Hello My Happy People!
Have I got some great news for all of you. I have some amazing interviews to share with you very soon. I am so blessed to have such amazing friends! I have years of working in journalism, book sales, advertising and public relations. Because of this, I have a lot of connections with people who work as writers, publishers, editors, librarians, designers, PR specialists, and more. Since I started my podcast, and even since I decided to become and indie author, it has been a goal of mine to create a network to share as much knowledge of these fields as possible with others who were trying to build careers as indie authors and with the readers who love their work.
I am so excited to tell you that I am starting to see the beginnings of this network. It began with my mom coming on my show and interviewing her to figure out my equipment set up and creating a sample interview so others could hear my style and know what to expect on my show. Then a dear friend and successful western author, Mark L. Redmond, gave me a chance and let me help introduce his new book series.
This week I have more friends who have taken the time to chat with me about their careers. I know you are going to love these interviews with two incredible women. The experiences and knowledge they share are fascinating and will appeal to writers and readers alike.
I hope to have these interviews broadcasting ASAP. I have almost finished the post production on DJ's interview and will be announcing the broadcast date as soon as it is set. I am scheduled to interview Allie on Monday and will announce the dates for that broadcast when it is available.
Last week, I had the chance to catch up with my friend, successful indie romance author, DJ Jamison. We talked about her transition from newspaper editor to prolific MM romance author.
DJ and I talked so much, I am splitting the interview into two shows. In part two, DJ reads from one of her books which happens to be part of a free book promo going on until the end of the year. Check the links below for more information on this giveaway and be sure to watch our social media for broadcast dates for this interview. We just have a bit more production work to finish up then we plan to share it with all of you as soon as possible!
I am actually writing this blog on Sunday because Monday I will be talking with my friend, rare book cataloguer, Allie Alvis.
Allie has published manuscripts, several articles and blogs about books and their histories. She even creates some great book accessories which you can find for sale on Etsy. Allie started her career at the Smithsonian and now works for Type Punch Matrix.
Allie also writes, produces, edits, and presents “Bite Sized Book History,” a series of short videos introducing physical aspects of rare books.
If you like books at all you will not want to miss this interview!
