On Thursday evening Dave had a chat with Radio Verulam’s Danny Smith on his Drivetime show about the upcoming paperback publication (end of March but available on Kindle and Kobo now) of his new fantasy novel ‘Jacey’s Kingdom’.
They also discussed Dave’s three self-published collections of short stories, his thoughts on self-publication versus established publishing companies (Dave thought there were benefits to both approaches) and how to start writing your own pieces.
On the subject of writers just starting out, short stories before the first novel was the view. Try lot’s of practice by, for instance, joining a local writers’ group (Verulam Writers’ Circle would be an excellent example), receiving group critique and entering group and national short story competitions for the experience.
The link to Radio Verulam’s blog is here and the actual broadcast, available for another week, is here (WEST HERTS DRIVETIME Thursday 28th 5pm slot, actual interview starts at 5.32pm).
