I never miss it!
This podcast is one of the few I never miss. It’s fun, it’s quick, it’s informative, it’s smart. For anyone looking to learn behind the scenes tips on craft, branding, and marketing in publishing (especially indie publishing) this podcast is a must!
Learning and laughing
I’m so glad I found this podcast. I love podcasts where I feel like I’m sitting around having coffee as I listen to friends, which come to think of it, I kind of am since I like to listen to it in the morning while I’m having my coffee. I’m learning a lot about being an indie writer and am gaining even more respect for people who choose to publish their work themselves.
Informational and Entertaining
This is one of my never-miss podcasts. It’s wonderful.
