Ep. 340
Nat Connors is a romantic comedy writer, medical scientist and dance teacher, and creator of the Kindletrends newsletter for genre fiction authors. Kindletrends started when Nat got fed up with trying to make sense of the Kindle Store, and wanted a no-nonsense summary of the most important information. Nat shared it with author friends, and now wants to share it with the author community as a whole. Nat works at writing every day, and uses this information to write, publish and launch their own books - so it has to be focused, relevant and actionable.Discount link for Kindletrends: http://kindletrends.com/howdoyouwriteHow Do You Write Podcast: Explore the processes of How Do You Write Podcast: Explore the processes of working writers with bestselling author Rachael Herron.
