Welcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 4th August, 2018.
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 [email protected].
Paul’s Podcast Diary
1) The Forgotten Children writing progress
Over 10k words written this week, thriller number 3 is underway!
Thriller 1/Don't Tell Meg has just arrived back from Helen Fazal after edits – I will work through Helen's edits after I have finished my own edit of The Murder Place.
I began my own edit of Thriller 2/The Murder Place on Saturday 3rd!
2) I've finally got my email automation and Twitter leads campaigns sorted. The key promos I want to run – because there's more profit in the deal – are ads to Self-Publishing Academy here. If you'd like to access the four free videos, click HERE (Subscription required!)
Those promo panels were made with Canva – see https://www.canva.com/
