Get Published Episode 111 – Every Photo Tells a Story

Short stories can be a great vehicle for authors. They give writers the chance to reach audiences they haven’t touched before. But where are markets for shorter work and how do you get your writing into those markets? On today’s show I talk to Mick and Katharina Bordet, the creators of the short story podcast, “Every Photo Tells”. We talk about why they created the podcast and what they are trying to achieve with it. We also talk about how other writers can get involved.

Get Published Episode 62 – Negotiating Contracts

I had the good fortune to talk to Robin Sullivan for the show once again. This time she was fresh from negotiating a contract for her husband, Michael Sullivan, with Orbit Books. Robin brings lots of contract experience to this conversation, both from an author’s point-of-view and from the publisher’s. It was a very enjoyable and rewarding conversation for me. I also talk about how writers can go about learning some of the necessary information about their genres of choice: things like who publishes in the genre and how long the books typically are. I hope you enjoy the show. Show Notes 00:00 — Opening – Get Published Episode 62 – Negotiating Contracts Everything has to start somewhere and this […]

For those who could attend, it meant a weekend of fun, friends and fabulous panels. Of course, not everyone can go to Balticon and some of us decided to have an impromptu virtual convention of our own that we called Balticant. It wasn’t well-planned or even widely attended but the conversations were fantastic and made the whole effort worthwhile. We recorded a few of the sessions and, in this episode, I would like to play the first session where we talk about conventions, […]
