Welcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 23rd November, 2019.
Coming up this week:
- At last – the writing is over! I finished Truth Be Told this afternoon, that’s my 8th – and last – book of 2019 competed
- My edits of Morecambe Bay 2, Circle of Lies are also completed and it's all cued up ready for its December 9th release
- I have an important announcement about the future of this podcast – if you’re a regular listener please make sure you stay tuned until the end!
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.

Lets you track price changes and set alerts.
Same, but with sales rankings (and a less friendly user interface).
A browser extension that shows you the price evolution directly on the Amazon product page (but unfortunately doesn't work for ebooks, only physical copies).
