Join hosts J.D. Barker, Christine Daigle, Kevin Tumlinson, and Patrick O’Donnell as they discuss the week’s publishing topics, including—as always—discussions of AI! Then stick around as Christine chats with New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak.

“When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book,” Brenda admits. “I learned how to write by reading what others have written. The best advice for any would-be author: read, read, read….”

Brenda sold her first book, and the rest is history. Now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she continues to publish two or three novels a year, in a variety of genres. Her latest, The Seaside Library, releases April 11, 2023, and is available for preorder now.
