I’m celebrating ONE YEAR running already! Tuesday, November 29th was my special one year podiversary episode! In it, I give you a one-year-late intro (don’t ask, just listen 😂), answer some questions ya’ll have asked about me, tell you what writing projects I’m currently working on, give a wee dedication and shoutouts and thanks, and then I highlight some fabulous advice from guests I’ve hosted over the past year. I wish I had time to highlight all my amazing guests! I’m so excited about how the pod will grow in its second year. There are so many amazing authors and literary agent sessions booked already!
If you’d told me in the fall of 2020 that a year from then, I’d start a writing podcast, I’d have laughed at you. But… here we are. 😂 What began as me wanting to make my blog posts more accesible for folks quickly became a full-fledged podcast where I provide tips and advice about things I’ve learned have worked for me and many others as well as guest interviews. These interviews are with seasoned authors with one or several books published via indie or traditionally, or writers who are just learning the ropes. I also occasionally have industry professionals hop on to talk about all things writing and publishing, like #AskAgent sessions where writers send in questions they have about traditional publishing, interviews with agents and acquisitions editors, etc. I also feature booksellers, writing app designers, and other industry-related guests. I’m so happy to be able to give back to the #WritingCommunity in such a fun way!
Something new I’ve started in late 2022 is a short segment called On This Day in Literary History. Whatever day the episode is airing, I pick out an interesting literary-related event and talk about it and will sometimes use that as a segue into writing advice or something to get you thinking about how it might apply to your own writing. It’s been really fun to find out all these cool facts!
I love talking to writers about their journeys. What works for them, what struggles they’ve had, how the publishing process has been, how they got their agent or book deal, what advice they have for writers, etc. I also love celebrating success with writers, like the release of a new book, signing a contract with an agent or publisher, getting full requests on queries, getting short stories accepted, etc.
You’ll also hear news about upcoming events, activities, contests, webinars, etc. that I’m hosting or involved in. Occasionally, I have pitch critique sessions where writers send in pitches for me to critique on the show. Now, to keep this as interactive as possible, I’m adding listener questions, book recommendations, and shoutouts to the table! Click the appropriate link above to fill out a short form that allows you to send in a question or send a voice memo that I can air on the pod!
Where you can listen:
I hope you enjoy and learn from it, I hope you share it with your writer friends, and I hope to continue to build up this community of #badasswriters. If you’ve enjoyed any of the episodes, I would LOVE IT if you would take a moment to review it wherever you listen! Reviews help the podcast be seen by other writers and is so appreciated because my main goal is to reach as many creatives as possible to help them on their journeys! ♥️
I’ve also started a You Tube page where I might post the occasional video! There’s literally only one video there now but check it out and subscribe so you don’t miss anything! My first video is with author Taylor Grothe where we chat about moodboards, and she takes us through a guided tutorial on how to create them.
Aside from the podcast, you might know I’m also a co-founder/organizer/host of #MoodPitch, a huge Twitter pitch event connecting writers with agents, publishers, & other writers. I’m heavily involved in the Twitter writing community & post daily writing questions under #kfoxxdaily to help writers think critically about their projects. On top of this, I’m an editor (Foxx Editorial) who dedicates so much time to my clients’ work, and somehow, some way, I find time to work on my own writing projects. To boot, I’m a single mom of 5 amazing kids.

As always, keep being badass! 🙌🏻
