Greenleaf Book Group’s Published doesn’t dissappoint

I’ve been listening to ALL of Greenleaf Book Group’s podcasts (you think I’m kidding I think I’ve listened to 50). As authors, speakers, etc. we cannot do it all. Greenleaf shares valuable information around publishing, marketing and selling one’s book.

As a result, I feel more prepared to pivot with the publishing experience and better understand what I’m headed into. As well as where I need to push for my choice and where to let go and trust the experts based on who I am.

Thanks, Greenleaf, your podcasts have helped me gain confidence, understand this process from the publisher’s side as well as show me what’s coming up so I can come to it better prepared.

So Informative for Indie Authors!

In my opinion, this is the premier podcast for authors. Every month they have a new amazing guest who is an expert in a different area of publishing! And Tanya is a great host. They literally cover everything - from editing, to designing your book cover, to getting into bookstores, and marketing your book and social media. It’s so helpful for independent or first time authors who are looking to learn more about publishing. Thanks Greenleaf!

Consistently Informative and Fun

I’ve been listening off and on for months, and this podcast keeps me checking back. They’ve had lots of great guests who give real publishing advice you don’t see in every listicle. Tanya always asks the questions I wish I could ask. She has a great rapport with everyone and I’ve been tuning in long enough to feel like we’re friends, lol. I just wish the episodes were longer!
