About The Self-Publishing Podcast Team ...

(We've Heard We're Blokeish)

Sean Platt

Co-founder: Collective Inkwell, Realm & Sands
In addition to authoring dark horror and sci-fi with Dave at CI and  genre benders with Johnny at Realm & Sands, Sean writes for children under the name Guy Incognito, and has more than his share of nose. He has indie-published more than two dozen fiction titles. Nonfiction credits include the freelancer’s guide, Writing Online, the indie how-to Write. Publish. Repeat., and the memoir Writer Dad. Sean lives in Austin, TX with his wife, daughter, and son.

Johnny B. Truant

Co-Founder of Realm & Sands
Before Realm & Sands, Johnny wrote Fat Vampire and The Bialy Pimps. Then, Sean convinced him it was way more fun to write collaboratively and publish more than a million words in a year. He (mostly) agreed, and since then they’ve written Unicorn Western, The Beam, Robot Proletariat, Cursed, Namaste, and the three LOL comedies together. Johnny would like to live in Austin, but is unfortunately stuck in Ohio for the time being.

David W. Wright

Co-Founder of Collective Inkwell
Though he is Eeyore to Sean’s unrelenting Tigger, the duo have managed to reinvent serialized fiction on Amazon with their golden age of TV inspired serials, Yesterday’s Gone, WhiteSpace, ForNevermore, and Available Darkness. We know nothing more about Dave other than that he is involved in [REDACTED], lives in [REDACTED] with [REDACTED], is personally responsible for [REDACTED], and carries a decoy wallet at all times.
