TAP038, Dave Chesson Discusses Writing, Editing, Formatting, and Collaborating with Atticus

The Authorpreneur Podcast - Writing & Self Publishing Tips

07-07-2022 • 59 mins

In previous podcast episodes, I've mentioned that I want this podcast to be free of interviews unless they are about how an author writes, outlines or writes without an outline. Today, I'm making an exception with this bonus interview because I believe the discussion will benefit you even if you're in the planning stages of writing your first novel.

As you can guess from the title of this show, I chatted with Dave Chesson from Kindlepreneur on writing, editing, formatting, and collaborating with Atticus. For those who don't know, Atticus is a brand new all-in-one writing software for writers launched at the end of 2021. That's when the reviews of the software first launched. One of the many things I like about Atticus is that the developers are making updates all the time, and these updates are free after the initial purchase of the programme. And they have a calendar available where you can see when certain features are due to be rolled out.

Before we get into the interview, here's a bit about Dave Chesson.

About Dave Chesson
Dave Chesson is a military veteran, husband, and father of three. But, when he's not doing Dad things, he's an avid book marketer. Dave works in publishing and book marketing and has been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, ALLi, Huffington Post, and Market Watch. And he's been blessed to have worked with many New York Times bestselling authors in multiple genres and topics, like Ted Dekker, Orson Scott Card, Kevin J. Anderson and more. He has also been a paid consultant to major publishing companies, helping with digital sales, advertisement methods and sales page optimisations.

On his website, kindlepreneur.com, you can find some fantastic apps, including the Amazon Book Sales Calculator, Book Description Generator, and QR Code Generator. But he's best known as the creator of Publisher Rocket and, now, Atticus.

So stay tuned for all of this and much more.
