This week on the podcast, we spoke with Hanna Alkaf, author of THE WEIGHT OF OUR SKY (Salaam Reads/Simon & Schuster, 2019), about multiple agent offers–managing your writing career and writing friendships when you don’t live in the United States–and the amazing story of her role in Malaysia’s most recent election.
We can’t even tell you how much we loved talking with Hanna. Her story of everyone working together to make voting possible–her endless enthusiasm for writers and the writing community–and her advice for those hoping to address important issues in successful, enjoyable books, is more than we could have ever asked for. Take a listen! We felt so much better about the world after this conversation, and think you will too.
We left this talk feeling so hopeful for the world–and trust you will, too.
