You may not know this, but I have been looking for guests who write outside the normal featured genres on Get Published. Traditionally, I have had lots of Science Fiction and Fantasy writers with the occasional Horror person thrown in for good measure.
This hasn’t been done to exclude all the other genres, I promise you. It is more about who I know in the writing field than any effort to exclude anyone.
That means, I haven’t been networking outside my own chosen genre as well as I should. That is a shame because ALL writers have something to share about their own publishing journeys, market differences and even the various tropes that are inherent to their own genres of choice.
I am happy to have a guest from a new genre today.
My guest today is Nicole Chardenet. She has just released her newest book, Sumer Lovin’ in multiple eFormats with the dead tree version coming out in just a few days.
Sumer Lovin’ is a very different book from what I normally read. It is a comedy of sorts that deals with people trying to find love and lust in Toronto. Definitely not something I normally read. I could tell you what I thought of it now, but that would only spoil the review I will give you in the Tips and Typos section of the book.
Regardless of whether it is normally my thing, Nicole and I had a LOT of fun in the interview. Humour is something I am very interested in and the conversation was great. Oh yeah, and did I mention that Nicole’s first book was self-published? Because of that, she was able to give us a comparison between self-published and tradionally published. It was great!
That’s today’s episode. I hope you enjoy it.
