I am always on the lookout to learn something new – maybe a new way to grow my author’s platform or market my books.
That’s why I love talking to different authors about what they are doing. One such author is Jessub Flower who is using his debut novel, Daisy Hill to do all of those things: promote, market and try to get a publishing deal. Jessub and I talk about what he has been doing to achieve his own personal writing goals.
I’ve also been giving a lot of thought to my author’s voice. I think part of that is an effort to procrastinate and not actually finish some of my writing. Regardless of the reason, I’ve heard the phrase many times and have wondered exactly what it meant. In today’s show, I talk about what it means to me.
That’s today’s show. I hope you enjoy it.
