Welcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 20th July, 2019.
Coming up this week:
- I’m back to listing in Giveaway events as I start to top up my email lists – I’m now listed in FOUR thriller events!
- Now You See Her is 5k words from the end – I’ll let you know how the writing & editing is going
- More reshuffles than the UK government – I’ve tweaked my rapid release plans once again!
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.
