  • Hi Lindsay,

    I recently left a rating and review of your podcast and was wondering if you could do the same for mine?

    As you probably know, ratings and reviews are the mother’s milk of podcast rankings. I’d love to have a review from someone like you.

    Just go to http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/itunes to find my podcast, The World Changer Show.

    When you do, let me know that you did, and I’ll give you a shout out on the next show.

    Thanks a bunch!

    All the Best,

    Matt McWilliams

  • Hi there, just wanted to pop by and say that I love this weekly podcast. Thank you all for putting in the work and giving us some great information!

  • I love your show! Although I don’t write sci-fi or fantasy, the things you share are often universal. I’m learning a lot from shows such as yours. Keep up the good work. You’re helping us grow!

  • Great podcasts.
    It’s all useful information and great to see what other science fiction and fantasy writers are thinking about.

    Thanks for the podcasts. Keep them coming.

    More discussions that might be interesting for me would be:

    How many books did various authors write before they achieved what they might call critical mass (i.e. making a living from their work).

    How many subscribers did different authors have on their own list when they reached critical mass?

    Are there any authors who write science fiction and fantasy in hybrid form or is that a none concept?

    Have any authors that you know taken part in Dean Wesley Smith’s workshops either online or otherwise? How much benefit do they think these courses have had on their writing careers? I’ve heard some good things about these courses and I’m considering taking some of them.

      Thanks for listening, Peter! In our show with Glynn Stewart (http://www.marketingsff.com/tag/glynn-stewart/), he talked about mixing magic with his science fiction. I know Annie Bellet did some of the DWS workshops, but I can’t remember if she talked about it specifically on our show. I think it came up on her interview on The Author Biz (http://theauthorbiz.com/annie-bellet-on-challenging-your-assumptions/).

      We’ve certainly had a mix of authors who hit it big right from the beginning and others who struggled with multiple different series before having a hit. It’s often a series that takes off rather than any arbitrary number of newsletter subscribers resulting in hitting critical mass. If you haven’t checked out Chris Fox’s interviews (and Write to Market book), that might be a good spot to get some ideas on creating a series with that kind of potential.

      • Excellent. Thanks.
        I just watched the Glynn Stewart and Chris Fox episodes. They both make some interesting points.
        I guess the lesson I take away from this is to feel free to experiment with genre, but making sure not to stray too far in case I find a niche so small that there’s only me in it. I’ll be sticking somewhere between sic-fi and fantasy I suspect. That seems to be where I’m most at home.

        I’m going to go ahead with some DWS workshops. I think I’ve read every book on the craft that was ever written but I still have a lot to learn. A new format might be just the key.

        Thanks for all the great podcasts. Keep them coming.

  • I wanted to thank you for the podcasts. I’m releasing three books this month, with my marketing strategy based largely on what I’ve learned from your show. I’ll post the strat on the 20k FB group. This podcast is a true resource for the writing community.

    Thanks Lindsay, Joe, and Jeff!
