An Interview with Jeffrey Bardwell


Had to put that out there. Now, on with the rest of the post. In my interview today, I am talking to Jeffrey Bardwell, author of the Rotten Magic series.

What advice would you give to your younger self?
Don't be afraid to fail. Also, you look good with a beard: grow it out sooner.

What do you do to get book reviews?
I have a responsive ARC mailing list of awesome folks. I also send requests to genre-specific book bloggers.

Where can you see yourself in 5 years time?
I see myself with a large backlog of ebooks on the market and several finished series under my belt. Once I've gotten to a stable point in my career, I think I'd like to try filking (fantasy music festivals).

Do you have any advice for other authors on how to market their books?
Variety truly is the spice of life. Try everything at least once. Now for the useful portion of this answer: Bookbub, AMS ads, and Facebook are supposedly the big three, but you can also run ads on google directly and many smaller genre-specific venues. Some are little used, such as Project Wonderful, which pops your ads on webcomics. Whatever you choose, I suggest picking venues that cater to your specific audience.

What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
Never give up, never be afraid to try, and never succumb to the fear you're stuck on one beaten path.
Wow! Thank you for taking the time to talk to me.

Jeffrey Bardwell wrote his first fantasy epic when he was 7 years old: a thrilling single page adventure. Subsequent epics have grown and matured alongside their Author. He devours fantasy and science fiction novels and is most comfortable basking near a warm wood stove. When not writing, Jeffrey enjoys cooking, gardening, and shooing baby dragons from the compost bin.
The author lives on a farm and in a prior life worked as a community ecologist. He is overfond of puns and alliterations. He is also an unabashed history and mythology enthusiast and would love to hear from you.
