One of the blogs I enjoy reading on writing, marketing and publishing books in 2013 is by Joanna Penn: The Creative Penn. I first appeared on her blog writing on Paratrooping and Publishing after self-publishing Defender in 2011.
This week, I asked on The Creative Penn whether writers are born or made. It's a conversation I also had with some of the co-founding members of the Action Thriller Writers Association of Australia (soon to be thrilleredge.com) - namely Greg Barron and Luke Preston (Tony Park, the other founding member was excused as he is writing his latest tome in South Africa) - about their experiences of 'becoming' a published author. You can read my full post on The Creative Penn blog here.
Our full interviews are published side-by-side, below, to show other aspiring and published writers an honest view of three other authors who are writing their way to, hopefully, the top.
My thanks to Greg and Luke for opening up about their experience, and I look forward to your comments on your own journey as a writer at the bottom of this post.Read More
