Write to Support Your Writing: A Guest Spot on The Author Biz
Whether you’re an aspiring author or a working journeyman writer, Steve Campbell’s podcast The Author Biz is worth your time and attention.
And I’m not saying this just because he recently had me as a guest on his show—a show during which I talked about my experiences with the different kinds of writing I’ve done to support my fiction.
I’m saying this because he’s interviewed a wide variety of writers, and if you want to understand more about the business side of this endeavor, you need to listen to the wisdom of people who are actually doing it, living it, every day.
In my interview, in addition to talking about my latest Dakota Stevens mystery, Steve and I discuss various lessons (or “takeaways” to use a business trope) that I’ve learned from the many types of writing I’ve done over the years. The focus is on my speechwriting, but I think there are a few nuggets of wisdom in there that could save you time in your pursuit of success as a writer—however you choose to define Success.
Below is my interview, but be sure to click through to Steve’s site and listen to some of the other authors’ interviews. I think you’ll enjoy them.
