Can You Hear Me Now?

September 25, 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. Shelly Devlin is away so Mandra Biscornet and Deborah Monk interview Stephanie Queen and Mishka Thebaud. Mishka is a professional actor who is currently recording Stephanie's book into audio form.

Learn:
What are the advantages to going audio?
What are the costs involved?
What is the process to finding the right narrator?
Do you market audio books differently than regular books.

Stephanie Queen has always been a writer–ever since second grade when the Nuns of Sacred Heart School got her hooked by offering fame–though not fortune–when she won first prize in their story contest. That was her first publishing gig.

Since then Stephanie kept writing in the background while she built up a catalogue of life experiences. She went to UConn, got married had two sons who could star as heroes in any lucky girl’s romance story, got a Masters degree at Harvard University, worked a few jobs–Math teacher, Keebler Elf and desk jockey at various cubicle farms doing bureaucratic things. Then she finally put writing stories back into the foreground.

Since then, Stephanie has published more than twenty-five novels and novellas. She teaches a class in novel writing and also speaks at libraries, conferences and workshops on writing and publishing.

May you be inspired, feel empowered, and B. Well.

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.
