Reflections on Writing
In April, it was my turn in the guest’s chair for a podcast series. Mark Leslie (Lefebvre), author, editor and conference speaker well-known as former director of self-publishing and author relations at Kobo, interviewed me for his Stark Reflections podcast on writing and publishing. Topics we covered included indie publishing opportunities, re-releasing traditionally published titles and the reality of the “16 days” on bookstore shelves with Harlequin Silhouette. (You can hear my interview with Mark on the Authors Love Readers podcast.)

Producing my Authors Love Readers podcast costs money, so I’ve set up a page on Patreon in hopes of support for hosting and recording expenses.
