THANKS SO MUCH FOR CHECKING OUT MY PATREON PAGE!

Having grown up with an intense passion for reading and writing, I started writing when I was thirteen years old, was drawn to bookselling and have remained in the industry, wearing many different hats, since 1992.


In the past half dozen years, most people recognize my face and voice as "Mark From Kobo" (a running joke related to my visibility in the industry heading up Kobo's self-publishing platform, Kobo Writing Life, combined with the fact that Lefebvre is rather difficult for most non-French people to spell or pronounce).

My greatest passion in the last ten years has been working with and helping writers and publishers with discovering and implementing the amazing opportunities that now exist for writers and creators. I thrive in that place where innovation and technology intersect with creativity and storytelling.

I started the Stark Reflections on Writing & Publishing podcast as a way to continue to provide insights and perspective to authors and other publishing professionals. I have always felt that it was important to provide a perspective that balances the understanding and respect for both the "self-publishing" and the "traditional publishing" communities; and my desire is for my weekly podcast to reflect that, drawn from both my twenty-five plus years as a writer and industry professional as well as the fact that I first embraced self-publishing in 2004 when I released my first book ONE HAND SCREAMING, a collection of my previously published short stories.

My primary goal is to help writers and other creative people with understanding the basics of the business of publishing as well as to explore ideas and opportunities that exist so that they can make the most informed decisions and determine, for themselves, their own unique pathway to success.

There is no "magic bullet" nor is any one path or one option the best thing for everyone. I truly believe that writers and other industry professionals need to continue to inform and educate themselves in order to discover and forge their own unique paths and careers.

I love hosting this podcast, love sharing ideas and adore bringing insights and though-provoking concepts to writers. And I'm hoping to engage with your Patreon support to help fund the ongoing maintenance costs as well as compensate for the 4 to 6 hours per week that I dedicate to making this podcast happen.
