Anthony invites his first guest on the show, the assistant editor of the Queens Chronicle, David Russell. Anthony and David discuss what living life as a writer entails and some of the rejection they faced when starting their careers. In this episode, Anthony shares his actual rejection letters with listeners and explains what they mean.
Anthony dives into the inner workings of his mind to help the audience find the inspiration for their first novel. He reveals the personal battles he fought that later helped him along in his journey to becoming a published author.
Becoming a published author is like pursuing a career as a professional athlete, many try, but few succeed. Even if you do manage to fall through the cracks, you have to make sure that your name and work will remain relevant to the world around you. I’m sure you have heard this before too, but you should take these words seriously because I will be able to hand you the key to your future if you use them wisely. In "Episode Zero" Anthony will help you test the waters before diving in on how to succeed in the world of publishing. This podcast was recorded on September 8th, 2020.
