WET004 – Sean Platt , Johnny B. Truant and David Wright on Self Publishing

For WET004, I interviewed the three guys behind Sterling and Stone and the Self Publishing Podcast, Sean Platt, Johnny B. Truant and David Wright. This is my first interview with more than one person, and it went off quite well. These guys are full of information, insight, anecdotes and lots of jokes.

WET Podcast

I haven’t talked about it much, but I am starting a new podcast called WET: Writing, Education and Technology. Each week on Friday (beginning 8/29/14) I will post an interview with someone in one or more of those fields. The interviews will range from educators to journalist to self-published writers to musicians to who-knows-who. I’m still working out some of the technical details, but the plan is to have it here at www.erikmarshall.net/wet. It will be available in iTunes and Stitcher and all the other places you would expect to find podcasts. Can’t wait to start, and I hope you enjoy it.

That thing I said about pseudonyms earlier

Well, I’ve done a 180. I decided a little while ago to go with a pen name for fiction and keep my real name for nonfiction, just to separate the two. Maybe I’ll change my mind again before hitting “Publish” on the novel. Stay tuned, I guess. If you want to be kept abreast of such things, you can join my mailing list.

To be honest, though, I am starting to feel like I should reverse them. I am finishing a draft of my memoir about graduate school, and some of the things I have included are very personal, sometimes embarrassing, sometimes incriminating. I am tempted to use a pen name for that, just to preserve the innocence of the guilty, or however the saying goes (the guilty being me), but that seems like a cop-out, and putting my real name on it, I think, will lend it credibility. I mean, it’s all true, so I might as well own it. But still.

I’m going to looking for a few beta readers soon, people to give it a read and give some feedback. If you’re interested drop me an email (erik@erikmarshall.net).
