Get Published Episode 138 – Paul E Cooley Publishes “The Black”

After a very busy summer it’s great to be back recording Get Published. Things with the show haven’t changed much since episode 137. The intro & outro music is different and I’m adjusting the format a little, but I hope to still provide you with the same great information from writers, publishers, editors and other writing related professionals.

A few things have happened since episode 137. The biggest is I released Mik Murdoch: The Power Within. Reviews of the new book have been very positive and I am already working on Mik Murdoch 3 for planned 2015 release.

On today’s show, I bring back an old friend of the show who had news of his own. Paul E Cooley has been self-publishing for several years. Earlier this summer he started to hint at a big announcement. Fast-forward to September when he released a brand-new novel titled “The Black”, published by Severed Press. I talk to Paul about his rollercoaster journey with the new novel.

And, if you have any writing or publishing questions (or comments or feedback), please email them to me: feedback at getpublishedpodcast dot com.

And with that, let’s get the show started. I hope you had a great summer.
