From Simon: Sometimes I’ll have a guest on the show who seems to have 30 hours each day. I’m often amazed by how much they manage to publish despite having a dozen other commitments. This weeks guest post is from Stacy Claflin, who is one of those people. This post will absolutely inspire you to get so much more done. Over to Stacy…
Crossing genres, some love it, some don’t. Dean Lorey, started with traditionally published young adult novels, moved to non-fiction, and now is self-publishing romance (not your ordinary romance though, “romance for men” which is actually satire) In this interview I talk to Dean about why he moved away from the traditional world, how to write comedy, and a whole lot else.
Today I am delighted to usher in a brand new element of Rocking Self-Publishing. Guest posts. In case you missed me bringing these up on the podcast last Thursday, I’m doing this so that RSP can provide really in depth information on a specific element of writing, and the business around books. Today’s post is by Alida Winternheimer. Read More
I sit down in person, in Prague, with AG Riddle. AG started in 2013 and has sold well over 500,000 books. Top ten author in 6 Amazon categories, well over 10,000 reviews across his three books. Rather appropriately, we talk about ambition. Not just in terms of sales, but also in terms of story. AG started off writing with a 500 page epic spanning multiple worlds and many centuries.
Today I talk to Nathan Lowell about he built a successful indie career by creating Podiobooks. We talk about how he got involved in this unique market, how he got 8 million downloads, and how he converted this into sales of ebooks, allowing him to take his writing full time. We also chat about why he decided to write something “outside of the box” – a space opera where the universe wasn’t ending every 5 minutes.
