Publishing a debut novel during Covid-19
Eliza Clark on Boy Parts and lazy comparisons

We’re joined on the pod by Eliza Clark, the debut author of Boy Parts. Eliza talks to Steph about being published in her mid-20s, the inevitable comparisons with other authors and the series of unlikely events that led to publication. She also discusses how writing fan fiction in her teens helped hone her craft before embarking on her first book, as well as how Covid-19 has affected the book’s launch.

Hosted by Simon Jones and Steph McKenna.
