Bestselling Author Interviews

Photo of Man with Play Button to Listen to Bestselling Author InterviewsListening to bestselling author interviews is one of the best ways to discover how to become a bestselling author. Even if you’re not interested in becoming a bestselling author, every author I’ve ever talked to wants to reach a bigger audience. And, listening to authors whose books you’ve read and admire is, well, fun. I also just added a comment area at the bottom of this page so you can post questions and/or comments.

Scroll below for interviews with bestselling authors like Mary Higgins Clark (our latest). Listen on your computer OR download the files to a portable electronic device. You can ALSO use the social media share bar on this webpage to share the interviews with others who might appreciate them.

Enjoy, and remember…

Getting published isn’t luck,
it’s a decision.

  2. Hi Mark,

    I signed up for the one-on-one coaching call before the holidays and have finally gotten my time schedule more under control. I am trying to find your scheduler to see what time is available for us to talk. Where is the link?

    I have written a book, and would like to publish it traditionally. It seems that is very difficult; many companies require an agent or are not accepting new manuscripts. I am considering starting a business built around the book, but would like your input.

      Hi Scott,

      I don’t refer specific literary agents to authors, here on my website, for a variety of reasons (but the main reason is that it’s a lot like dating, a very subjective process). But you can easily find the best agents for you by using my Directory of Literary Agents that you can access here (no charge): http://literary-agents.com/directory-literary-agents/.

      You should also (if you haven’t already done so) click here to access to all the valuable resources I have about getting an agent in my private, members-only area (no charge): https://thebestsellingauthor.com/membership/. Once you’ve entered your name and email address there, click on the link that says, “Audio Training Library”. Then you’ll see my main audio training (and text transcript), which reveals the 7 Insider Secrets You Need to Know to Get a Top Literary Agent, Publisher, and Book Deal. That will increase your chances of getting what you want if/when you start querying agents.

      If you want help with anything else, you can post more questions for me online here: https://thebestsellingauthor.com/ask/. And you can register for an introductory coaching call with me here: https://thebestsellingauthor.com/coaching/intro-call/. Either way, I’m looking forward to learning more about you and your work.

      All my best and have a good night,

      – Mark
