Part 1 of our 2-Part Interview with USA Today Bestselling Author Russell Nohelty
Validation, Indie vs. Traditional publishing, and there's no substitute for time and experience . . .
Russell Nohelty is a USA Today bestselling author, publisher, and speaker. He runs Wannabe Press, a small press that publishes weird books for weird people. Russell is the author of dozens of novels and graphic novels including The Godsverse Chronicles, The Obsidian Spindle Saga, and Ichabod Jones: Monster Hunter. He also edited the Cthulhu is Hard to Spell anthology series. To date, Russell Nohelty has raised over $400,000 on Kickstarter across more than twenty projects.
Russell, along with his business partner Monica Leonelle, runs Writer MBA which offers courses for writers on everything from writing productivity to selling direct to readers.
In this episode, Megan and Greta take a deep dive into the publishing industry and why it can be better to seek validation from readers than from publishers.
