Why is being prolific so important for long-term success as a writer? And how can you develop your own creative process so you can be more prolific? I discuss these topics and more with Bec Evans from Prolifiko in today's interview.
In the intro, I talk about exciting news out of Frankfurt Book Fair as Apple tells publishers to “be ready” as it prepares to roll out its new audiobook platform [The Bookseller].
Frankfurt's first audiobook conference also included a discussion on smart speakers, streaming and subscription models [Publishing Perspectives]. Plus, Kobo has expanded audio support to CarPlay [Engadget].
Plus, having fun with creativity through flash fiction, my own audio coaching, and giggling about Banksy's shredded artwork. Let's not take ourselves so seriously!
