Paul’s Podcast Diary (Saturday 8th April)

Paul Teague authorWelcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 8th April, 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.

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

This Week's Talking Points

1) Hurrah! I got writing again this week. 5178 words written, this book has to be 1st draft completed by Friday 16th June. It's working title only at the moment, I need to come up with something much stronger!

I'm using the Novel Factory to plot out my book: https://paulteague.com/how-and-why-i-use-the-novel-factory-to-plot-my-books/

2) I'm co-hosting a live Q&A with Orna Ross from the The Alliance of Independent Authors on Tuesday 11th April – find out more at http://selfpublishingadvice.org/event/ask-alli-member-qa-self-publishing-questions-answered-by-orna-ross-and-paul-teague/

3) I won a Bronze in this year's Wishing Shelf Awards. I'm not really entering awards any more, mainly because most of them are social media ‘beauty contests' or outright money-making schemes, however, the Wishing Shelf Awards is highly recommended, because it's judged by real readers and is totally independent. I spoke to the creator of these awards, Edward Trayer, for the podcast, you can listen to the interview here.

4) Reminder! The Self-Publishing Conference in Leicester on Saturday 22nd April https://selfpublishingconference.org.uk/
