How can I support the Authorpreneur Podcast?
There are a few ways you can support the podcast. The first is by sharing episodes that you found were quite helpful on social media with other writers and authors. Second, if you found an episode of the podcast quite helpful, you’re more than welcome to buy me a coffee for $2, and I’ll personally thank you on the next episode of the podcast.
Finally, you can regularly support the show on both Patreon and Buy Me A Coffee and receive a few benefits in return. For $2 a month (Pick My Brain tier), I’ll answer your writing, revision, editing, and self-publishing questions. Along with this tier, if it’s appropriate to your question, you’ll receive a mini action plan, plus a follow-up email fourteen days later. At $5 a month (Writing Motivation tier), you’ll receive an exclusive episode of my secret podcast, The Five-minute Writing coach; this is a monthly podcast where I delve deep and help you get unstuck, clear mental obstacles, and motivate you to keep writing all in a five-minute episode. On top of that, in the Writing Motivation tier, you also receive the benefits of the Pick My Brain tier.
I'd like to write a blog post for the Authorpreneur Podcast. How can I submit an article or pitch an idea?
Thank you for you interest, but my blog is not open to guest posts at this time or in the foreseeable future.
How can I be a guest on the Authorpreneur Podcast?
In season three, I want to start discussing how to outline or the pre-writing phase. Because I’m an outliner, that’s all I can talk about, but I realise that this is not everyone’s writing experience. But you get it. I can only talk about my own experience. To give this show a more objective view of the prewriting phase, I want to interview other writers on the podcast about their prewriting process. The question I have for you is, how do you write?
Are you a pantser?
Do you outline?
Or, does your prewriting stage resemble a mixture of both?
I’m particularly interested if you’re a pantser or do something that resembles both plotting and pantsing because I don’t know how someone can open a computer and start writing without a plan. That’s not a judgement on my part; I’m genuinely curious about how you pants your novels.
If you’re interested in coming on the show to talk about how you write, here is a short-list of what I’m looking for in a guest:
- Fiction authors only.
- Published at least three books all in the same genre that are novella length or longer.
- You’ve published your books to a high standard (professional-looking cover and professionally edited).
The reason behind these requirements is I’m looking to interview other authors who have more experience than me. So far, I’ve written two novels and a novella. One of which is 75% of the way through the rewriting process, both all three are not published. And, I’ve published a novella and a short story. I want to talk to authors who are a little further ahead and have or are figuring out what works for them.
If this sounds like you and you meet the three requirements listed above, I’d love to chat with you about how you write on my podcast. Please fill out the Be on the Podcast form.
Can I interview you on my podcast?
I am happy to consider interviews about my books. writing, and self-publishing. If your podcast meets these requirements and has more than ten episodes published, feel free to send me a request via my contact page with a list of questions that you’d like to ask me.
