I’m still working my way through my new book, so here’s a collection of podcasts that focus more on the business side of being a writer—important for both indies and traditionally published authors to know, since either way, being a published author means being a small business owner. Also, I’ve posted about most these podcasts somewhere before, but not in in a collection with this focus, so I’m doing it anyway.
The Creative Penn is hosted by Joanna Penn, a veteran of indie publishing. Her podcasts interview other authors, both fiction and non-fiction, and they discuss everything.
Ask the Bards is hosted by Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne, both traditionally published authors. They answer questions about writing, both craft and business.
UPDATE: Ask the Bards has stopped updating at 14 episodes, but the ones where the authors plot out a book live, in real time, are still worth the listen.
Ditch Diggers is hosted by Mur Lafferty and Matt Wallace. Mur has self published but it wasn’t for her, so she’s traditionally published. Matt traditionally publishes his books, but is also a screenwriter. This podcast is all about the business.
Lesbians Who Write is hosted by Clare Lydon and T.B. Markinson, both independently published authors. They talk about all things writing, including business, and what it’s like to be a full-time writer.
