PODCASTS

There are a number of podcasts targeted at authors. Here are my favorites:

The Creative Penn hosted by Joanna Penn. This is my all-time favorite writing related podcast. Joanna is a savvy and enthusiastic author entrepreneur who provides fantastic business and marketing information. Her optimism is my antidote to the negativity often expressed in the industry. Plus, I love the way she explores new niches and trends in publishing.

How Do You Write hosted by Rachael Herron. Fascinating interviews where authors reveal details about their writing processes.

Writing Excuses hosted by Brandon Sanderson, Mary Robinette Kowal, Howard Tayler, and Daniel Wells. I particularly recommend the elemental genre breakdowns they did in 2016 (Season 11).

The Petal to the Metal with Rachael Herron and J. Thorn. Down-to-earth conversations about what it's like to be a full-time writer.

The Smarty Pants Book Marketing Podcast hosted by Chris and Becca Syme. Actionable marketing advice for fiction and non-fiction writers.

The Story Studio Podcast with Johnny B. Truant, Sean Platt, and David Wright. The language is definitely not suitable for work, and they often go off-topic, but these guys are dedicated to making their author careers stick and aren't afraid to experiment. Their stories of what's working and not working for their business, and their future plans for optimizing their business, are bound to give indie authors some good ideas. Worth listening to even if just for the banter.

Mark Dawson's Self Publishing Formula hosted by Mark Dawson and James Blatch. They discuss self-publishing with a variety of people in the industry.

The Science Fiction & Fantasy Marketing Podcast hosted by Lindsay Buroker, Joseph Lallo, and Jeffrey M. Poole. Even though I don't write SFF, I've found many of their interviews to be applicable to any genre.
