    Paul, I listen to your pod casts on a regular basis and they are excellent, but the one with Adam Croft must one of the best I have heard to date (including compared to other pod-casters I listen to). Adam was such an interesting guest, but the most important thing was his very realistic and level headed attitude towards self-publishing. Well done.
    Best regards,
    PS I look forward to the day I make it as a guest on your show!

      Hi Martin, thanks very much for this fab feedback, it made my day! Really pleased you enjoyed the interview. I’ve been checking you out online – you meet all my guest criteria ie you have a strong online presence and you’ve self-published & you’re making sales … so I’ll be in touch to see about an interview. I’ve got guests scheduled to 7th August at the moment, so I’ll start booking recordings again in July – I’ll get in touch then. Best wishes, Paul
