EP425: MATT CAIN — “Write with Heart and Humour.”

Matt Cain endured rejections from thirty agents and fifty publishers before getting his debut novel published… and then it didn’t work out. Matt tells us how he made an extraordinary comeback, breaking crowdfunding records with The Madonna of Bolton, having a smash with The Secret Life of Albert Entwistle, and now he’s back with Becoming Ted, his latest heartwarming novel about following your dreams.
And in the extended version for Academy members and podcast Patrons, the Two Marks discuss writing with an authentic voice, titles, rejection, and much more!
WE DISCUSS…
  • The importance of an author’s authentic voice
  • Why gay fiction doesn’t need to be literary and serious to sell
  • And how, after rejection and failure, to make a spectacular comeback…

Just a heads up — there are a few sweary moments.
