Story-writers and novelists,
Check out this interview. It’s insightful and down-to-earth practical.

Best-selling Brittish mystery/thriller writer Zoe Sharp (the Charlie Fox series) started writing novels at age 15 but admits writing is still hard.
She confirmed for me that a good way of promoting your novel (perhaps the best way) is to self-publish an anthology of your short stories, especially if they involve the main character or characters of your novel(s) [what I wrote at the left includes a bit of my own interpretation, by the way].
She talks about traditional vs self-publishing, about writing a series, and about making the transition as a Brittish novelist to a US readership.
Lots of good info briefly stated-–in exchange for an investment of about 20 minutes of your time.
P.S. Let me know if you found it intriguing and/or helpful.
