Tune into The Writer’s Show Podcast for Self Publishing Success Stories
What’s it all about then eh? Well, on the podcast we love to talk to writers (and songwriters) about their self publishing success stories.
Each podcast episode features information on writing, creativity and self publishing. We talk to authors who share the secrets of their own self publishing success and hopefully inspire you on what’s possible when you self publish an eBook on Kindle, Smashwords, iTunes and Amazon. If you’re a musician, you’ll get inspiration from the great songwriters we talk to about the art and craft of songwriting.
There are a thousand inspiring stories of writers just like you who have found that the secrets to independent writing success is a combination of craft and business. Many indie writers rush to self publish without a thought about editing, layout, cover design, platform building or even having a basic launch plan.
Here’s 5 reasons why that is a very bad idea:
- Writing is a journey that doesn’t end at the first draft. Hire an editor
- Books are really judged by their cover. Don’t end up on this list. Hire a graphic designer
- You need a launch plan. Don’t just create a Smashwords and KDP account and press the big sexy PUBLISH button. What’s your launch plan?
- One thing all indie writers have is a platform. Do you? You should. Learn how
In the Writers’ Show podcast I talk to writers about the art and craft of writing and self publishing and try to understand how their approach has helped them find success with their independently published books.
If you’re a writer with a book to promote and keen to share your self publishing journey with our audience, you can contact me here.
