Self-Publishing And Marketing Literary Fiction With Jane Davis

6 thoughts on “Self-Publishing And Marketing Literary Fiction With Jane Davis

  1. My work was stolen and put on Google for free. My sales dried up. I took them off amazon and rewrote my entire series. 125k to 280k. Took a few years to do. Then I've just written a book before the old one. 200k. Should release them 2020. 😎

  2. Hello. I am a novice writer. I write short stories and novels. I have published my first book on amazon site (the gates opener. Miracle birth book 1). Three years ago. I have been working in media and I have not been read by anyone. What do you advise me to read and spread.?

  3. Re Indie publishers: 'I was walking into a room of absolute professionals' – I wanted to cheer when Jane Davis spoke of her first meeting with authors who'd taken publishing into their own hands back in the heady days of 2010.

  4. This is a great interview. Literary Fiction is effectively its own genre, but I've also noticed that books aren't really categorised as Literary Fiction. I looked at my copies of Gone With The Wind, some of the Daphne du Maurier novels, and a few others. They're all under General.

    And how interesting that Jane uses the term Contemporary. Within YA, that term is widely used, but not so much for Adult Fiction.

    My difficulty is that I'm writing Modern Historical Fiction, and that appears not to be an official term. My fiction doesn't necessarily fit into conventional categories, but I somehow feel uncomfortable with using the term Literary Fiction, in relation to my own work. I would consider using Historical Fiction, but stories set in the 1980s aren't universally accepted, within Historical Fiction.

    It feels like I'm making my life hard. I would much rather write in a genre – if I can learn to accept the boundaries…! 😃💝

  5. Such a great interview, Joanna! I'd love to see more Jane Davis on your show in the future if/whenever possible. Thanks so much for this. 😀

  6. Faking classical music vocals (if you are untrained at it), faking classical dance, faking bonhomie or empathy; and finally, faking laughter – all fall flat and appear painfully "cringe-worthy" when viewed on a screen.
