Interview--Indies Who Sell

Author rank Amazon thru 7.15

Listen to the interview here.

(That’s my Amazon author rank from the beginning, over there.)

Well, this was pretty cool, and, if you’re an author or aspiring author, a useful podcast to add to your list. Romance author Sylvia Frost and developmental editor Mary Novak have a “craft” podcast in which they interview indie authors who sell well, in a variety of genres. Their show is unusual because they aren’t looking at marketing so much as craft–WHY does a particular author sell better than average? What about their books is compelling to their readership?

I was flattered but amused to be asked to appear on their show, because, as I told them, I consider myself the “Grandma Moses of writing.” I confess that I didn’t really know what I was doing when I wrote my first few books, and I’m still often bemused by “craft” discussions like “plot holes.” (What ARE plot holes?) or “deep point of view.” (huh?) So it was interesting to get their take on what I do differently and what I do right.
