Joanna Penn, Author
Welcome to Writer Chat Wednesday where each week I get inside the mind of some of my favorite authors. This week I have a very special Writer Chat, via Skype, with British author Joanna Penn. If aren't yet familiar with Joanna's work, let me be the first to introduce you to this fabulous author. Eavesdrop on our Skype Chat which took place February 2, 2012:

Joanna Penn is the author the thriller Arkane series. Her first book in the series, is Pentacost.

Pentacost was released January 6, 2011. Joanna's most recent release is Prophecy.

  1. Thanks so much for having me Natalie!

    1. You're very welcome. It was fun! I hope you'll come back when your next Arkane novel comes out ; D

  2. Fantastic author interview style: very casual and inviting, like sharing tea with a friend :)

    J.K. Rowling, brilliant indeed, like George Lucas-brilliant. He held onto his merchandising rights from teh beginning, as she did with her digital rights. Authors, remember the legal phrase that could strike your future like a rattlesnake from under a rock: "all formats known and to become known".


    1. Thank you Jenny! Yes, authors need to be savvy. The urge to get the book deal is so great and many work so long and hard to get it that it's like a scene from Faust; like writers will sign anything shoved in front of them! Some like Lucas & Rowling were smart & it paid off for them.
