Welcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 8th October 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Author Platform Bootcamp
This will be an occasional feature – episodes will pop up every now and then!
Thriller author Ian Sutherland is about to launch a new service for other authors called Author Platform Sidekick where he will nurture author platforms by focusing on growing their Twitter followers and email subscribers.
This project come about because Ian mastered Twitter early on in his own author career and published his first non-fiction book called Advanced Twitter Strategies for Authors to pass on all of the tricks and techniques.
The site is based at https://www.authorplatformsidekick.com/ and I'm one of Ian's beta testers.
