How do you write consistently over a long career? How do you deal with huge ‘overnight' success on your 125th book? How do you balance faith and a great story when writing Christian fiction? I talk about these topics and more with mega-bestselling author Jerry B Jenkins on today's show.
In the introduction, I mention my writing diary at JFPenn.com/now, as well as the launch of my new audiobook ARKANE Thriller box set 1, with nearly 20 hours of audio. Longer books are definitely better for audio fiction. I recommend Sci-Fi and Fantasy Marketing podcast on What it takes to be a 6-figure author.

Today's show is sponsored by my own How to Write a Novel course, which I created while writing End of Days, so you get a behind the scenes look at how the book came together. One course member, Leigh Anderson said, “This course is exactly what I was looking for. I now feel well on my way to writing and completing my first draft. It has been a real breakthrough for me.” Check it out at www.TheCreativePenn.com/writenovel
