About the Guests Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant
Johnny B. Truant is a co-host of the top-rated Self Publishing Podcast, co-author of the #1 Marketing bestseller Write. Publish. Repeat: The No-Luck-Required Guide to Self-Publishing Success, and the author of well over 3 million words of popular fiction.
Sean Platt is a bestselling author, entrepreneur, speaker, founder of the Sterling & Stone Story Studio, and co-author (with Johnny B. Truant and David Wright) of Write. Publish. Repeat., the well-loved self-publishing industry guide.
Johnny and Sean along with David Wright (#1 horror author of the Yesterday’s Gone series) also launched Fiction Unboxed in 2014 — a record-setting Kickstarter project in which Johnny and Sean wrote a full-length novel in 30 days, starting without any ideas or genre, in front of a live audience, sharing every detail of the process including story meetings, emails, and raw story drafts.
The novel birthed through Fiction Unboxed (The Dream Engine, first in the Blunderbuss/Alterra series) went on to spawn what the Sterling & Stone team calls “open-source fiction”: an open story world in which any author may write and publish without requiring permission and without paying royalties to the world’s creators.
Johnny’s fiction works (mostly co-authored with Sean Platt) include the Invasion series, the political sci-fi serial The Beam, the fantasy/western mash-up Unicorn Western books, the satirical Fat Vampire series, the literary mindbender Axis of Aaron, and too many others to count.
Johnny, Sean, and David host their trendsetting, boundary-pushing podcasts every week on YouTube, iTunes, and their independent author website at: http://sterlingandstone.net/
