As an indie press-seeking or self-published author, the dream is to get your hard-won book out into the hands of the public. Some will jump when offered the chance because it sounds too good to be true. In this episode, Kathleen and Penny Sansevieri go in-depth into the darker side of the publishing world. A caution for the hopeful to do their due diligence before handing money to a supposed publishing company or marketing firm.
This week’s episode of Talking Book Publishing is a rare treat for us. It’s never happened in the podcast’s two seasons that we get to talk with an author on the release day of their book. Today our guest Bruce Carlin is the author of Undeterred: How One Determined Vietnamese Orphan Carved Out a Place for Himself in America. This novelistic biography is an immigrant story of resilience and determination. Bruce and Kathleen discuss his writing process, the book’s subject, dive a little into the stock market, and how these pieces combine to tell a compelling once-in-a-lifetime story.
