Episode 97, release date Monday 8th January, 2018
Ron Vitale caught my attention on Twitter at the beginning of 2017 because of an excellent post that he made on his blog outlining in great detail his indie-author outgoings and income.
Few authors dare to share this information, but Ron broke it all down in great detail holding back nothing in the process.
When Ron got in touch with me to share the details of his latest book launch – revealing every detail of costs, what worked and what didn't – I couldn't resist catching up with him to find out how it had gone.
Unfortunately, the launch failed to ignite for Ron – but he walked away with some great learning points to fuel his future career as an indie author.
