Interview with Penny Reid, self-published author of the Winston Brothers and Knitting in the City Series

| E:89

Several of our co-workers absolutely adore Penny Reid and her Winston Brothers and Knitting in the City series and suggested we interview her. After speaking with her for half an hour, Penny now has two new fans in both Adam and Jill. Penny is the first self-published author to be on the Professional Book Nerds podcast and she's an incredibly successful self-published author at that, so along with taking us through her writing process she also explains all the work that goes into being a self-published author as well.

Penny writes what she calls "smart romance" and even if you're not a romance reader, we highly recommend listening to this delightful author interview and checking her books out.
