>> As writer, we can have huge impacts on our readers. For Stephanie Churchill, an encouraging word from her favorite author led her down the path of an indie author. Daphne talks to her about her genre (“fantasy that reads like historical fiction”), how she balances everything (two kids, a nonprofit, a real estate side business – phew!), and how she gets enough sleep (yes it is possible!).

A brief summary of what Daphne and Stephanie chatted about:

  • Her unusual genre - How she connected with her friend and mentor, historical fiction writer Sharon Kay Penman
  • Why she focuses on reviews as her definition of success
  • If it’s easier now that her kids are a bit older (spoiler – nope, just different!)
  • How she organizes her day
  • Why sleep is THE most important thing
  • The traditional gender roles in her house that still let her do her own thing
  • If it’s important or not for a spouse/partner to read your work

>> In the tips, J. R. talks about being a non-jerk member of the awesome indie author community that exists.
