Rachel Abbott is one of the best-selling Kindle novelists in history. Her debut ‘Only the Innocent’ became a number 1 bestseller on Kindle, since then she’s published 11 books, sold over 4 million copies and been translated into 21 languages.
We talk about what changed when she got ‘properly’ published after that, and how an editor made her see her work in a different way. We chat about why she focuses mainly on writing psychological thrillers, and how her storytelling process has changed through 11 novels. You can hear about the business plan that she made to make sure her first books were noticed, sold and read.
Her new novel is ‘The Murder Game’, all about a group of friends who meet in Cornwall, where a murder mystery game becomes a bit too realistic. We chat about the colour-coded cards and images that she relies on to write books too.
