Welcome to Let’s Talk Books, the official podcast of Robin Van Auken. It’s my mission to learn new things and share what works, and I chat with interesting people about topics such as inspiration, motivation, book publication and promotion. My guests have wonderful success stories to share, as well as stories of how they’ve struggled with their writing.
Calling All Writers
Interested in Being Interviewed?
If you’re a writer, I know you’ll find some solid advice. If you’re a fan, you’ll enjoy insight into some of your favorite author’s works. But we’re not stopping there, because we’re bibliophiles: “a person who loves or collects books, especially as examples of fine or unusual printing, binding, or the like.”
So we’re also talking with all people who love books. This includes librarians, book sellers, book makers, printers, book collectors and reviewers. If someone has a career, or a hobby that should be a career, and it involves books, we want to know.
Join us as we tell a story.
My generous guests are willing to share important information about their journey to becoming a successful, or soon-to-be-successful published author. That means they’re sharing what works, what doesn’t work, their inspiration and their creative process.
They’re also willing to talk about their failures. This is one of the most important aspects of our interview: failure. We’re also going to discuss taboo topics such as shame, worry, guilt, fear and distress. That’s right, we’re going there, and we’re going to discuss how each and every author handled these negative emotions, overcoming these obstacles, and strived until they were able to reach their goal: becoming published.
