Welcome to Paul’s Podcast Diary for Saturday 22nd July, 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.

If I ever miss something out, or you’d like more information, just drop me an email at paul@paulteague.com.

I originally booked through Booking.com so I could cancel my rooms if I needed to (which I did!) [My referral link btw]
