Let’s Talk Books Podcast

Are you listening? Let’s talk books.

Welcome to Let’s Talk Books, the official podcast of Robin Van Auken, the Wholehearted Author. It’s my mission to learn new things and share what works, and who better to help with this mission than published authors?

I’m talking to interesting people about topics such as inspiration, motivation, creating, publication and promotion. My guests have wonderful success stories to share, as well as stories of how they’ve struggled with their writing.

Writing for Sanity with Mike Reuther

Mike Reuther is a journalist by profession, but he never stops writing. Most mornings, before he heads to work at the daily newspaper, where he reports on government, politics, health care, crime, sports and general news, Mike works on his novels and self-help books. A non-nonsense and prolific writer, he has 18 books he's self-published since 2011.

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.
