My Interview on Novelists, Inc.

A few months ago, marketing expert Penny Sansevieri told us how important it is that authors have a website as part of their marketing machine. This goes for new authors, as well as authors who have already been published. In fact, it’s crucial that multi-published authors have websites so that they can present their catalogue of work in one unified place. So naturally, I was really excited when Novelists, Inc., the international organisation for multi-published authors, contacted me for an interview about websites and online portfolios for authors.

They just published the interview on their blog today and I encourage you to take a look. In addition to advice about writing and websites, I also had the chance to talk about health, fitness and even mathematics. It’s an eclectic interview, that’s for sure, but all the more enjoyable for it.

So thanks Novelists, Inc. for the opportunity. It’s a thrill to be featured on your website.
