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

Coming up this week:

  • Why there are signs of diminishing returns on BookBub this week
  • The results of my three list-building promos which have been running this week
  • We’re into the home straight as I’m now into the final 10k words of my second book of 2019

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.

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