How To Use Vellum On A PC

Paul Teague authorWelcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Monday 29th 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.

If I ever miss something out, or you'd like more information, just drop me an email at paul@paulteague.com.

Gumroad manages the VAT for those of us in the UK, which is why I use it.
