Welcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 14th September, 2019.
Coming up this week:
- And they’re off! My rapid release project has begun with NYSH launching on Monday 9th September
- I’ve done it at long last – Now You See Her is number 1 in paid on a US chart AND it got a coveted orange tag!
- I’ve taken delivery of my new covers for the Morecambe Bay trilogy – and they’re fab!
- It’s last-minute preparations for my next BookBub promo which starts on Monday 16th Sept … I’ll tell you how I’m tying it in with my rapid releases
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.
