Episode 37: Ricky White, Rick Pine

 

Hi! Today I’ll be reading from indie author Ricky White (nonfiction), who also is preparing to publish post-apocalyptic/dystopian fiction as Rick Pine! I’m particularly interested in this split-personality career, because it’s one of the first I’ve come across wherein the nonfiction is not marketed toward other writers (like that of Chris Fox or Joanna Penn). Check it out!

Reminder: these readings do not come from official audiobooks, and are presented here with the author’s consent. You can find Ricky White’s non-fiction healthcare and AS related blog here. He also has an Amazon Author Page, linked here. And you can find the non-profit he co-chairs, Walk AS One, here.

You can find and follow Rick Pine’s fiction personna here on Twitter.

That’s all for now! Come back next week for another indie author reading, and don’t forget to follow and rate the show 🙂 (link to iTunes on the right).
