    Where Can I Read Your Books for Free?

    We have had some interesting and even curly questions asked over the years. As S.E. Smith is a wide author and not in Kindle Unlimited (KU), by far the most popular curly question from readers is, "How do I read your books for free?".
     
    In this podcast, Narelle discusses the approach her and Susan use to respond to readers seeking free books. Rather than ignore, send to spam, or shame, Narelle and Susan's approach is to entice the reader to read the free books S.E. Smith makes available on her website with a view to converting the reader into a paying reader.

    What is your particular coaching method and why does it work?

    Selecting a coach to work with is a personal choice because there are obviously many different coaches and many different coaching styles. How do you know who to go with as what is right for one person may not be right for you?
     
    In this podcast, Narelle Todd shares her approach to coaching that helps authors achieve (and exceed) their goals. An experienced coach, Narelle tailors her approach to each person, by adapting her approach for the stage of writing and business the author is at. Oh, and she reads her authors's books because she believes they are a window to an author's soul.
