  1. So many GREAT points, C.J.! About practice and the first book usually not being “the one”–the hardest thing I ever did was let my very first novel go as a learner’s permit. Also, giving readers time to find your book = HUGE! Empowering authors…

    shew. I’m still trying to get over your very first book deal heartbreak. Omg~ 😛

    Thanks for this wonderful interview! C.J. really is the best~ :o) <3

  2. Wow! Thank you C.J. Lyons and Joanna Penn for such a wealth of insight and information. I thoroughly enjoyed it all, and especially enjoyed the insights about pricing, and email. I think the reminder that we are writing for our readers was also tremendously helpful. I appreciate it!

  3. Thanks, everyone! I’m thrilled that you enjoyed the interview! We were trying so very hard to cram as much actionable info in there for you all.
    Happy writing,

  4. IndieReCon – You could easily have CJ Lyons for an entire day. Great command and articulation of the entire process with superior results to give it all credibility. Joanna, superb job also steering the video conversation. – Gary Allen VanRiper
