Paul Teague authorWelcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday Saturday 15th July, 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.

This Week's Talking Points

1) This week's writing progress – 5036 words written on Friday and I'll write another 5k on Saturday:

Writing progress week 1

2) This is the location of my new thriller – I needed somewhere that a millionaire might own in the UK, but somewhere claustrophobic too: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-3072342/What-s-REALLY-like-stay-night-Victorian-fort-middle-sea.html

My book will feature a fictional version of one of these forts.

3) I got the cover for my email marketing book this week, the old design is shown below – I'm still not sure!
