GP509 - Podcasting and Challenges of Self Publishing


We're reissuing this episode of the GetPublished! Radio show to coincide with Gerald Everett Jones's presentation on July 13, 2018 to The Writers Guild - Kenya at the National Museums of Kenya in Nairobi: Should Authors and Editors Be Podcasters?

Gerald puts podcasting in the context of social media outreach for authors and editors. He focuses on how to engage your audience by avoiding the pitfall of Look at Me! and emphasizing Think About This! #amwriting #selfpub #podcast

This entertaining half-hour episode also has wicked banter with Gerald's fellow wizards, journalist Cheyenne Cockrell and sci-fi guru Thomas Page.

NOTE: Since this episode was recorded, the Pronoun.com service has been discontinued. Smashwords continues to be a major player in the EPUB space, and PublishDrive is growing fast.

To find out more about how to break into print (or electrons!), visit https://getpublishedradio.com. You can subscribe to our podcasts for free on major distribution services, including iTunes Store, Google Play, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Stitcher, Feedburner, and Spotify.
