Authors Love Readers: The Podcast

May 1, 2019

Brenda Hiatt is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of nearly 25 novels, including sweet and spicy historical romance, time travel romance, humorous mystery, and the young adult science fiction Starstruck series. Brenda began in traditional publishing with Harlequin, HarperCollins and Avon Books and later made a transition to indie publishing.

She is an active member of Romance Writers of America and Novelists Inc, where she has served as president. In addition to writing, Brenda is passionate about embracing life to the fullest, to include scuba diving (more  than 60 dives to her credit), Taekwondo (she's attained her 3rd degree black belt), hiking and traveling.

In this short "extras" episode, host Patricia McLinn talks with Brenda about the business of writing, being self-published and the editing and promotional aspects that entails.

In her own words: "Nobody can do as much justice to your idea as you can. So you should write the idea yourself.” [12:40]
