To start, here’s a very short promo for my podcast when my guest was Jody Sperling, host of the marketing podcast for writers, Cre8 Collabor8. If you like it, check out his Twitter. (And, obviously, keep reading…)
So, I’m a writer with a podcast…you’re a writer with a podcast…
As you may or may not know (or care…), I host the podcast Creative Ops. It’s a podcast for creative people. Business, movies and tv, podcasters, writers, comedians, artists, and more come on and talk about how their found their groove and what their creative process looks like.
Anywho, I had Jody Sperling on recently. He’s a writer and hosts a podcast called Cre8 Collabor8, which is for writers who either like and/or have to be their own marketers. He gets into social media strategy, writing process, and where/how to promote yourself.
Jody Sperling has a really informative AND fun to listen to podcast called Cre8 Collabor8. He talks with guests about marketing and social media practices (among other things) that work to get your book to an audience.
Jody is an agented fiction writer with an MFA (masters in fine arts–he can teach college…) in writing. He's from Colorado, but lives with his wife (who is from Chicago (it's a whole thing and we get into it)) in Nebraska, where they're raising their kids to be Cubs fans.
Go to http://www.cre8collabor8.com for all things Jody's podcast, and get a peek at some of his writing that appeared in BULL called "Valesco".

But the podcasting excitement doesn’t stop there…
We were on each other’s podcasts!
I was fortunate enough to be a guest on his podcast after he was on mine.
(Well, technically he interviewed me first, but I beat him to the drop. Mwah-ha-ha!)
Listen as he gets confounded by my lack of knowledge and strange ideas about selling my book in pot shops. And yes, by pot I mean the devil’s lettuce, not a home for a plant.
Do I have no f**king clue what I’m doing, or will he see the method behind my madness?
