When I first spoke with Kevin Tumlinson a year ago here on RSP, he had just launched his book 30-Day Author and was preparing for life on the road in an RV. Not only is Kevin now toodling around the country in a 38-foot RV with his wife, he has since published another eight new titles (at least), added a fourth show to his podcast repertoire, and joined the awesome author-centric team at Draft2Digital. This week I follow up with Kevin to find out how life on the road is treating him, how he manages to keep up his writing habit amid a busy professional life, and the great free author tools offered by Draft2Digital.
We first spoke to fantasy author Jefferson Smith back in Episode #155 about his Immerse or Die Report, a three-strike rating system designed to identify which indie-published books can keep him walking on his treadmill the longest. Since then, the IOD community has grown with a second anthology in the works, expansion onto the YouTube platform with 5-Minute Immersion Lab videos, and the competitive style Page Fight!
