Author Damon Ferrell Marbut joins BookGoodies podcast host Deborah Carney for an interview about his books, how he started, advice for new and established authors.
Damon Ferrell Marbut is the author of Awake in the Mad World. He is currently working on his second novel in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he lives and works.
I’ve recently released my debut novel, *Awake in the Mad World, *after three years of reluctance and apprehension toward the publishing industry as it now exists, versus how I knew it growing up. My goal is to help others grow in confidence about how they will approach their own work being published, either by a press or publisher, or independently, as I have gone through this very recently. Your call for authors is exactly the conversation I hope to have with future students and writers.
Damon Ferrell Marbut says
Hi Deborah. I wanted to check in with you and thank you for your first contact with me regarding our podcast’s discussion of Awake in the Mad World. The novel is doing incredibly well right now, as a literary fiction, coming of age story released in a huge reading climate of YA, paranormal and fantasy. I wanted to take a moment this weekend to thank those who have helped me establish my novel’s voice in the reading community.
