Michael Stackpole explained during an interview with us at the Central Coast Writers Conference. A writer, game designer, podcaster, and regular conference speaker, Stackpole had an answer at the ready.
Stackpole has more than one agent at this point in his career, including a bi-coastal arrangement that gives him representation with publishing houses in New York and the television and film industry in Los Angeles. In fact, with more than 40 novels under his belt, including the wildly popular I, JEDI and ROGUE SQUADRON Star Wars Universe Books, Stackpole has boots on the ground just about everywhere.
Perhaps that’s how he became a multiple New York Times Best-Selling Author, Parsec award-winner for “Best Podcast Short Story,” Topps’s selection for Best Star Wars Comic Book Writer, and an induction into the Academy Gaming Arts and Design Hall of Fame.
Those accolades alone should convince you that his advice is good!
The more you know, the better luck you’ll have. Happy hunting,
