Episode 38: When are Collaborations a Good Idea?

Show Notes for Episode 38: When are Collaborations a Good Idea? Collaborations.

It’s alien subject for many authors. Even the concept can be a bit foreign. Writing is a solo effort. You’re in your mind, working with your characters in your world. Already they can be so hard to control! So what benefit comes from sharing a world, a page, and a cover with another writer?

It’s not what you’re thinking. It has nothing to do with snagging a duo with a bigger name author, gathering up thousands of new readers and the big bucks – in fact, those don’t typically work out as expected.

Tune in as Holly and I discuss the many pros (and the many cons) of collaborations. It might be just what you needed to hear to convince to write with another person – or to keep your invisible people to yourself.

Episode 37: Writing to Market VS Selling Out

From Rebecca: I believe this is a ‘must listen to’ episode if you are aspiring to write for a living.  There are always exceptions to every rule – but the exceptions are few and far between.  

In this episode we cover the difference between ‘Writing to Market’ and ‘Selling Out’ – and how it can vastly affect your writing career.

Holly reveals a mistake that she has been committing the entire 30+ years she has been writing professionally and has only just found – one that she believes is the answer to why the majority of her work has never sold as well as expected.  She’s about to make a big change to her future works and she wants to share this with our listeners in order to reach those with similar goals who might also be making this mistake.

If you’re looking at dismal sales or piling up rejection slips no matter what you’ve tried, it could beas simple as what she has found.  Could be.  Maybe not.

As always, this podcast is 100% free.  This episode is not an attempt to sell you a system, an ebook, a course, a counseling session, etc.  There is no silver bullet, no guarantee – ever – and anyone promising those things is a salesman looking for a buck.

Rising tides lift all boats and if you’re committing the same writing mistake as Holly, she wants to help.
