Welcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 9th May 2020.
Coming up this week:
- On the 4th year anniversary and 200th episode of this podcast diary, I have finally decided to make this my last instalment
- I’ll be telling you what’s coming next in my indie author career
- PLUS I’ll be giving you my final round-up of writing news
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 you're new to the podcast and want to easily access the back catalogue of podcast diaries, in chronological order, please check out this page.
If I ever miss something out, or you'd like more information, just drop me an email at [email protected].
