S1 Ep1 - Real Talk on Bullying and Doing the Right Thing with Robert Gregory | May 4, 2020
I don't usually push anything unless I feel strongly about the quality and messaging. Way before COVID, there was a little girl who often got bullied and teased. She was a little off; didn't quite fit in; was the new girl... It didn't matter if it was a new school. A fresh start often meant a new set of mean kids. That little girl was me. And despite the hardships of my youth, I had unconditional love and support at home. My dad was my biggest advocate and I attribute his humor and love and often misplace faith in humanity for being the person I am today. I guess that's why CatDad and SuperMom speaks to me and why I want to get this book in as many hands as possible. It has bold lines, bold colors and bold messaging. Doing the right thing isn't always easy. Proceeds of Robert Gregory's kickstarter is being used to help send work to his local print shop. Check out the progress and throw in a dollar if you can.

28: Robert Gregory Browne Shows You How to Create Characters that Jump Off the Page
Write With Impact with Glenn Leibowitz
Robert Gregory Browne is a novelist who heads his own publishing firm, Braun Haus Media. Rob has been writing fiction for 30 years and has 19 novels under his belt, many of which were published by some of the biggest names in the business: St. Martin’s Press, Penguin/Dutton, and Harlequin. Before he started writing novels, Rob worked in the movie industry as a screenwriter. His thriller, Kiss Her Goodbye was produced for television by Sony/CBS. Several years ago he won the Nicholl Fellowship for screenwriting from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. The Nicholl Fellowship is a prestigious international screenwriting competition to identify and encourage talented new screenwriters. In our conversation, Rob explains why he decided to make the leap from traditional publishing to indie publishing several years ago, and the blow-out success he had with his first indie title, Trial Junkies. We then dive deep into one of the chapters in his new book, his first nonfiction title: Casting the Bones: An Indie Author’s Guide to the Craft of Fiction. The chapter we pick apart: Creating Characters that Jump Off the Page. For Rob, creating great characters is of paramount importance to the success of any novel, and in our conversation he shares the techniques he uses to write characters that feel real and keep the story moving quickly. He also discusses how he balances showing with telling, his sparse use of dialogue tags, his general aversion to creating detailed outlines, and other approaches he has developed over the course of his career.

TAB056: Refusing to Give Up as a Formula For Success, with Robert Gregory Browne
Robert Gregory Browne is the guest on this episode of The Author Biz podcast. Robert Gregory Browne What’s the secret to the success of your author business? I’ve been asking a version of that question to many of my recent guests and I love the way the answer to that single question sets the direction of the show. For today’s guest, screenwriter, turned traditionally published author, turned indie author, Robert Gregory Browne the answer was his unwillingness to give up. To keep persevering when success didn’t fall upon him immediately, the way we all hope it will. Robert kept at it, taking 19 years to achieve his first real success as a screenwriter and reinventing himself a few times along the way. Since becoming an indie author in 2012 Robert has either written or been involved in the writing of a dozen novels. He’s written his own books, he’s co-authored books, and he’s launched a fascinating new project, THE LINGER SERIES, which combines a story idea he had several years ago with an epiphany he had while binge-watching House of Cards on Netflix. In this 53 minute episode, we get into the value of not giving up, Robert’s willingness to experiment and his thoughts on the craft of writing, which he’s expressed in his new book, CASTING THE BONES, An Indie Authors Guide to the Craft of Fiction. Show Notes: Robert began writing when he was 16 and didn’t see his first success as a writer until age 35 when he sold a screenplay to Showtime. He sold his first novel at age 50 and credits never giving up as a chief reason for the success of his author business. Robert explains how and why he transitioned from traditional to indie publishing in 2012. We discuss the LINGER Series – A fascinating experiment in trying to determine if the binge-watching habits people have developed through watching would transfer to reading. We discuss CASTING THE BONES, Robert’s new book for authors. One of the points Robert makes in the book is that the best way to write is the way that works best for you. A discussion of the “show don’t tell” rule beginning authors try so hard to follow. Robert believes “show AND tell” is a better approach for many of us. The value of getting some distance from your work as a way of helping authors to determine if a book is ready to be published. The importance of making connections with other authors through conferences, events, and even social media. Robert shares his thoughts on the benefits and pitfalls of using Facebook as an author. Robert began using the “sign up and get a free e-book” technique that many authors are using to increase the size of their email list several months ago. He shares his experience using the technique. Robert shares his thoughts on what’s working now for authors and the value of publishing high-quality books and building your catalog.
