Great resources and wisdom from experience! 📚

Listened to “Ebook Publishing Tips, Tricks and Traps”. Learned about the trend of Ebooks. Since competitions has risen, it is tougher for authors to get seen. This episode really resonated with me since I have published an ebook on Amazon myself.

Enjoyed learning about the dangers of exclusivity. I may choose to go wider next time. I also love libraries and love that they provide ebooks. I agree with Mark Coker in many different points. I think an ebook is more than just text.
Thanks for laying out a blueprint for making a successful book.

This is an awesome podcast with great resources! Recommend it to authors or anyone interested in publishing while learning the do’s and don’ts.

Been Listening Since 2018

Thomas is so faithful with this podcast. He has a heart for God and it is great that I can see this in his episodes. His personality keeps me listening, even to the previous episodes I’ve already heard because it’s so good. I’d recommend this to anyone. It’s absolutely filled with golden nuggets! ✍🏻📓🖊📝
