In this episode, Jenn tells Rekka about her experience as a visual artist and the general malaise that drove her to seek out a more fulfilling career with writing, how she came to find her current agent, Sam Morgan of Foundry, sell her book rights to TOR, and her film rights to Annapurna Television!
Jenn’s story is the dream of many genre fiction authors and while her experience is definitely not typical, it’s quite an inspiration!
Jenn’s advice for writers:
- your readers don’t need to know every bit of world-building you’ve come up with
- be yourself in your agent queries
- don’t give up
Check out the interview and, if you haven’t already, make sure you pick up a copy of The Ruin of Kings, available at all fine booksellers and online book marketplaces.
Jenn Lyons has been accused of making epic fantasy fun again, no matter how dark the situation gets, so make sure you don’t pass on this one!
