Writing Methods, Environments, and Promotion! Oh My!

This week on Hide and Create, Moses Siregar, Jordan Ellinger, Diana Rowland and Joshua Essoe continue the discussion with Moses on previous subjects: writing methods, writing environments, and self-promotion.

Moses shares some valuable insights on his experience with indie publishing his novel The Black God’s War, and talks about developing the setting for his latest novella “The Children of Wood and Wind”. Diana and Jordan debate how detailed you should make your settings, while Joshua expands on creating the perfect writing environment.
