BookTrib is proud to present to our readers the Writers, Ink podcast, a show about the business of writing.
J.K. Rowling was nearly homeless when she wrote the first Harry Potter book. Stephen King penned Carrie on a small desk wedged between a washer and dryer. James Patterson worked in advertising and famously wrote the Toys “R” Us theme song long before becoming an author.
Whether you’re traditionally published or indie, writing a good book is only the first step in becoming a successful author. The days of just turning a manuscript in to your editor and walking away are gone. If you want to succeed in today’s publishing world, you need to understand every aspect of the business — editing, formatting, marketing, contracts. It all starts with a good book, then the real work begins.
Join international bestselling author J.D. Barker and indie powerhouses, J. Thorn and Zach Bohannon, as they gain unique insight and valuable advice from the most prolific and accomplished authors in the business.
Join hosts J.D. Barker, JP Rindfleisch IX, Kevin Tumlinson, and Patrick O’Donnell as they discuss the week’s publishing topics, including JP’s undying love for keeping things local. Then stick around as Kevin chats with NYT bestselling author Daniel Suarez about indie publishing, the future of technology, and making the most of experts.
Daniel Suarez is the New York Times bestselling author of Daemon, FreedomTM, Kill Decision, and Delta-v. His latest novel, Critical Mass, was released on January 31st from Dutton Books (PRH) and is available now wherever books are sold.
