Ladey Adey Show


What's the Best Relationship between Author and Reader?

Ladey explores the relationship between Author and Reader—the good relationships and the not so good.  She has received some great responses from some Authors in the past, like Catherine Cookson and she shares this story in this podcast.

This leads to the best ways to engage more fully with readers.

  • Does an Author have a responsibility to their Readers when they are contacted?
  • As a Reader what sort of response would you like from a favourite Author?
  • As an Author how can you maintain good relationships with your readers?

Ladey also explores Beta Reading and Crowd-funding as to how these actions can help Authors.
