Each special guest answered the same 7 key questions, in as many or as few words as they wished:

  1. What is the secret of your success?
  2. What was the single best thing you ever did?
  3. How do you get/stay in a creative mood?
  4. How do you prioritise?
  5. What’s next?
  6. What’s the highlight of being an author – publisher for you?
  7. What are your top tips for other indie authors?

Although between them the guests represented a wide range of genres, from historical fiction to travel writing, there were some recurring themes echoing through their answers – and also quite a few surprises!
