Mandra Biscornet, Deborah Monk, and Shelly Devlin interview the Host of the “Friends in Recovery” podcast Mike Miles about the 30 year process of writing his book “Miles of Hope.” What started off as a therapeutic exercise ends up being a tool to aid in the reader’s recovery. They also discuss the power of journaling, also known as Narrative Therapy, as a tool to aid in one’s recovery from addiction. Mike’s podcast airs every Tuesday afternoon at 4pm on YouTube Live and can be found on iTunes, Podbean, IHeart Radio, and almost any podcast catcher.

Achieving Climax and Resolution with Stephanie Queen

Achieving Climax and Resolution with Stephanie Queen

May 22, 2018

Whether you are writing fiction, Non-Fiction, a memoir, or are just into creative writing this is the podcast for you. This podcast is more than just about how to write as we cover the why’s, when’s, and where’s of writing. This week Shelly Devlin, Deborah Monk, and Mandra Biscornet interview Stephanie Queen about her work as an author of 29 novels and how she accomplished them in only 7 years. A self-proclaimed procrastinator, she works best under pressure and sets deadlines for herself by setting pre-orders on Amazon 90 days out. This is one great way to help an author push through “the wall” many hit during their writing process especially if you find your self putting your writing off. Other things discussed in this episode are:

  • Climax and resolution
  • Preparation for writing
  • Studying the market for your Memoir prior to its release
    • Read some of the top books in your genre
    • Look for incites in your market
    • Find something that appeals to you and stay true to yourself
    • You are looking for the intersection of the market you are writing in and your own passion
  • Getting found in a virtual world with infinite shelf space when nothing goes out of print when it was never printed to begin with
  • What an undiscovered author should be pricing their e-book at to get the most market penetration and why.

Two Authors Attend Two Writing Conferences

Two Authors Attend Two Writing Conferences

May 1, 2018

Whether you are writing fiction, Non-Fiction, a memoir, or are just into creative writing this is the podcast for you. This podcast is more than just about how to write as we cover the why’s, when’s, and where’s of writing. This week Shelly Devlin is away so Deborah Monk and Mandra Biscornet interview each other about two separate writing conferences they each attended. Deborah attended Romance Writers of America while Mandra was at Harvard’s Writing, Publishing, and Social Media for Health Care Professionals Conference.  Join or form your own writer’s group, read books in your genre, and make writing a habit are just some of the takeaways from this weekend.  When you go to a conference you should not only have your elevator pitch written but you should also have it rehearsed so you can deliver it in an actual elevator!
