And now for the news!
Some highlights from this month in the world of self-publishing!
The biggest news in self-publishing this week comes from The Good Men Project (again! We’re so excited about their new focus on self-publishing, as evidenced by multiple recent related articles on the subject). Contributor Rose Ernst put together this list of, you guessed it, twenty-nine must-listen podcast episodes on the subject of self-publishing. Writes Ernst, “My life changed when I discovered independent publishing in December 2017. Since then, I’ve published seven mysteries, one non-fiction book, and have two more in the pipeline. I’ve sold over 5,500 copies and given away 40,000. And I owe it all to Joanna Penn. The host of the Creative Penn Podcast.”
Chances are, if you’ve spent much time around both self-publishing and podcasts, you will already have heard of the Creative Penn. But if you haven’t listened to the show before, it can feel incredibly daunting to figure out where to start with Penn’s enormous backlist of episodes. And that’s where Ernst’s list comes in really useful, providing as it does a list of recommendations not just for several must-not-miss Creative Penn episodes but also recommendations for where to start when digging into The Author Biz, Rocking Self-Publishing, the Self-Publishing Roundtable, How Do You Write, and numerous other amazing podcasts. This list is absolutely critical guidance for anyone interested in self-publishing, period! We are so grateful to Ernst for taking the time to put together such a thoughtfully curated selection of episodes (all of which are hyperlinked for easy listening, another bonus!).
