Indie Breakouts with ABNA Grand Prize Winner Rysa Walker (SPP #124)

This week the guys talked to Rysa (with a Y) Walker about self publishing, YA, and time travel. Loads of good stuff here!
Sean and Dave were celebrating the completion of Yesterday’s Gone Season 5 at the start of the episode. If you’re a YG fan, you’ll be happy to know that’s coming out very soon. The guys seem very proud of the story, so you’ll certainly enjoy it.
Johnny, on a different note, is actually considering using 99 designs to help him design a tattoo. How cool is that? Weigh in with a comment if you support that idea.
Finally, when Rysa got on, she talked about self publishing and working with Amazon to publish. She also talked about what kind of language should and shouldn’t go into YA. There was also some fun time-travel talk, which can’t help but be totally amusing.
Give this show a listen and you’ll quickly see why Rysa is destined to be an instant favorite SPP guest!

    If Rysa Walker is a pen name, I wonder how she can use it as her personal Facebook page? I wanted to set up a Facebook account with a pen name but Facebook makes you use your real name. Facebook is closing thousands of accounts where people are using fake names. I know I can use a Facebook page (as Rysa does for her book) but she is actually using her pen name for her personal page where you can friend her. How did she get Facebook to allow her to use her pen name? Anyone else using a pen name on a personal Facebook page?

    I’ve been assuming that you guys are eventually going to fix the podcast descriptions that show up for long-time iTunes subscribers… but maybe you don’t know that they’re still broken? Ever since early August, the show notes just say “We’ve moved!” Etc. No details about the show, the guest, etc. Do I need to delete that subscription and resubscribe or something? Just checking…
