After discussing the state of the world, Jeff gives some updates on the ongoing release activities for Keeping Kyle. Will talks about BookBub Mastery by Nick Thacker and Nora Phoenix’s appearance on 20 Books to 50k’s Facebook channel talking about Seven Things for Successful Authors. Author Meghan Maslow also joins Jeff for a round of Q&A.
Jeff recaps his week, including the cover reveal for Keeping Kyle and the relaunch of his newsletter. Brent Hartinger talks about his career, including why he writes, how he wishes he’d picked a genre earlier in his career and his advice for those looking to have a career as a writer.
With 300 days left in 2020, Will talks about tackling the rest of the year while Jeff looks at his past week dealing with taxes (which provided some interesting insights) and the cover reveal for the “Kyle Project.” The guys take a deep dive on the just released book Audio For Authors: Audiobooks, Podcasting, And Voice Technologies by Joanna Penn.
Jeff shares his progress on the Kyle Project. The guys talk about their trip to the Coastal Magic Convention. Will shares his takeaways from two podcasts he listened to, which further drove home the fact that authors have to do what works for them even if it’s against the advice of the gurus. Jordan Castillo Price also does a round of Q&A.
After recapping their week, Jeff and Will have question and answer sessions with K.D. Edwards, author of the Tarot Sequence series, and TJ Klune, who this spring releases The House in the Cerulean Sea and The Extraordinaries.
NOTE: The guys will be away next week for the Coastal Magic Convention, so the next episode will be February 29.
