A roadmap to self publishing

I stumbled upon this podcast while I was looking into the process of self publishing my first book and it has been eye opening. Thanks so much for all the advice and hope.

The content seems well thought out and engaging. But I’m turned off by the incessant background music. I liken it to the bass playing loudly from the car next to me at a stoplight. All the windows are rolled up but my car still quakes with every boom, boom, boom. The only thing I can do is drive on or, in this case, look for another podcast.

Search no more.

Each and every one of us is searching for clarity among abundant sources of information. Reedsy has created the answer, known simply as BESTSELLER. Information is presented in a conversational tone with stories from people just like us. Check out the Prologue podcast if you are short on time. I am certain you will carve out more time once you find value in the content. Bravo Reedsy, just what I needed.
