The Author Revolution™ Podcast
The Truth About Reading in Your Genre
March 10, 2021
Most authors, at least, most that I've talked to, are also readers. However, one interesting thing that happens when they start writing... they stop reading! Why is this? Most of the time, it comes down to fear. They're afraid their own work might be "tainted" or they could accidentally plagiarize. In today's podcast episode, I want to talk about reading in our own genre. Should we be doing it? Or is it a minefield for potential lawsuits? Well, I'll let you be the judge. ;) Be sure to check out the show notes by going to authorrevolution.org/71.
