Author Martha Carr joins us this week to take a deep dive into the creation of a multi-author universe. We’ll discuss topics like creating the universe name, selecting the core group of authors to write the books, the creation of art, covers, storylines, the social media community, and the website. We’ll even get into things like the technology involved in managing those storylines and how the various authors work together to create their books.
Author’s Honorée Corder and Brian Meeks consider the marketing mindset that they believe is critical to being able to market your books effectively in today’s crowded market as well as their new book, The Prosperous Writer’s Guide to Finding Readers.
Kameron Hurley joins us this week to discuss the Patreon model as an alternative income stream for authors.
We discuss the reasons she chose Patreon, how to develop the right offerings for supporters, and what you’ll need as an author to best utilize Patreon.
We also discuss her recent Hugo Award nomination, her new book THE STARS ARE LEGION, and since she’s a professional copyrighter, I ask for tips on crafting blog posts in support of new books.
