If you follow the publishing industry at all, you’ve probably at least heard of Jane Friedman. Between her articles, courses, and the wealth of resources she provides to her audience, she’s kind of everywhere.
In this episode Jeniffer and Chad talk with Jane Friedman about how she got started doing what she does. And she does a lot! Mostly, she’s an expert on the publishing industry and a guide for helping authors understand it.
You’ll learn a lot of valuable information in this one. And because this podcast is actually pretty fun, you’ll also get to hear their opinions on fonts, artistry, Amazon and where the industry is headed. Jeniffer also gets Jane to open up a bit about weird jobs and bourbon preferences.
