Lie To Yourself – The Worried Writer, Sarah Painter – JoinedUp#94

It’s episode 94 – our last one of the year and a proper Christmas Cracker with the lovely, talented and inspirational ‘Worried Writer’ herself, Sarah Painter. It’s been a couple of years since Sarah last visited the show and she has a ton of stuff to say about dealing with self-doubt, her writing process and the fact she now has a foot in both the indie and traditional publishing worlds.

Sarah writes contemporary fiction with a touch of magic, some historical fiction thrown in and has now produced an excellent non-fiction book – Stop Worrying and Start Writing. Before writing books, Sarah worked as a freelance magazine journalist, blogger and editor. Her debut, The Language of Spells, became a Kindle bestseller and was followed by The Secrets of Ghosts, The Garden of Magic and In The Light of What We See and more recently The Night Raven and Beneath The Water.

Follow her on Twitter @SarahRPainter and check out her website here. She also podcasts about writing (and interviews other authors and creative-types) at – which I can’t recommend enough.

Today’s Book Blogger’s Corner comes courtesy of Katherine Sunderland over at reviewing One Little Lie by previous guest, Sam Carrington. Follow Katherine on twitter @KatherineSunde3 and check out her blog here too.
