#165 – It’s Like Friends, but Funny

It’s 2022. Lindsay is taking a break from the podcast and writing, taking a year off to accomplish some other things on her list. But Jerry has recruited someone else to join him. Because as new authors, we should be talking to each other, the New Author Podcast will have a new co-host. Joining Jerry most weeks will be Rich Kacy. Listen as Jerry and Rich (and sometimes Lindsay) talk about blurbs, virtual retreats and new writing software, along with their publishing hopes, and anything else that pops into their head while talking into a microphone.

If you’re an existing author or are writing your first book, come and listen to us because we were in the same boat as you. We’ve made mistakes so you don’t have to! Come hear our successes and our mistakes, find out where we spend money and where we shouldn’t have spent money. We’ll tell you everything we did to be successful (or fail…as the case may be). And you’ll hear a nice conversation on blurbs, virtual retreats and new writing software.

This week, you can hear things talked about such as:

  • New Writing Software?
  • Golf Talk
  • A Plotting Update from Rich
  • Jerry has started writing again!
  • Busy Weekends
  • Story Grid
  • When should the murder happen?
  • Miss Marple
  • Hallmark / Britbox shows
  • and so much more!
