Have you ever had someone ask you what you did and lose all interest when you say you write fantasy? What is with that? A strange prejudice lingers around fantasy writing and writers.

In this episode, Autumn and Jesper discuss why there is a perception fantasy writers aren’t “real” writers, some facts and stats on fantasy stories and writers, why the perception might be changing, and what to do if you encounter it!

As we mention in the show, TODAY is release day for our three new books on developing story ideas, and plotting. Pick them up at:
