#108 The Secret Life of Authors Revealed, with Rachael Johns, Lisa Ireland & Sally Hepworth

How much fun can three Aussie Romance Authors have? Rachael Johns, Lisa Ireland and Sally Hepworth share their secrets of living their lives as professional writers, including making the time to write, pushing through the resistance, finding your tribe and more, much more.

The trio chat about word-counts, trusting in the process and accountability. Committing to the writing life is a choice, and it’s not for everyone, but if you’re an aspiring author, or an author on your own writing journey, then these ladies have something to share with you. A few gems; if it’s easy, forget it, don’t reject yourself, fracking around (not sure what this one’s about but I’m going to listen again to find out:), just put your work out there, and don’t lose faith in yourself. There’s also a wonderful thing called a Freedom App, which turns everything else off, and leaves you to write undistracted, something I’m checking out as I type this.

Rachael, Lisa and Sally have published over thirty books between them, with Sally having just released her novel, Lisa is next and Rachael later in the year.  They not only know what they’re talking about, they’re generous in sharing their knowledges. You can find out more about Rachael here, Lisa here, and Sally, here. Don’t forget to subscribe to The Secret Life of Authors newsletter on any of their websites.
