We’re joined by Ed McDonald, author of the Grimdark fantasy debut BLACKWING! Ed Skypes in from his hometown of London to chat about the new novel and what creepy monsters and Grimdark elements readers will find within its pages. We chat about the significant six figure deals Ed received after rights were auctioned to publish the gritty trilogy. Plenty of writing discussion as well as we hit on what to consider when writing realistic weapons that makes sense, and why maybe debuting with a sprawling multi-epic series isn’t the best choice for a fantasy author starting out. You can find Ed McDonald online at EdMcDonaldWriting.com, or on Twitter at @EdMcDonaldTFK!

We’re joined yet again by #1 ranked literary agent for science fiction & fantasy Mark Gottlieb with Trident Media Group! This time we chat about the importance of securing foreign rights, the tendency for more publishers to go after audiobook rights, the value of securing film/tv rights for an author (even if a movie never gets made), we talk about the importance of self-promotion, the many benefits of running a BookBub promotion, and why starting a newsletter is a great idea. Find Mark online at TridentMediaGroup.com, or on Twitter @Trident_Media!
