Ep 122 - Read Between the Lines
Most people finish writing a thesis and head towards tequila, Kinga Jenetics turned to self-publication instead. Realising she could put her work out there without a third party, Kinga wondered why other writers were left waiting? PublishDrive was created in 2014 as an act of creative autonomy, allowing authors to distribute their work without having to push for it to live outside their own pages. In this interview, Kinga explains how she got her start, the biggest failure of her career and why she refused to work for corporations and instead pursue her idea.
Writers spend their days wondering if they can write, thinking about what they could write and reading the words of other writers before they even start writing. The process is less go and more start-stop
Kinga Jentetics wasn’t too interested in waiting. After completing her thesis, the thought of it all ending at submission made her stop to ask: why? And start to consider how she could stretch the time she spent writing it beyond the 5pm deadline.
The answer was self-publishing, a thought that led to the creation of PublishDrive: a publishing company of sorts giving Authors creative autonomy by allowing them to distribute their work over 400 stores worldwide, including Amazon, Apple Books, Google Play Books, and Barnes & Noble.
In this episode, Kinga discusses why she left the corporate world to pursue her ideas, the three things she wishes she knew before she started and how she built PublishDrive from the ground up.
