Bryan and Abbie revisit the topic of “hobbyist” vs “professional”.
After giving updates on their currently busy lives, Bryan and Abbie talk with John Mierau from ServingWorlds.com to talk about his Kickstarter for a second book in his Walk the Fire shared world. Proceeds would support numerous talented authors, including Mur Lafferty, Paul Levinson, Philippa Ballantine, Harry Connolly, JRD Skinner, Steve Umstead, Matt Iden, and WJ Davies. The discussion also covered multiple book and audiobook selling ideas and strategies, including what does and doesn’t work, and what we hope to see in the future.
Bryan and Abbie give updates on their various projects.
This episode is a public service announcement to the podcasting community. There is a scam out there under the name of “Tribal Messenger Daily” and “World Author’s Conference”, and it is targeting podcasts and podcast authors. They go as far as making a Faceboook fan page for authors’ work (which effectively puts authors’ faces on their brand without permission, with a clear goal of using authors’ reputations to scam their own audiences). If you get a mail saying “you’ve been selected as one of the TOP 50 PODCASTS FOR AUTHORS!” or a podcast or blog equivalent, do not let your excitement of an “award” blind you from what this is, a serious threat to your hard earned reputation with your audience. Abbie and Bryan talk about all of this as they dig into the seedy details.
Part two (of two) of Bryan and Abbie’s talk with Starla Huchton (author, narrator) and Jamie Jordan (producer) of The Dreamer’s Thread. This is part one of a two part interview.
