S02 E01 Amy Heydenrych
Amy is the author of Shame On You and The Pact, and the co-author of Chasing Marian. She has a new book forthcoming from Karavan Press soon. Amy joins Fiona and Gail to share the secrets of successfully querying overseas literary agents as a young South African who started out with no connections in the industry.
Amy also talks about how writing is a career with a high failure rate, and how to pick yourself up and start over again when your career strikes a low point.
Fiona talks about how letting initial rejections get you down, even if they are brutal. Gail talks about using snippets of free time throughout her day to get a few hundred words of writing done.
Fiona and Gail learned a huge amount from Amy and can't wait to share this intel with their listeners.
