Ghostwriting, hiring an editor – and the Kindle millionaires

Today I’m being interviewed by historical and speculative novelist KM Weiland at Authorculture, a powerhouse blog she shares with authors Lynette Bonner, Johne Cook and Linda Yezak. Its manifesto is ‘to inspire, enlighten and unite writers and readers’, which sounds pretty necessary to me. And, with their combined background of writing, editing, publishing and mentoring, they certainly deliver.

They’ve long been champions of my book Nail Your Novel, and today they wanted to pick my brains about red-hot topics for writers today – how ghostwriting works, what to look for in a freelance editor, the mistakes I see most commonly in WIPs, the Borders closure, the recent upheavals in publishing – and the Kindle millionaires.

Terrific questions, and I do warn you Katie let me say rather a lot…

    You’re right on the money with the Borders comment. It’s not that Amazon should sweep away all bookstores, but the big bookstore chains had been getting increasingly soulless anyway. I think that, exactly as we’re now seeing with music stores, the small independent bookstores will survive, even though most sales will be online, and the real losers will be the chains. So cry me a river 🙂

      Thanks, Jayz. I’m sobbing right here with you, into my hat…

    There are a lot of ideas under that hat.

Your turn!
