    #72: Why I've made a book called 'The Indie Author'

    #72: Why I've made a book called 'The Indie Author'

    Today, I am sharing with I started 'The Indie Author' project, and why I've stuck with it over these last two years.

    (I definitely haven't completed every project I've started, believe me...)

    I talk about:


    Why I'm so passionate about self-publishing and the 'indie' movement
    How traditional publishing isn't the only way, and may not be the best fit for you right now
    The writers who first blew my mind
    The power of learning from stories vs information

Jas is exceptional

If you’re an INFP or intuitive/sensitive creator, you’ve found a wonderful spot to feel connected. Jas shines a light on the beauty and uniqueness of being an INF, how to show up to be our best selves and keep moving in our creative practices even when times are difficult. He honestly feels like a friend afar. I always feel seen and centered and uplifted after listening to his podcast. Thanks, Jas!

A place to call home

I can’t thank Jas enough for creating the INF Club! I’m an INFJ and I’ve truly felt like I’ve found my tribe after a lifetime of feeling so different. Give this show a listen. You won’t regret it!
