A must-listen show for those interested in selling more books

As a podcast listener to several book-selling and author shows, this is one of the few that has continued to stay in my playlist - the content is relevant, up-to-date, and helpful. Bryan and Clare make a great team, and are a credit to the independent publishing community. Don't be fooled by the introduction, which is reminiscent of Stuart Smalley's "Daily Affirmations," - this is a quality show about selling more books.

Good Old Dayd

Is anyone else old enough to remember when the Sell More Books podcast was about how to sell more books?

Top Show, Keeps this author right up to date

I’ve been listening to this show for a while now, and Bryan Cohen and Jim Kukral are excellent co-presenters, complementing each other perfectly.

Together they explore news stories and issues relevant to the author today, keeping abreast of changes and trends, and putting forward cutting edge ideas authors use or need to use today. Everything is game for discussion.

Of the podcasts I listen to weekly, this is one I’d never miss!
