The Book Broads are Angela (“Marketing Mama”) Crocker, Kim (“Publicity Chick”) Plumley, & Peggy (“Grammar Geek”) Richardson. Together they write, speak and consult on publishing, marketing, social media and publicity in the world of books and ebooks.
Kim says she’s not a writer. Peggy and Angela disagree. In this podcast, we explore what makes a writer. We talk about having a story to tell, the process of writing and firmly agree that the length of a written work doesn’t matter.
Tell us what you think Kim should write. Leave your thoughts in the comments and we’ll do a follow up podcast in future to let you know what happens.
I admit I am an author groupie – in the very biggest way. When I had a chance to meet Sarah Dunant, I was beside myself. She is the woman behind some fascinating books – the international bestseller The Birth of Venus, which has received major worldwide acclaim, In the Company of the Courtesan and most recently Sacred Hearts. What an honour to meet with her and talk about her research, writing and how to beat a cold when on book tour.
Sarah with touring North America and was doing interviews, book events and connecting with fans. It was a delight to see how gracious and open she was with everyone. It was very clear she had a great love for Canada and she does enjoy spending some quiet time on Hornby Island as often as she can.
You also get a taste of the music that was inspired by the book. Oh, so lovely.
Peggy Richardson and I (two of The Book Broads) caught up with Sarah in Nanaimo, BC before she headed to Denman Island for their Writers Festival. She actually had to record the interview twice due to some crazy technical thingy (don’t ask, I am not savvy with technology). Peggy Richardson, interviewed Sarah and I hope you enjoy the chat they had. I certainly did.
