It’s our 100th podcast and it’s with Denny S. Bryce (Wild Women and the Blues, Kensington Books, March 2021). A former professional dancer as well as a marketing entrepreneur, Denny first got acquainted with agents who judged RWA writing contests she entered and eventually chose her agent over others because she was much more interested in Denny’s over-all writing and career goals rather than with a single book. We discuss how it’s important to get your name out in the writing community long before you finish your book, how you should always be writing other books while your first is on submission, how having her publication date delayed because of the pandemic turned out to be a blessing, and how both her grandmother’s old photos and her boss at a NY restaurant provided the inspiration for her debut. And stay tuned to the end to learn about her two upcoming novels and the now famous actor she once went out with.
Denny S. Bryce is an award-winning author and three-time RWA Golden Heart® finalist, including twice for Wild Women and the Blues. The former professional dancer and public relations executive is a book critic for NPR Books and also has written for Frolic Media, USA Today, and Harper’s Bazaar. A member of the Historical Novel Society (HNS), Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA), Novelists, INC., and The Tall Poppies, the former Chicagoan currently resides in Savannah, GA.
