In this episode 364, we feature a new comedic murder mystery… ours! Hannah interviews Landis and Sarah about Death by Podcasting. We also discuss Cara Kagan’s blog post on her experiences with the writer’s roller coaster ride of rejection. And we share a new batch of elevator pitches.
Today’s Featured Topics
Act 1:
We celebrate the release of Death by Podcasting, a novella that USA Today bestselling author Jenifer Ruff calls “a clever, comedic mystery [that] will keep you guessing until the final revelation.” Hannah talks to Landis and Sarah about the story and characters, the tongue-in-cheek references to publishing and podcasting, what it was like to co-write, and how we published this independently on a tight timeline.
Act 2:
We discuss Cara Kagan’s blog post “Rejection Perfection.”
Cara Kagan is a writer and musician who has contributed to many national magazines, including Self, Shape, Fitness, Glamour, Real Simple, InStyle, and Harper’s Bazaar. In the vein of The Devil Wears Prada, Almost Famous, and Sex and the City, The Rise, Fall, and Return of Sarah Mandelbaum gives a rich and hilarious birdseye view of the music and fashion publishing industries in NYC in the 90s.
Takeaways from blog post discussion:
● Every writer faces rejection in various forms, and it can come as a shock if you haven’t experienced as much of it in other areas of life.
● Two healthy and productive responses to rejection are to not let it stop you from writing and publishing, and to take whatever lessons or feedback of value you can glean from it and use those to improve your work.
● Be flexible in your approach to writing and publishing. If the end goal is to reach readers with your work, there are many ways to get there.
