About This Episode

In part two with Kathleen and Adanna, Kathleen spearheads the interview with Adanna centering it around eBooks and eBook promotions and a more in-depth look at Amazon ads and Goodreads. They cover your author website, social media, and how you tie all these elements together. They also revisit your genre aesthetic and go deeper into linking the personal elements as the author into your overall genre vibe.

In 2020, eBook sales were up 22% over previous years. It might seem like a market that doesn’t need attention. But the reality is that 35% of the market reads on their eReader, compared to 37% who only read physical books.

About Adanna

Born in 1978 to parents finding their way through the Los Angeles music business, Adanna’s life has constantly been submerged in art. Moving to upstate New York at a young age, she attended a Waldorf/Steiner school on a small, working organic dairy farm. An unconventional education provided a start in her journey of writing and painting. Waldorf education also provided a lifelong acceptance of her creative mind and the depths to which her imagination could take her. With dreams of being a travel journalist and novelist as a child, and a vision of filling others’ lives with stories and beauty, Adanna wove her way through many different careers to finally land where she always knew she should be. After a fifteen-year nursing career to a hairstylist to today, where she works as a literary publicist and web designer, Adanna makes sure her entire world revolves around literature. Adanna writes about life inspired by nature and has a deep desire to make the world a better place, one word at a time. Threadbare is her first book of poetry. She lives with her husband, stepsons, and daughter in the mountains of Idaho.
