Writer chats 4: Chatting with PJ Whittlesea about writing books, selling print books, writing a series and more

In this writer chat:

  • In this chat Paul chat’s about his two writing groups and how he finds the different challenges of writing in silence and writing in a busy environment affect his focus.
  • We talk about hand-selling print books (if you’re thinking of doing a print run for your first book then you need to listen to this)
  • Paul talks about how he turned the traditional idea of witches on it’s head for Complicated Blue (his take on it is really cool).
  • We talk about the challenges of writing a series arc.
  • Paul talks about how his very interesting experiences in his previous careers as a musician and theatre technician have shaped and inspired his author journey
  • He also talks about the inspiration behind his two books (really interesting! I love hearing how other authors come up with their ideas:-)
