In this video, I interview an old and long friend of mine who has recently made her debut in self-publishing last year!! We both wanted to become authors NOW her author dreams have come true 🙂 Since Robin is relatively new into the self-publishing world, I think her perspective can really help us newbies.
NOTE: I turned the volume during the interview portion WAY UP because it was a hard to hear. PLEASE ADJUST to your liking!
1:22 Intro to Robin!
3:03 Why did you choose to self-publish and not traditionally publish?
7:21 How do you plan and schedule a YA trilogy?
10:03 How long are your books and how many words do you write per day?
13:23 Are you a pantser or plotter?
18:59 What are your books about?
21:00 What is a blurb?
23:12 Discussion around professional editing and beta readers
27:59 Can self-published books get into bookstores?
30:55 Discussion around budget and the investment in your book
33:42 Challenges in marketing your book
I’m so sorry the format of this video didn’t work out correctly. I didn’t realize the recorded session would be like this. And I’m so sorry about the loud typing on the second half of the video. I was engaged in an immediate work situation 🙁
I hope you still enjoyed the video and learned something about the self-publishing. I’d love to bring Robin back and ask interview her again so please ask your questions in the comments below and I’ll see what I can do 🙂
