Back in 2014-2015, when I first started focusing on working with writers, I decided to record a series of conversations with authors that I published as a podcast called – wait for it! – Conversations with Authors. Podcasts weren’t really a thing back then, and I was a bit ahead of the times, but I recorded 23 episodes and they got around 200-300 listens each.
I was at a 4N meeting recently where I heard Gary Jones of Grow Marketing talk about podcasting – and it inspired me to take a second look at my own podcast and relaunch it! I’ve worked with so many incredible authors over the years, and it’s a fantastic opportunity for them to promote their books to a wider audience and share their advice with other aspiring authors – and of course it raises my own profile as the go-to fairy for all things self-publishing!
In each episode I chat to an author about what inspires them to write, how they go about the writing and publishing process, what writing has taught them about themselves, where the book has taken them and what advice they can pass on to other writers. It’s fascinating to hear people’s experiences and motivations, and there is so much inspiring advice on offer for anyone interested in becoming an author!
In the meantime, the trailer below will give you a taste of what’s to come.
And if you’ve written and published a book – in any genre – and would like to appear on the podcast, please click here to book your spot!
