Ron Vitale on the Challenges of Independent Publishing — The Writing Coach 040

Welcome to The Writing Coach. On this podcast, I speak with the instructors, editors, coaches, and mentors that help writers and authors create their art, build their audience, and sell their work.

In episode 40 of The Writing Coach, I speak with author Ron Vitale.

Ron is the author of Cinderella’s Secret Witch Diaries and A Witch’s Coven Novels series, a web technology director, lover of all things fantasy and sci-fi, marathon runner and dad. Ron loves to tell stories about the hero’s journey using creativity and fantasy.

During our conversation, Ron describes:

  • How storytelling helped him escape a challenging childhood without a father;
  • The years he wasted waiting for someone to validate him as a writer;
  • The long game approach he takes to his publishing career;
  • How he uses writing as a form of self-healing;
  • Why he decided to be completely transparent in his year-end wrap up article, despite having lost money in 2016;
  • And much more!
