Who is Michael Anderle?
He’s that indie author who has reportedly made six figures… a month. How the %#%@** does he do that?
What does he write? A mash-up of paranormal, science fiction, and other genres. Trying to reduce the classification to a specific genre may be a bit of a challenge, as he explains he markets to one genre but fans take it beyond that category once the read deep into the series.
On this episode of Keystroke Medium Live, Michael talks about his books and his marketing methods and how he manages to produce so much content so quickly.
Once, not so long ago, in a land not so far away, Michael Anderle decided he wanted to write and publish books because it was on his bucket list. As a code writer, he already had insane typing skills and the habit of structured work. Coders, he explains, think about things in logical and progressive manner, which seems related to plotting and structuring a book. He also wanted to show his talented son, a writer, how to publish. Michael set about learning the best way to achieve his goal.
Flash forward a bit. During a vacation abroad he calculated that he could live on a certain amount of money and believed he could earn that income through writing. Now, in the present state of publishing, he has far surpassed his early goals and is teaching other writers how to not only follow in his footsteps, but to innovate and work in collaborative partnerships.
This show really gets into his creative process and his marketing genius, part of which is quite simple: figure out what readers want and give it to them.

Peter Cawdron, author of Mars Endeavor and Anomaly, recently enlightened the hosts of Keystroke Medium on several aspects of science fiction. From the well informed (he doesn’t like to call it hard) science fiction to the completely different, Men In Black-esque novel titled Alien Space Tentacle Porn.
Don’t let the title fool you, ASTP has a unique premise — like everything Cawdron writes. Check out the story description of Mars Endeavor if you have doubts. The mission planners prepared for every possible problem they could face on Mars except for disaster back on Earth.
Why should you listen to this episode of Keystroke Medium Live?
Cawdron articulately describes his writing process and goes deep into historical and societal issues that can be explored in the genre. There are some laughs, especially when one of the hosts admits what he first thought of at the mention of ASTP (it’s not what you think).
Join Peter Cawdron and the hosts of Keystroke Medium, Scott Moon and Josh Hayes, for talk about reading, writing, and everything in between.
What is Live?
Have you ever been part of those intense conversations about books that are, quite honestly, a little awkward for your friends who haven't read a book since high school? Did you think, of course Daenerys Tagaryen will walk through fire and tame a dragon? After years of talking to each other about what make stories great, Scott and Josh wanted to expand their knowledge and share what they learned with the world!
