I was interviewed on The Business of Writing podcast about

How to Start a Publishing Business

Listen to the podcast here

Here’s brief summary of what host, Peggy DeKay, and I discussed. That’s us in the photo along with Peggy’s husband, Larry DeKay.

  • Why do I need to treat my writing as a business? What are the advantages of doing that?
  • Should I start a limited liability company? Is it more expensive?
  • Is there an easy way to keep records of my expenses?

I mentioned a spreadsheet I created for writers to easily organize their income and expenses.

Check out the DeKay’s annual The Business of Writing International Summit held in Louisville, Kentucky. I attended as a faculty member in 2014 and had a wonderful time. It was a great conference.
