Interview with the Self Publishing Podcast

Interview with the Self Publishing Podcast

The boys over at SPP (Johnny, Sean, and Dave) and I had an awesome time recording a podcast on what it’s like to be married to a guy in the military—specifically a Green Beret.

I normally keep really hush-hush about my personal life where my Husband is concerned, but this time, I bust all the info out. We talk about the emotional texture that being a military wife adds to my writing, the difficulty of balancing #allthethings during deployments, and more.

Character Archetypes: The Goodly Hero

My second guest appearance on the Stories for Nerds Podcast!

Stories for Nerds Podcast Banner

Don’t miss my second appearance with the amazing crew over at Stories for Nerds. This time, we’re talking character Archetypes, specifically The Goodly Hero. You know, the character that’s almost painfully perfect. Our discussion revolves around some of the characters we immediately think of, and how to avoid making them trope-ish.

Podcast with the Science Fiction and Fantasy Show

Podcast with the Science Fiction and Fantasy Show

I hung out with Lindsay, Jeff and Joe from SFF Marketing podcast and we had a great time talking about the YA genre, Wattpad, self publishing with a family, BookBub tips, and different launch/release strategies. Check it out from the links below!

Note: in the podcast I share my BookBub numbers several times and mention selling 3,500 books on Amazon with my recent ad, but I checked back on those numbers and it was close to 3,000 books WIDE on all distributors including paperback and audiobooks (which are also affected by BookBubs) and includes all sales overall (including spillover into the other books in my series). <— This encompasses just the first week. 

So it was not just my BookBub ad book that reached those numbers. I wish! Historically, however, by the end of the month, it’s likely I will reach 4,000—or beyond it—in sales from the BookBub tail. I have in the past seen upwards of those numbers from BookBub ads.

So sorry for that mess up! Transparency is really important to me so I wanted to add that caveat here. 🙂

Podcast with Kobo Writing Life

Podcast with Kobo Writing Life

Every year I attend the Superstars Writing Seminar. And every year I run into my good friend Mark LeFebvre, Director Kobo Writing Life.

We have a history that really flatters my . . . outspoken side.

I basically called him out in front of the whole conference my first year (we talk about it in the podcast) and the next year I pulled him into the bar where we discussed BookBub strategy and how Kobo could help me hit the top of their list. (I made it ahead of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child for a day or two, and stayed in the #1 slot for a good chunk of time).

This year, we recorded a podcast together.

Check it out here: Katie Cross. From Full Time Author to Full Time Mom.

If you aren’t already the Kobo Writing Life podcast, I highly recommend you do so! It’s full of fantastic content for any type of author, but caters a lot to the indie side of things. They’re always pulling really relevant information in.

Here are a few of my favorite episodes:
