For each writer on the publishing path, the journey is different. Today our guest is best-selling and award-winning author Wendelin Van Draanen. She writes YA fiction across genres in hopes that youth can find courage, relatability, and light in her stories.
Self-publishing takes a toll on the indie author’s finances. Have you ever wondered how you’re going to pull off each step, from editing to cover and interior layout design? You can’t skimp in these areas. Not to cause anxiety because there are resources out there if you’re willing to get creative.
On today’s episode, Kathleen talks with Brenda Vaca, a poet, and creator of the indie publishing house Riot of Roses. When Brenda created her book (Riot of Roses), she turned to crowdsourcing, successfully funding the entire project using a Kickstarter campaign. Come along on this conversation, get to know Brenda and what she learned through the process, so you don’t have to.
In today’s episode, our guest Kimberly Davis Basso talks about self-publishing. She has won multiple awards for her books, two memoirs (I’m a Little Brain Dead and Birth and Other Stories), plus a new book of horror short stories (Next Door). Kimberley is a wealth of information and shares it freely with our listeners.
