For those of you who have the joy of Black Friday, I hope you survived the mayhem unscathed. Rather than going shopping, I went out with my Scouts to do our Survival Shelter Camp. There was lots of snow and lots of hunters around, but I’m pleased to report that everyone who went came back intact. Still, I’m undecided whether the camp or Black Friday shopping would have been the easier choice.
On today’s show I speak to Mark Leslie Lefebvre. Mark is a writer, editor and he recently became the Director of Self-Publishing & Author Relations at Kobo. Mark is also President of the Canadian Booksellers Association. We had a great conversation talking about self-publishing, Kobo Writing Life, and several other topics of interest.
I am also very pleased to have JR Murdock bring another Unorthodox Writing Tips to the show.
That’s today’s episode. I hope you enjoy it.
