Paul Teague authorWelcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 16th November, 2019.

Coming up this week:

    • Brace for impact! It's been my blog tour this week and the reviews have been coming in thick and fast!
    • I've just released my week 10 book – Left for Dead – so that's the weekly releases now completed
    • I'm coming into land with Truth Be Told … and I can't wait to get it finished and have a break from all the deadlines
    • PLUS My big email Boo-Boo – prepare to have a good laugh at my expense!

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.

      Paul, I know you said it yourself, but this is NOT over. I refuse to believe that this won’t amount to much more over time. You’ve got the assets out there, you’re now much more discoverable and these will build more interest over time. I’m coming to think a rapid-release strategy is much more effective for authors with a more avid fanbase at the start. The good news is that all these books will earn you that rabid fanbase you’ve been unjustly denied. And the inspiration you’ve given all of us with your indefatigable work ethic and optimism is karmic gold that is bound to come back around:)

        Thanks for the vote of confidence Bill, Now You See Her was one of the most enjoyable writing experiences of the rapid release project, I really had a lot of fun teaming up on that one. Best wishes, Paul
