I S Belle (GenZ) on social media for authors

This is a Dark Matter Zine podcast and I’m your host Nalini Haynes. In this podcast a GenZ author, I S Belle, tells us about social media for authors.

Dark Matter Zine Acknowledges this recording is taking place on the unceded Country of the Bunurong Peoples’ of the Kulin Nation as Traditional Owners and Custodians of this Country. I pay my respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

Introducing Isabelle aka I S Belle

I S Belle is a Young Adult author living in New Zealand. She works in a bookstore and stops to pat dogs in the street. And she has a Creative Writing Masters from the International Institute of Modern Letters. On Tiktok, Isabelle is @i.s.belle_writes, and she’s on Instagram too. If you want to find Isabelle and her book, hit her LinkTree. It has all the shiny buttons.

In a recent podcast we discussed Isabelle’s debut novel, Zombabe. This week she’s back to discuss publishing and social media for authors. Welcome Isabelle.

Interview notes

Isabelle previously appeared on DMZ to discuss her kick-ass coming of age zombie story with a difference. Her books are novels not graphic novels, although I’d love to see them in all the different mediums. Isabelle talks about why she’s planning to change her book covers, which is part of social media for authors in the previous podcast.

  • Publishing, self publishing
  • Judging a book by its cover: Zombabe mistaken for a graphic novel
  • Social media: what, why, how

Isabelle writes for other websites including this article on minotaur and why IT2 inspired Zombabe.

Thanks

Thank you to today’s guest, Isabelle who writes under the IS Belle. This has been a Dark Matter Zine podcast, and I’m your host Nalini Haynes. Thank you for listening, stay safe and have fun.

Also, read Isabelle’s books. Heaps of fun.

Acknowledgement of Country

Dark Matter Zine Acknowledges this recording is taking place on the unceded Country of the Bunurong Peoples’ of the Kulin Nation as Traditional Owners and Custodians of this Country. I pay my respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

(I have occasionally acknowledged Country in podcasts. This year I aim to lift my game in many areas, so I plan to Acknowledge Country in every podcast. An Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners can be done by anyone. It’s a way of showing awareness of, and respect for, the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of the land where a meeting or event is held. For more information about Country and respect for Australia’s First Nations, read this post that also has links to useful websites.)

I S Belle, the author, smiles at the camera. She has short brown hair, glasses, a black tee with a bib and braces covered with strawberries and flowers.
