A Great Podcast for Writers

Hey folks! I just released a podcast with the inimitable Jody Sperling!

See/hear more on the Creative Ops YouTube channel!

We talked about growing up, life struggles, finding your creative voice, and trying to make it as a writer/podcaster.

Listen here:

Ep.65 | Jody Sperling – Writer & Host of (The Reluctant Book Marketer) Creative Ops

Jody Sperling was successfully playing the real estate game when he decided to sell his properties one by one and commit to writing and podcasting. Crazy, right? Crazy like a FOX! Jody's podcast, THE RELUCTANT BOOK MARKETER, gives authors, new and experienced, tools to better market their books (thereby doing better business and growing their audience). Get a peek at some of Jody's writing that appeared in BULL called "Valesco". Find Jody on Twitter: @jodyjsperling  .   .   . Thanks for listening! For more info on Creative Ops, OR if you're interested in my novel Switchers, check out all the links and info at http://www.christophertallon.com.

About Jody Sperling

Jody Sperling – writer, Cubs fan, and podcast host

Bio from cre8collabor8 (.com)

Jody Sperling writes fiction. He’s spent twenty years dreaming of the phone call from FSG, accepting his novel for publication, but after landing a literary agent in 2019 and failing to woo publishers, Jody’s dream wilted, and while he never quit writing and reading, by the end of 2021, he’d so completely lost track of his purpose that he’d amassed a portfolio of rental houses and was toying with starting a short-term rental business. Then he had a vision of all the people who, like him, had pursued their dream of publishing only to find themselves disillusioned and defeated. That’s the day he decided to found cre8 collabor8, a podcast and publishing platform designed to help other wrestling writers tell their story, improve their craft, and find a path to publication. Through a creative collaboration, Jody is committed to bringing those like him support, encouragement, income, and most importantly, an audience, because what’s the point of telling a story if nobody’s paying attention?

Here’s the most recent episodes from Jody Sperling’s podcast cre8 collabor8:

Building A Loyal Readership with Gordon Carroll TRBM

Can you imagine spending almost $300.00 on ads every single day? For perspective, that would be $109,500.00 spending on ads alone. Most people don’t earn that money in a year!Gordon Carroll is spending that kind of money to put his books in front of readers and he’s clearing high 5-figures every year doing that.I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, if you spend $100,000+, you’re paying an employee or three to make an honest living, delighting 10,000 readers a year, and supporting your life and family in an uncommon way. Don’t tell me writing isn’t a great business.Gordon and I traverse a lot of ground in this conversation, but the heart of our discussion is about writing quality books and advertising those books to readers who love what we bring to the table.
