Welcome to Paul’s Podcast Diary for Saturday 2nd February, 2019.

Coming up this week:

  • I’m going to make it! My first 50k book to be written in 3 weeks!
  • It’s a ‘promo-fest’ with ads booked with BookSweeps, Amazon, Bargain Booksy and another submission to BookBub
  • AND I’m talking BookBrush, Lockscreen ads, email newsletters and more!

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 you’re new to the podcast and want to easily access the back catalogue of podcast diaries, in chronological order, please check out this page.
