Collaboration and coffee fueled an amazing Sci Fi world building event in Seattle this past weekend and the Career Authors were excited to invite the attendees on the podcast for a candid and fascinating conversation.

Exhilarated and exhausted from hosting Sci Fi Seattle, the guys reflect on an amazing time in an incredible city, Seattle, Washington. The iconic Space Needle inspired a space opera anthology project that will be published by Molten Universe Media in early 2020.

The Career Author Podcast is a podcast where co-authors J. Thorn and Zach Bohannon share their struggles and successes as full-time authors, advice for improving your writing craft, and honest discussions of what it takes to build a successful career as an author.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • How collaboration works when you’ve never worked with anyone before.
  • Why pushing beyond your comfort zone can be a good thing.
  • What Zach and J. do when trying to decide how to come up with a story idea.
  • Where you can find the best coffee in Seattle.
  • What happens when co-authors disagree on a story idea.
  • How collaboration can develop a skill set that can be used on solo projects.

Also, discover why orange zest in a latte can change your life.
