Kobo Writing Life Podcast
KWL EP 001 - Steve Vernon

Kobo Writing Life Director Mark Lefebvre interviews author Steve Vernon, a writer and storyteller of both written and spoken words and they discuss the following:

·         Aspects of writing a serialized story (Steve’s Flash Virus Series), elements of humour in a thriller/horror story and the perspective of being able to laugh at life. 

·         Steve’s first published story in the mid 1980’s in a magazine that featured “Busoms, beards and big bellied bikers.”

·         Embracing both traditional publishing and self-publishing as a hybrid author and how that syncs beautifully with how Steve really “isn’t a writer, just a windbag who likes to spin yarns”

·         The importance of being able to adapt and continue to learn as a writer

·         A few of Steve’s titles:  Sinking Deeper, Maritime Murder, Tatterdemon Omnibus

·         Steve’s favourite advice for writers

·         Some book recommendations from Steve (The Scorpion Races & The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater)

Also included in this episode are Mark’s “Three P’s of Self-Publishing Success” as well as a listener question regarding ensuring your Goodreads reviews appear on Kobo.
