The 20 Year Overnight Success: Interview with Michael Wallace

Very interesting interview with indie writer and author Michael Wallace, hosted by David Gaughran, about Wallace’s success as an independent author who has released several novels through the Amazon e-book services. This is an inspiring interview because it exposes the truth in being an independent writer- it takes a lot of work to maintain a well-structured fan base but the hard work does pay off if you do it correctly with a little bit of luck. This interview along with others with Michael Wallace are full of knowledgeable information about being an independent writer, the marketing and industry behind it. If you are a striving artist like myself who is open minded to being involved with many genre’s of writing (like Michael Wallace) or even if your a writer in general- you may find this interview influential, knowledgeable and interesting.
