Shownotes

This episode is about sustaining the energy to write and market your work, no matter how long it takes. Becky is joined by Martha Anne Toll—Novelist, Book Reviewer, Essayist, and Social Justice Advocate—who discusses her author journey, the challenges that come with trying to publish a novel, and how she has remained confident in herself and her work despite the setbacks. 

During the episode, Martha shares:  

  • About her background and how she’s gotten to this point as an author. 
  • How she sustained the energy and confidence in her book, Three Muses, across a 10-year period of revising, resubmitting, and waiting.
  • What she has done to market her book since its launch.
  • Difficult barriers that she had to overcome when it came time to grow her online presence.
  • Why she calls herself a writer more than she calls herself an author.
  • Her experience launching her first book.
  • What’s working well for her when it comes to getting the word out about her novel.
  • The feeling of not knowing what’s working well and what isn’t once you have launched a book. 
  • The importance of lifting up the work of other authors and not being afraid to ask people to read your book.
  • Some out-of-the-box book marketing ideas.
