194: The Business of Writing – Interview with Jane Friedman

Hey there word nerds!

Today I am so excited to have my good friend and mentor Jane Friedman on the show!

Jane has 20 years of experience in the publishing industry, with expertise in digital media strategy for authors and publishers. She is the co-founder of The Hot Sheet (my go-to resource about the industry), is a columnist for Publishers Weekly, and has been interviewed on many prestigious media outlets like NPR, PBS, and The Washington Post.

In addition to all these accomplishments, Jane has delivered keynotes and presentations on the digital era of authorship at major writing events and today she is here to share her expertise with an inside look at her new book The Business of Being a Writer.

Listen in as we chat about the topic Jane discusses in her book and the ins and outs of the business side of writing most creatives don’t often talk about but need to hear.

In this episode Jane and I discuss:

  • Bridging the divide between art and business.
  • Developing your own marketing strategy to make a living as a writer.
  • Understanding the truth about how the publishing industry works.
  • Tips for building your own business model.
  • How to be entrepreneurial in your writing career without being an entrepreneur.

Plus, Jane’s #1 tip for writers.
