Informative, fun and inspiring

I found Kristen’s podcast last week after she was a guest on the Sell More Books Show. I’ve been listening to author podcasts for a little over a year and have covered all the basics. Kristen’s podcast is a breath of fresh air. She’s my new favorite. Optimistic, real, and entertaining. Subscribe. You won’t be disappointed!

I’m a new listener, but already want to devour every episode! Kirsten gives in-depth, easy-to-understand, and practical steps to find success as an indie author. I highly recommend this podcast.
