As a self-published author you will do most of the marketing and promotion yourself. In today's publishing environment both traditionally published and self-published authors do their own marketing. The real difference is that as a self-published author, you are the first in line for the profits.

Great Resource

As a cyber security professional who is working on his first novel, I have learned so much through this podcast! Really great stuff! Thanks, Brad

So much valuable information!!!

They take the time to brake down everything you need to know in to an easy to understand step by step process. I'm constantly looking for recent shows.

Finally! An up-to-date view of self-publishing!

This podcast is a “must-have” for anyone interested in self-publishing. Peggy is experienced in the field of ebooks, “print-on-demand” technology, preparing your book, marketing, and pretty much anything else you need to know about this business.

Every podcast focuses on a different aspect of self-publishing, and this helps the listener take in the information and not feel overwhelmed. My personal favorites are the “Basics of Self-Publishing,” “Ebook Basics,” “Preparing Your Manuscript for an Editor, “Catch some Smokin’ Blurbs,” and the cautionary tale, “The Pitfalls, Problems and Perils of Using a Vanity Press.” Some of these podcasts teach you what to do, but others will teach you what not to do.

I have looked through Itunes’ inventory for podcasts like this one, and unfortunately, I’ve only come across one other that’s up-to-date and gives good advice, “Savvy Self-Publishing,” but it’s no longer being updated.

Overall, “The Business of Writing Today,” podcasts are entertaining and enlightening. Keep up the good work, Peggy!
