Welcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 19th January, 2019.
Coming up this week:
- I’m back to writing after 6 months doing other things
- My results from a Fiverr impromptu promo
- I submitted The Secret Bunker for a BookBub this week – but am I in or am I out?
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.
If I ever miss something out, or you'd like more information, just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
