Paul Teague authorWelcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 14th January 2017

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.

I beat the clock today, writing my first 2k words in that first 60-minute session.

The Action Machine is exactly the same software, just a different name.
