company to stand out and be set apart---and they’ve taken great strides to accomplish those purposes. As writers and publishers, they cater to middle grade and young adult readers, but they have big plans on the horizon! Join us for their amazing story!

At first, Christine had been mulling on setting up her own business but was afraid to leave her day job for fear of losing her income. Yet she kept thinking about doing what she was passionate about. She even prayed to get laid off just to have a reason to leave. She was not laid off. Something made her finally resign from her job. After she did, she asked herself: Why didn’t I do it sooner?
The deep grief of losing her daughter was, later on, transformed into positive creativity. She moved forward with a passionate determination to keep pursuing her dreams. Today Christine owns several businesses and helps other businesses get to the top and entrepreneurs to grow and evolve toward what they want to become. She continues her “focused strategies” on supporting, inspiring, and motivating women to achieve their own dreams.
