Podcast – Talking Wattpad and Book Covers with Holly Heisey

I trust everyone had a satisfactory weekend? Splendid! It’s Rob Matheny (@RobMatheny80) back with another great interview with a talented author and designer. Holly Heisey is her name, and Wattpad is her game. Holly has been a finalist for the Writers of the Future contest, she’s also a skilled book cover designer and illustrator. During out chat we cover some Wattpad basics, how authors can utilize the platform to both direct readers to their books and get feedback; we talk about her science fantasy novel The Emperor of Time; and some basics to consider when indie writers tackle the important task of designing an eye catching book cover. Co-hosted by my were-badger loving buddy and author Philip Overby (@Phlip_Overby), you can find Holly at HollyHeisey.com, or on Twitter @HollyHeisey.
