Paul Teague authorWelcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 6th January, 2017.

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.
