Lorna Faith Interviewed Me (An Interview That Will Hopefully Inspire New Writers)

Lorna Faith did a lot of work in putting this together, so all the credit goes to her. 😀

Below is the You Tube video.  You can also listen to it on iTunes or listen to it directly off of her blog.  She did a great job of summing up what we said, too, if you want to read it.

The goal of the interview was to inspire new writers. Topics include the following:

  • pursuing your passion in the face of opposition
  • an idea for creating a writing/publishing schedule
  • what to do when you get stuck while writing
  • the steps of writing a book
  • benefits of self-publishing
  • creating the emotionally engaging character by digging deep into point of view
  • advice on writing historical fiction
  • marketing advice for introverts: building relationships instead of trying to sell books and stick to 2-3 things you love, email list, Bookbub author profile, Book Launch pages, pre-orders
  • how to get over the urge to give up when things get rough
  • putting feedback in perspective

By the way, my experiment with the pre-orders is over, and I found the book that was on pre-order at Amazon sold the same as the one that wasn’t.  I’ll do a more detailed post at http://www.selfpubauthors.com in a couple weeks.
