Best Writer’s Podcast out there!

I am a first time author and have been reading and searching for Podcasts to show me the way to publish. I ran across Marks podcast and it is fantastic! I am impressed by the information he provides as it is extremely informative and educational. I also truly respect his morals and ethics in this business. So much so, that I will not be publishing exclusively with another (as I had planned) and will be publishing my novel via Smashwords as my way of supporting the industry and Mark as a respected leader!

Entertaining & Informative

I love Mark's own story of starting Smashwords and how unlikely its success seemed. His advice on self-publishing is a nice blend of useful, hopeful and grounded. I particularly loved the line that 'isn't all publishing vanity publishing?' and his points about the different measures of writing success.

Mark can tell a good story, so the podcast is entertaining as well as informative.
