Episode 8: The Long Game

Happy #InternationalPodcastDay! I’m talking about that most boring of concepts, putting in consistent effort for a long, sustained period of time expanding your catalog to experience success! With a comment from Dan Absalonson guiding our discussion!

Episode 7: You are in Charge

The recent report from Publisher’s Weekly has the industry experts weighing in on drops in profits across the board for reporting publishers. I take a look at some of the opinions on the report and distill it down to what I think about the whole deal. How does it affect our future as writers? Near as I can tell, you are still in charge of your own future.

Episode 5: Mental Health or Lack Thereof

A frank discussion about my history as a creative person, the building blocks of my podcasting and writing life, and how I’m dealing with the depression that assaults creative people. What are some practical steps we can take to counter those times we get so far down, we stop doing what we were made to do?
