Episode 79: A Different Path with Jody Clark

January 13, 2019

All In with Pauline Hawkins

Jody Clark.jpg

Jody Clark grew up in the Kittery and York area of southern Maine. Contrary to the traditional path, he started off writing screenplays; when that didn’t work out, he turned those stories into novels. He now has four novels to his credit, using stories from his life and the scenic locations from his beloved state as the backdrop for his fiction.

Three songs that would be on the soundtrack of his life: 1st song: “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure; 2nd song: “Pictures of You” by The Cure; 3rd song: “The World Is…” by Matthew Ryan.

To purchase copies of Jody’s books, go to: https://www.vacationlandbooks.com/

Post Production Note: There’s no denying that in order to be a writer, one must go all in. There’s no risk involved with having a great idea, but not everyone can turn those ideas into novels and then release them into the world. In this way, Jody Clark is a great example of going all in. Jody has found his niche: As a self-published author, he can completely control everything about his stories, which seems to be the perfect fit for him.

However, whether you self-publish or have a publisher, you will have to learn how to market your book. Book signing tours are part of the package either way. John Grisham is one well-known novelist who started his career with A Time to Kill, a self-published novel. He went all in by touring the country, on his own, and selling books out of the trunk of his car.

I also want to add that being all in is about focusing all your energy on positive outcomes, understanding what you have control over and what you don’t, manifesting the vision, recognizing open doors when they present themselves, respecting people and their experiences, and being grateful for the opportunities that come your way. ~ Pauline

Phil Kliger

Phil Kliger is one of the reasons I have my own show on WSCA.

As an added benefit, Phil brought his friend Dakota La Croix to join us in studio. We talked about music, film, music in film, trivia, joy, and inner peace—organic, fun, and filled with laughter.

Three songs that would be on the soundtrack of Phil’s life: 1st song: “Glutton of Sympathy” by Jellyfish; 2nd song: “Makin’ It” by David Naughton; and 3rd song: Miles Davis a Tribute to Jack Johnson (1971).

All In with Pauline Hawkins

Michael and Adam.jpg

Michael and Adam Scharff or The Scharff Brothers are a production team and pioneers in Virtual Artist Development. They write, record, produce and teach in all musical genres. As a matter of fact, at the time of this recording, they were finishing up a lesson, so I started the show with four songs that they recorded and produced. Song 1: “Everybody Knows” by Tom Emerson, a local artist; Song 2: “Friday Night Oasis” by Sons of Alfond, a band out of Portland; Song 3: “Ghost of a Man” written by Scharff Brothers and sung by Sam Robbins who was just featured on the Voice and is graduating from Berklee College of Music this year; Song 4: “I Don’t Wanna Be You Anymore” by Isobel Goss, a 16 year old local artist.

Since we played four songs that Adam and Michael produced, we played two songs that would be on the soundtrack of their lives: 1st song: “Lucky Now” by Ryan Adams (Adam); 2nd song: “See the world” by Gomez (Michael).
