Kobo Writing Life Podcast – Episode 050 – Author Signing Event

For our 50th episode, we’re featuring over a dozen all-star indie authors offering an amazing wealth of information about publishing and writing. At the 2015 London Book Fair, these authors joined forces and teamed up with Kobo Writing Life to organize a big signing party. Tune in to hear from H.M. Ward, Diane Capri, Melody Anne, and more! You’ll learn about:

  • Jillian Dodd explaining how this multi-author signing event came together
  • What Diane Capri has learned while serving on the board of the International Thriller Writers
  • Ruth Cardello’s tips for becoming a successful author
  • How Melody Anne got started as an author, and why she loves this job. “If somebody ticks me off I get to kill them in my series! So my life is awesome.”
  • Raine Miller’s tips for translating your novels
  • lsevent-free-wordWhy Michelle A. Valentine works with a literary agent
  • How H.M. Ward manages to write over books per month. “I always have multiple books in the pipeline at a time. So I’ll come up with an idea and I’ll start a book, and then when I’m not really feeling it anymore I put it down and then I pick up something else.”
  • Why CC MacKenzie joined the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi)
  • Steena Holmes describing what ALLi has taught her about marketing to a UK audience
  • Chris Keniston’s “pantser” writing method
  • What Fabio Bueno has learned while writing from both male and female perspectives in his SINGULARITY series
  • How Lee Strauss found her German translator
  • Rebecca Donovan’s thoughts on working with a traditional publisher, Grand Central. She’s also heavily involved in the production process turning her BREATHING series into a movie

The KWL team is always on the road attending writer’s conferences and publishing events, so Christine lists off just a few that we have coming up in the next few months:
