In this episode we’re joined by Arlynn Lake (@DrWhoWhatWhyHow) to talk about getting your story started, some of her own work, the writer’s retreat she’s hosting in August. We even are visited by a special guest!

I did this interview with Gabriella Meidar. She was the first stranger who hired me and has remained a great client and collaborator ever since. We talk about her various endeavors from Kindle publishing, to helping immigrants to Canada navigate the waters of a new country.
This has been one of my favorite long-term projects. The first book in this series is one of those that I cut my teeth as an editor on and finally we are nearing completion on volume three. Stay tuned here and at http://www.grailquestbooks.wordpress.com for more.
Holy shazbot, business has definitely picked up in the last couple of weeks. Here’s a partial list of what I have been or soon will be up to:
Mystery novel beta read
Another mystery novel beta read
Sci-fi novel review
Ghost writing a guide book
Writing a blurb for a band concert
Editing articles on direct response marketing
Writing a series on restaurant marketing
Writing an article on interview performance
In the near future, I’ll also be interviewing one of my oldest clients, the very first stranger to take a chance on my work. I’m really looking forward to that one.
Also for the next few weeks, I may not be very present on the internet more than is absolutely necessary. It’s basically the result of piles of extra work at the day job. Like extra work to the tune of 72hr weeks for the next month. So yeah, I’ll be posting and tweeting sporadically at best. After that, I’ll be back with a vengeance.
First, I apologize for not posting for a couple of weeks. It has been insanely busy here at Gingerman HQ. Second, I apologize as well for the lousy lighting in this video. We had a ton of technical difficulties to overcome on this one. Now on to more important things.
Deanna is one of the most talented writers I have had the pleasure to work with. I’ve only been able to fully edit one of her books and begin reading another but from what I can tell, both are excellent and in a class of their own. More than that, it would be best to let the interview do the talking.
