Jeff kicks off the week discussing how revisions are going on his current project. He also discusses a successful battle to get audiobook rights reverted, and the progress he’s making on re-publishing. Jeff & Will also discuss how they’re approaching 2020. Will wraps up the show with three podcast episodes that are chock full of information authors can use in the new year.
We know we said we were taking the holiday off, but we felt recent events concerning gay romance (and the entire genre as a whole) needed to be addressed. In this mini-episode, we discuss the current uncertainty and offer suggestions on how to best move forward in 2020.
Jeff & Will are joined by author, memoirist, podcaster and teacher (though perhaps facilitator is the better word) Rachael Herron. They talk about her 90 Days to Done class, which Jeff recently completed, along with the other classes she offers. We also find out how all of that fits into her writing life and how she knew she was ready to teach.
Schedule note: Jeff & Will are taking next week off for the holidays. They’ll be back January 4, 2020.
Will talks about several informative shows he listened to this week that are relevant to all authors, including Nora Phoenix talking with Craig Martelle about self marketing, The Writing Gals and their 2020 goals, the Choose FI Podcast featuring an interview with Atomic Habits author James Clear and the Ask Alli Podcast with Joanna Penn and Orna Ross talking about the past decade and what may come in 2020. Jeff & Will also discuss Joanna Penn’s new book, Productivity for Authors, and the tips they took away for themselves to kickstart their productivity.
Jeff wrapped up his 90 Days to Done class and Will started a course on writing holiday stories. Slade James’s interview with audiobook narrator Kirt Graves on GayRomance.Show is discussed. Jeff talks about more things he’s learned about contracts. Plus we hear from veteran gay romance authors BA Tortuga and Julia Talbot who have guidance for authors based on their careers.
