About
Hi! My name is Amy, aka CameoLover93, and I'm an author who specializes in creating serialized fiction.

I created this podcast to help out aspiring authors who're trying to break out onto the scene but are held back by questions like: where do I start, what apps should I upload my work to, how can I monetize my content, how do I build a fanbase from zero? And so on.

Having written online and experimented with various writing-related apps since 2012, I've learned a few things; what to do, what not to do, who to trust, and who to avoid.

And it'll all be talked about in this podcast.

I'm sure you've heard the saying that not every deal is a good deal... Well, in this episode, I'm going over bad deals that I made with shady companies that YOU should avoid (warning: I rant A LOT), and I'm also talking about some W's that I managed to take this year.

01 | Figuring Out What Type of Writer You Are
Episode 1: Figuring Out What Type of Writer You Are  In my opinion, there are two types of writers - a pantser and a plotter. In this episode, I’ll be going over what the terms mean, some pros/cons to each one, and why it’s important that you figure out which one you are before you start writing anything.  ► YouTube Version Of This Episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qf-HKso5qsY ► Social Media: https://linktr.ee/cameolover93 ► Support The Show: https://anchor.fm/cameolover93/support
