Are you writing your first book? Not sure what else you should be focusing on (Marketing? Facebook ads? The so important author newsletter? The next book?) – well that’s exactly what we discussed in last week’s SELF PUBLISHING ANSWERS podcast! So if you’re interested, check it out.
If you haven’t heard yet, I’m not co-hosting the Self Publishing Answers podcast with Nick Thacker and Kevin Tumlinson. It’s a great podcast with 37 episodes before I jumped in, but you can find my two (and others as they’re released) below:
We have some great topics coming down the pipeline, and amazing guests, so stay tuned!
Michael La Ronn is an author, poet, public speaker, and entrepreneur. He writes fearless fantasy and Decision Select Novels, and he is known for his quirky, imaginative writing style. He also writes nonfiction about writing and indie publishing.
In 2012, a life-threatening illness put him in the hospital. Realizing that life was too short, he devoted himself to self-publishing, entrepreneurship, and all the other punishments that indie authors love to bring upon themselves. And he loves every moment of it.
I’ll be giving away the books in the picture, along with an Audiobook copy of my book Creative Writing Career. If you are an author and have ever wanted encouragement in your writing, advice on going pro, or really just want to be a better writer – this giveaway is for you! I have 3 packs I’ll be giving away randomly, and all you have to do is sign up for my newsletter and confirm via SloanArtist@gmail.com.
Thank you for entering, and good luck!
