Rick shares what a professional author looks like, even if you're still working your day job.

There’s more that goes into being a successful indie author than just writing good books, and Rick Partlow tells us what he’s doing that works.

Here are just a few of the things we touched on:

  • Why you want your editor to be mean to you
  • How he sold 30,000 copies in his first year
  • How he accidentally became a plotter
  • Being a professional author versus a hobbyist
