In our June episode we introduced the idea of interviewing authors about their journeys to publication. What better way to kick off this series than with our own Julia Kelly, whose book The Governess was Wicked comes out this month (next week, in fact, on September 12). This first book will be quickly followed by the other two books in the series, The Governess was Wanton in October, and the Governess was Wild in November.
Julia talks about getting “the call” from her agent about an editor wanting to buy her books, what it is like to turn around a three book series on a tight deadline, and how she thinks her decision to indie publish while waiting for a traditional deal has helped prepare her for the launch of the Governess Series. She also shares exciting news about her next project. Watch the video below or listen to the podcast on Soundcloud or iTunes.
