223. So, I’ve Published a Book: How Do I Launch and Promote It?

My guest today is Lauren Erickson. She’s an author who’s written a memoir, her (as the subtitle has it) “Summertime Chronicles of a Yellowstone Housekeeping Employee,” and now she works to help other authors launch and promote their books. We talk about launching virtually and in real life, and of course the role of social media.

216. Simple Creative Copy, Creative Writing, and Life in General

My guest today is Stephanie Cansian. She runs a small copywriting agency called Say It Simply, but along the line she had an epiphany that affected both her work and her personal life, notably her emotional eating habits. She lost weight, became re-engaged in her work, wrote a book, and is now working on another book. It’s a fascinating and very open discussion.

205. How to Be Better at Freelancing

My guest today is Rai Cornell. She has worked in  copywriting, content creation, and web development for 15 years, and now runs a successful marketing firm providing advice to a range of clients, large and solo. I asked her to be on the show to talk about the business of being a freelancer, especially as a writer or editor. And she came through, talking articulately from a base of solid knowledge, experience, and training about what a freelancer can do to improve their business.

#37: marketing your book good enough

This episode of Editing Writing is an interview I did with Emily Enger. She runs a marketing service for writers of all kinds—though perhaps mostly those who have self-published or have published with a small press—called Good Enough Book Marketing. She’s a book marketing coach, and as she puts it, she is “helping authors cut through the marketing noise to stay true to their first calling of writing great books.”
