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.

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.
