Welcome Shawn Peters to The TufFish Show, a place to help writers and aspiring authors get out of their own way to leave a legacy by telling the stories they want to share through writing their own books and confidently sharing them with others. The writing process can be tough and the business side can feel scary, but TufFish makes both feel smoother and achievable.

When you think about getting feedback on your writing, whether it’s from an editor or a beta reader, do you feel excited or nervous? Do you feel overwhelmed with how to process all of the feedback you’ve received, so that you don’t miss anything? If any of these questions have run through your mind before now, let this conversation with Shawn Peters help you work through them. Shawn’s energy is vibrant, and he shared so much goodness not only about feedback and processing edits, but also structure and character development. And after you’ve listened, we’d love to hear how you incorporated his tips.

Shawn Peters has written a little bit about a lot of things in a lot of places. Ads for huge premium cable networks and all kinds of small businesses. Movie ideas that ended up on the shelf and domestic date-nights that ended up in the newspapers. Columns about fantasy sports and finally, a pair of books about a neurodiverse hero in the making. Shawn lives in Massachusetts with his wife who is a real superhero (aka a public school teacher), as well as their two children, a dog and a cat that might appear during this podcast if she decides to.

Shawn's debut MG adventure novel, The Unforgettable Logan Foster, was published on January 18th, 2022 by Harper Collins, and the paperback was released on November 8th, 2022. It’s currently nominated for The Rebecca Caudill Young Readers Award and The Bluestem Award. The sequel, The Unforgettable Logan Foster and the Shadow of Doubt, is out now as well.
