So you think you can write a book?  If it’s fiction, it will take more than a vague idea of characters and plot and locations.  And if non-fiction, you’re in for real research because once that type is set, it’s too late for a rewrite.

So how do professional writers do it?  And why are some wildly successful and others never get the attention and money they crave?

Bizgnus talks with authors all the time.  Usually it’s about what’s in their books.  But in this Bizgnus Interview podcast we talk about how it’s done with Los Angeles-based writer Justin DiPego.

“If you want to be a professional, you’ve got to treat it like a job,” Mr. DiPego says. “That seemed so pedestrian to me when I was a young artist. But it turns out it’s so important.”

Mr. DiPego’s newest book is a modern-day adult illustrated fantasy novel, “Wrong Side of a Workingman ,” DiPego Now Entertainment (May 13, 2022).
