Paul Teague authorWelcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Monday 22nd August 2016.

This diary charts my self-publishing journey – the ups the downs, the successes and the failures.

Everything goes into this diary, week-by-week, but you'll also find it a source of great tips, resources, tools, podcast recommendations and so on.
