Episode 78: Jon Cronshaw [Take 2]

How To Use Vellum On A PC

Jon CronshawEpisode 78, release date Monday 28th August, 2017

Jon Cronshaw is a newly self-published sci-fi and dystopian author.

It's the second time on the podcast for Jon – we met at Carlisle's Borderlines Book Festival last year and at that time, Jon was about to self-publish his first book.

When I first spoke to Jon in January 2017, he'd just got the first book written.

He'd also been doing lots of reading for the Ray Bradbury Challenge and he'd done his homework about the best strategies to use for launch and promotion.

He's now got six books listed on Amazon and has another in the works – not bad for a year's work!
