“There’s a difference between being cliché and taking a story that’s familiar but making it your own.” – Riley Tune


Today’s featured bestselling fantasy author is lifter of weights, video game lover, and pizza aficionado, Riley Tune. Riley and I talk about his outlook on making character/villains feel real, other great tips about indie authorship that most folks don’t talk about and how he got kicked out of Barnes & Noble. This is one episode that you don’t want to miss!


Key Things You’ll Learn:

What to keep in mind when creating stories for all of the characters in your books.

Why Harry Potter & X-Men are the exact same story.

Why authors are leaving money on the table by not having their books in audiobook form.

Ways to work with a voice actor for your audiobooks.

What Riley learned the hard way when he started writing.

Why it’s important to have beta-readers.
