Douglas Pratt and Nicholas Harvey

What does it take to make it in the intensely competitive author world these days?

Doug and Nick are the first to admit that as bestselling full time authors, they're still learning, adjusting, and making mistakes every day!

Which is why they host accomplished guests who share their personal paths to success in a light-hearted chat show format.

Whether you're a new author getting started, an experienced veteran, or a reader who is interested in what happens behind the scenes, each episode offers you insightful info from guests who have forged a successful career with their books.

Expect a fun and relaxed show which is generally PG-13, but occasional R-rated language does occur.
